This is my favorite Julia Roberts role. Her face, and especially her eyes are so expressive. You can see the conflicting emotions. She wants her man; tries to take down her competition and yet has a lot of respect for the bride to be.
Rupert is a joy. He is a great friend; has some great lines and the scene in the restaurant where he sings is priceless.
This was the first movie I ever saw with Cameron Diaz. There is no way Julia could have hated such a charming young woman.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

The third scene is at dinner with the Bride's family and friends where the Bride relates the tales she heard from the Groom about the past behaviour of Julianne which is clearly fiction. At this juncture George tells the tale of how he and Julianne met which seems to reveal that he is gay but this too is obviously fiction and another ploy to mislead as he is astutely playing the game of hiding his love for Julianne but is also protecting her from further embarrassment. In the final scene when George approaches Julianne on the dance floor, he continues this act by saying, '...and although you quite correctly sense that he is gay (referring to the cameo part being played as a gay) you think, "What the hell?" Life goes on. Maybe there won't be marriage. Maybe there won't be sex (at this point he grimaces) but, by god, there will be dancing!'
The film is not about a love triangle but about a man's love for a woman and how he succeeds at winning her. George is in love with Julianne but recognises her infatuation for her long-term male friend. He recognises that he has to be patient so plays with her at her game anticipating hopefully the final outcome; this is why he takes a plane and flies quite a distance even though he does not like flying. He wants to be by her side when she is in difficulty and it will be noticed that he was always there. He cares deeply about her and so too do the Bride and Groom towards each other. George's and Julianne's attraction for each other in the final scene is that of a heterosexual couple.
While this is an enjoyable romantic comedy that expresses affection and love yet also highlights the caring aspect of all good relationships; it is a modern sophisticated 'Me Tarzan, you Jane' story well acted by all involved.
Overall I found this film funny and endearing in some parts. I always liked Julia Roberts and Cameron Diaz so it was funny to see the two actresses work together.
Good stuff all around, and satisfyingly unpredictable, my wife and I both had opposing ideas for the ending right up unto the end, I said that she would not get the guy even with all of the crazy plot, my wife said that she would get the guy....
OK, so when you watch it you will know who was right....have fun!
Rupert Everett steals the show but there's some classic scenes all round, a twist on a romcom with plenty of laughs and a great soundtrack. One for the girls that most men won't mind too much!
