    The movie will keep you occupied for the better part of it. Some funny parts although its entirely predictable. Good date movie to take your girl to.

    For the sake of credibility, there should be a scene in which Hannah(Michelle Monaghan) broaches the subject of her best friend's serial dating as a serious matter. Hannah loves her best friend Tom(Patrick Dempsey) unconditionally. But if they are to give people something to talk about, Hannah needs to set some conditions for Tom, so she can be rest assured that his womanizing ways For the sake of credibility, there should be a scene in which Hannah(Michelle Monaghan) broaches the subject of her best friend's serial dating as a serious matter. Hannah loves her best friend Tom(Patrick Dempsey) unconditionally. But if they are to give people something to talk about, Hannah needs to set some conditions for Tom, so she can be rest assured that his womanizing ways are a thing of the past. A promise. But that's too complex for "Made of Honor". After all, Tom is a good man. How do we know? He pets strange dogs and helps old people into their rowboats. Even though Monaghan brings an innate intelligence to her role, the film asserts that a woman's heart is bigger than her brain. "Made of Honor" is an insult to any smart woman's intelligence, but Monaghan and Dempsey have an effortless chemistry that can't be dismissed. The whole point of going to the movies is to be entertained, but sometimes, a little truth would be nice. And the truth is: Tom's a bit of a cad, but his rough edges are smoothed out by a patriarchial paradigm and American boosterism. Expand

    Predictable but cute, I think the reviews are a bit harsh. Michelle Monaghan is charming, but Patrick Dempsey as some irresistible stud is a bit far fetched. Funny and enjoyable.

    A strong opening, bursting with wit and vigour, gives way to a predictable, patronising and immensely lazy second half. Could have been so much more.

    Director Paul Weiland and the three (!) screenwriters it took to boil down thousands of bad movies into 101 minutes haven't provided this one with a single original thought; it should only entertain those still getting adjusted to the idea of talkies.
  3. Has something a bit edgier in mind than the usual, soft-focused wedding bell high jinks. For the most part, that's exactly what it delivers -- an amusing, smartly cast romantic comedy told from a guy's perspective.
