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.
