Day 5. My Best Friend’s Wedding (1997). Directed by P.J. Hogan. 

My Best Friend’s Wedding (1997) Score: 51%

This Julia Roberts vehicle’s first half is actually slightly enjoyable, but it becomes infinitely worse during the restaurant scene when everybody around the table starts singing, in unison, as though the entire film had been a musical up until then.

The reason it doesn’t feel as iconic as other 90’s Hollywood romcoms is it disappointingly opts for large dollops of cheese in its second half instead of running with the naughtier streak it showed initially. Cheese comes with the genre’s territory, but this film swiftly becomes an out of date Brie. What was Rupert Everett thinking when he signed on?
