    A twisted version of My Big Fat Greek Wedding where petty motivations and an overabundance of amorality prompt both laughs and pity. Splendid portrayal by Colette of an ugly duckling who, in the process of transforming into a swan, finds her manic dysfunctional darkness and dishonesty resisting conversion to her new self-image. An exceptionally intelligent film brimming with authenticity, A twisted version of My Big Fat Greek Wedding where petty motivations and an overabundance of amorality prompt both laughs and pity. Splendid portrayal by Colette of an ugly duckling who, in the process of transforming into a swan, finds her manic dysfunctional darkness and dishonesty resisting conversion to her new self-image. An exceptionally intelligent film brimming with authenticity, appealing both to the chick flick set and those who find that genre superficial. Expand

    This film is hilarious, the acting is splendid, and the story has very deep moments. A nice satire on provincial life and its detriments. The sex scene is perhaps the best scene I've ever seen in a movie.

    You'll notice romantic-comedies are still using Muriel's Wedding as inspiration. Certainly not the finest work to come out of Australia but with Toni Collette and Abba alone, you're sure to enjoy it.

    While Muriel's Wedding has its moments of exhilarating humor, it is, as often as not, downbeat and even mean-spirited.

    A crowd pleaser that spices a tired formula with genuine feeling.
  3. There's poignant drama in this brash, sometimes overstated film, and Muriel's transformation is truly touching.
