My Best Friend’s Wedding (1997)
Julia Roberts is the queen of wedding movies, but her most noteworthy performance has to be as Julianne Potter in My Best Friend’s Wedding. The chain-smoking, self-absorbed food critic does everything possible to destroy the wedding of her best friend Michael (Dermot Mulroney) to the peppy Kimmy (Cameron Diaz) — from indulging in some seriously cringe-worthy karaoke to kissing the groom.
But in the end she makes the most selfless decision of all and brings Michael and Kim back together to have a breathtaking wedding. The ceremony is nice, but what’s most memorable is Julianne’s maid-of-honor toast, when she allows “her song” with Michael to be the couple’s first dance (tear).
Never fear! Things end on a happy note when Julianne’s gay best friend George (Rupert Everett) shows up, and by God, there’s dancing!
