One word description of Made of Honor: : Clichéd.
If you’ve watched My Best Friend’s Wedding, Runaway Bride or any other romantic comedy involving the love of the protagonist’s life about to marry someone else, you can guess the overall plot, minor plot points and ending to this film.
So minor spoilers are included below.
When the hero realizes he loves the girl, you already know she will announce her upcoming sudden marriage just then.
When the hero tries to prove his superiority against the rival, you already know who will come out looking better.
When the rival seems all to perfect, you already know that even more perfection will pop up.
When the hero finally repents of his lifetime of womanizing and turns over a new leaf, you already know that some girl is going to hit on him… And you already know that the girl he loves will stumble upon this compromising position.
And at the last minute, when the hero has given up and the marriage is underway and the priest reaches the “If anyone objects to this marriage” bit… Yup, that’s right.
Only two things I didn’t predict quite right – how the dogs fit in, and how the geek at the basketball games fit in.
Other than that, the show is a pretty decent watch – but kinda short on laughs.
The gals will of course love the show’s romantic plot full of romantic and manly Scotsmen with romantic accents doing romantic things in the romantically beautiful countryside.
The guys on the other hand may have catatonic flashbacks to the repeated sinkings of the Titanic. (We’ll get you for this one day, James Cameron!!!!)
But hey, if you want your girl to come with you to watch Hulk or Hellboy II… Quid pro quo.
