9/10
Richard Gere and Julia Roberts started the decade with Pretty Woman, before closing it out with another romantic comedy hit, Runaway Bride. I love this film because of the comedic wit, which is really the glue that keeps the whole crazy story together. The ensemble cast feed off each other and give the story the small town vibe it is aiming for. The low score reviews for this film are honest and accurate, yet I just can’t help myself to this creative story about love and the fear that comes with it. Anyone who loves films from the genre will know exactly how the story ends, but the journey to get there is what always wins me over. Unlike their other epic on-screen appearance together, Gere and Roberts show that they could play bitter enemies and then lovers with such maturity.
