What Made I love "My Best Friend's Wedding"?

My favorite scene.....

'Blonde'Cameron Diaz and 'Curly' Julia Robert made I love this movie.

"The story that that has touched each one of us... definitely a lot of us would do everything just to have what we want .... to have what we like... to have the one we love..."

It's a story of love revealed when Julianne realizes that she is in love...with her best friend, Michael, who is going to be married to someone else. The only thought in her head is that she has to break up Michael and Kimmy. George, her boss, comes to the rescue, but helps her open her eyes to se what she needs to do. Many people will feel that they could related to this story (but i don't okay...I just adore Julia & Cameron..they're superb!). The songs were great especially "I Say a little pray " (also my favorite scene when they had dinner together and George started to sing this song ) and "the way you look tonight" (i'm an oldies songs lovers...evergreen..). Yes, I do have the soundtrack album but I lost it! huhuhu....but the songs keeps playing in my head ... so no regret because i know i can still listen and sing this song until now....

This romantic comedy movie was in 1997 and I was studied at UiTM, Shah Alam. (Ni zaman dating ngan husband lah dulu....eceh.....)

Some of Memorable Quote of "My Best Friend's Wedding"

Julianne Potter: Michael... I love you. I've loved you for nine years, I've just been too arrogant and scared to realize it, and... well, now I'm just scared. So, I realize this comes at a very inopportune time but I really have this gigantic favor to ask of you. Choose me. Marry me. Let me make you happy. Oh, that sounds like three favors, doesn't it?
Kimmy Wallace: You kissed him!
Ladies in the bathroom: [gasps]
Kimmy Wallace: At my parents' house.
Ladies in the bathroom: [gasps]
Kimmy Wallace: On my wedding day.
Ladies in the bathroom: Bitch!
Ladies in the bathroom: Tramp!
Kimmy Wallace: I love this man, and there is no way I am going to give him up for some big-haired food critic.

George Downes: When you kissed Michael did he kiss you back?
Julianne Potter: What do you mean? We were lip to lip.
Michael O'Neill: Kimmy says if you love someone you say it, you say it right then, out loud. Otherwise the moment just...
Julianne Potter: Passes you by...
Michael O'Neill: Passes you by...
Julianne Potter: I had the strangest dream. I dreamt that some psychopath was trying to break the two of you up. Luckily, I woke up and I see that the world is just as it should be. For my best friend has won the best woman. I didn't buy you a gift. But this is on loan until you two find your song...
Julianne Potter: I'm pond scum. Well, lower actually. I'm like the fungus that feeds on pond scum.
Michael O'Neill: Lower. The pus that infects the mucus that cruds up the fungus that feeds on the pond scum. On the other hand, thank you for loving me that much, that way. It's pretty flattering.
Julianne Potter: Except it makes me fungus.
Kimmy Wallace: He's got you on a pedestal and me in his arms.
George Downes: Tell him you love him. Bite the bullet.
George Downes: It's amazing the clarity that comes with psychotic jealousy.
George Downes: The misery, the exquisite tragedy. The Susan Hayward of it all. I can just picture you there, sitting alone at your table in your lavender gown.
Julianne Potter: Did I tell you my gown was lavender?
George Downes: Hair swept up. Haven't touched your cake. Probably drumming your fingernails on the white linen tablecloth, the way you do when you're really feeling down. Perhaps looking at those nails thinking: 'God, I should have stopped in all my evil plotting to have that manicure, but it's too late now.
Julianne Potter: George, I didn't tell you my dress was lavender.
George Downes: Suddenly, a familiar song. And, you're off your chair in one, exquisite movement... wondering, searching, sniffing the wind like a dapple deer. Has God heard your little prayer? Will Cinderella dance again? And then, suddenly, the crowds part and there he is: sleek, stylish... radiant with charisma. Bizarrely, he's on the telephone. But then, so are you. And then he comes towards you... the moves of a jungle cat. Although you quite correctly sense that he is... gay... like most devastatingly handsome single men of his age are, you think... what the hell. Life goes on. Maybe there won't be marriage... maybe there won't be sex... but, by God, there'll be dancing.
George Downes: Why don't we stop and have a drink? You can take a later flight.
Julianne Potter: No, no, no, no. I'm a busy girl. I've got exactly four days to break up a wedding, steal the bride's fella and I haven't one clue how to do it.
Julianne Potter: Crème brûlée can never be Jell-O. YOU could never be Jell-O.
Kimmy Wallace: I HAVE to be Jell-O!
Julianne Potter: You're never gonna be Jell-O!
George Downes: Maybe there won't be marriage, maybe there won't be sex, but by God there'll be dancing!
Kimmy Wallace: He sucks soup through his front teeth.
Julianne Potter: That's a trademark move - don't touch that one.
Kimmy Wallace: But he sure can kiss.
Julianne Potter: This is my one chance at happiness. I have to be ruthless!
Kimmy Wallace: You kissed him! At my parents house! On my wedding day!
George Downes: Michael's chasing Kimmy?
Julianne Potter: Yes!
George Downes: You're chasing Michael?
Julianne Potter: YES!
George Downes: Who's chasing you... nobody, get it? There's your answer. It's Kimmy.
Julianne Potter: If he were feeling what I'm feeling then he would know how it feels.
Michael O'Neill: The ring.
[handing the box to Jules]
Julianne Potter: [nervous] Why are you giving this to me?
Michael O'Neill: Because I don't trust Scotty.
George Downes: [George is about to be introduced to Kimmy's family] Oh my god, race you to the altar!
Julianne Potter: [under her breath] Underplay.
George Downes: Got it.
[to a relative]
George Downes: HEY! How ya doin? I'm Jules' fiance! Just stopped by for a little conjugal visit!
