Daily film poll. Between now and @theacademy awards on March 4th, we are sparring off the 2017 titles. Both films give two different narratives of the 2013 Boston marathon bombing: "Stronger" (2017, David Gordon Green) vs. "Patriots Day" (2016, Peter Berg).
Made of Honor (2008)
Director: Paul Weiland
Main Cast: Patrick Dempsey, Michelle Monaghan, Kevin McKidd
Distributor: Sony Pictures
Rating: PG-13 (for sexual content and language)
Genre: Comedy, Romance
Made of Honor is a romantic comedy about a man who finally realizes he loves his best friend but unfortunately during her trip to Scotland she gets engaged. She asks him to be her maid of honor and he decides to try to win her over before the big day. The film is just like the 90s film My Best Friend's Wedding but has the genders reversed. The film is not very funny and is incredibly predictable. It started off with potential but doesn't live up to it. Patrick Dempsey and Michelle Monaghan have decent chemistry but unfortunately it's better as just friends. It's also a cliché 2000s romantic comedy. Made of Honor is alright in some areas but ultimately falls short because we've seen this story before.
