“As this is my first blog posting I thought I’d make it a fun one so that you can all get to know me a bit…
So I was watching tv the other day when I saw a commercial for “Bride Wars” with Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway. It got me thinking about other wedding movies that I’ve seen so I thought I’d share with you my top 5 favorite wedding flicks.
(These are in no particular order)
#1- Father of the Bride- Ok I know I said these were in no particular order but this is by FAR my favorite wedding movie. I could seriously watch this movie every day and not get sick of it. I love when they meet with the wedding planner (played by Martin Short) and Steve Martin is so clearly out of his element. And Diane Keaton plays the MOB so perfectly. It’s such a classic.
#2- Wedding Crashers- I must have watched this movie about 50 times when it first came out. Maybe I like it so much because Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson are in it but it’s also great because even this “perfect” family they think they’ve crashed appears to have its own flaws.
#3- Runaway Bride- Male lead in this movie: Richard Gere, enough said.
#4- My Best Friends Wedding- I love Julia Roberts and I especially love the scene where the whole family is at the pre-wedding luncheon and they all break out into song…”I’ll say a little prayer for you”…
#5- My Big Fat Greek Wedding- It was neat to see the comic spin put on the traditional Greek wedding. My favorite scene was when Toula was getting ready with the help of her massive bridal party and when she was finally dressed and ready to go she looks in the mirror and declares that she looks like a “snow beast”.
What are your top wedding flicks?”
