Something Borrowed, Something Blew

29 Apr

The mild and easygoing Made of Honor is certainly entertaining enough. But don’t get any ideas: This is no My Best Friend’s Wedding Lite. Sure, it’s basically the same story in reverse — a guy realizes he’s in love with his best friend just as she’s about to get married to someone else, and he tries to break up the wedding — but it’s not as good. Not that it doesn’t have its charms. Patrick Dempsey makes an appealing lead, and he and Michelle Monaghan have good chemistry. But too many of the plot points feel tired, and overall, the film feels longer than its 97-minute running time. So I’ll give Made an average grade of C. Not terrible, not great. But not worth paying admission to see.
