Well, it's official, we're old. My Best Friend's Wedding turns 20 today, and that can only mean one thing — it's time to breakdown some of our favorite moments from this 90s classic romantic comedy. But wait, is it a comedy? Is it romantic? Is it one woman's quest to ruin the lives of innocent people? Was Julia Roberts's Jules just a hopeless romantic anti-hero, or was she really a selfish brat who didn't know what she wanted until she couldn't have it? That's a question for the ages. For now, let's look back at some of the best wedding moments from one of the most debated (no it's not that widely debated at all) movies of our time! Here, our top 5 moments from My Best Friend's Wedding.
THAT Brunch Scene
Whose family doesn't burst into song at every meal, amirite? Every time we hear "I Say a Little Prayer" we just imagine Rupert Everett crooning into our ears.
The Vengeful Sluts
Um, Kimmy's only other bridesmaids are her cousins who she describes as vengeful sluts. That's nice Kimmy. She also puts them in very poufy, very yellow, very floral dresses. Bride of the year! (Oh and that just happens to be Golden Globe-winning actress Rachel Griffiths.)
You Can Never Be Jell-O
Well, she's right isn't she? Cameron Diaz's Kimmy is creme brulee, she could never be Jell-O.
Sure, Jules did a lot of really really messed up stuff to her best friend, his wife, and her family. But it's all made better (is it? is it really?) when she gifts the newlyweds with a first dance song she used to share with Michael — "The Way You Look Tonight." And we all learn a big lesson. WTF.
Anything Involving Rupert Everett
From the minute we see him at the restaurant dining with Jules we know we're in for something special. Everett basically just steals the scene from the world's most epic scene stealer, Julia Roberts, every time he appears. And side note, he's the only voice of reason in this entire story who tells Jules to stop the car and that Michael isn't chasing her, he's chasing Kimmy.
I think we're ready for a My Best Friend's Wedding sequel aren't we?
