My Best Friend’s Wedding through the male’s viewpoint. Made of Honor.
I don’t want to spend a WHOLE lot of time on this because it was an Iron Man weekend for me, but I did see it so I thought I should write my review on it. It was decent. There were some funny moments but that’s about it. SOME. There was no heart touching moments, moments that would and should touch your heart with softness of care; nope, none of that.
Why did I take a long time to write this review? This movie lacked inspiration to encourage me to write, so I put it off. Notice I wrote Iron Man’s review quick because of how excited I was to see it. Zero excitement for this movie. I should just say I was beaten and dragged to see it, but no need to lie.
I believe every movie has something good to offer, even if it’s minute. In Made of Honor it was the trust lines and scenes. It was unique in this film and not something that seemingly copied from My Best Friend’s Wedding, which could have been called the Subversive Wedding Crasher, and Made of Honor forwent the singing table scene, smart move. Though that scene tends to be a cheesy cool factor of MBFW; simpler, sorry. I had a bride that was mostly likable and so Made of Honor had a groom that was mostly likeable. The major difference between the two movies was their endings and the fact that MBFW is by far the better film.
Made of Honor was alright, but forgettable. I don’t care to ever see it again and I don’t know if I’d even suggest people that I know to see it. It was just nice to see a movie like Iron Man because it was a very good movie; after months and months of crap it was time to have a very good movie. Then I had to go and shove a bad taste in my mouth by deciding to see this one…oops. Good thing the power of Iron Man is so strong or I’d be scrubbing my tongue still.
