My Best Friend's Wedding (1997)

By the mid-90s, Julia Roberts was in a career slump.  A slew of duds since The Pelican Brief (1993) had America wondering if their sweetheart's career was perhaps dying young and not made of steel like the magnolia she once portrayed ;-)  Luckily she was offered My Best Friend's Wedding, a hilarious rom com that would revive her flatlining filmography and give audiences something to talk about ;-)

  1. It’s one of my favorite movies so I enjoyed seeing the real life pictures of locations from the movie. The Church is really huge and magnificent, perfect for a beautiful wedding. I’m getting married next month and my ceremony will also be at a similar chapel in our locality, followed by a grand reception at one of the amazing venues in Los Angeles.
