Katherine Heigl takes the lead in this film playing a woman that’s served as a bridesmaid 27 times. There’s a lot of ugly dresses with poofy sleeves, funny moments, and a bit of romance involved in this one.

The moment I wake up … before I put on my makeup … I say a little prayer for youuuuuu.

If you have yet to see this movie, you’ll be walking away from it singing that little diddy. Julia Roberts is the star of the show in this hilarious and heart-wrenching tear-jerker. Her best friend, played by Dermot Mulroney, is getting married – just on the cusp of their pact coming to a close. A pact that included that by the time they came of a certain age and they weren’t married – they would marry each other.

Now, he’s about to say I do to Cameron Diaz and she realizes that she’s in love him.

Runaway Bride

Julia Roberts hits the big screen here too, and pairs up with the man she made Pretty Woman with – Richard Gere. The chemistry between them is electric, as we already know, and this movie shows it.
