Plot: Tom Bailey (Patrick Dempsey) is in love with his best friend Claire (Michelle Monaghan). But Tom has a fear of commitment and refuses to admit the obvious–he should propose to Claire before she finds a less procrastinating suitor. When Colin (Kevin McKidd), a rich Scotsman sweeps Claire off her feet and asks for her handin marriage, Tom must witness her unquestioned happiness up close and personal–because she’schosen him to be her Maid Of Honor.
Story sounds familair? It’s My Best Friend’s Wedding in reverse, this time the best friend is male, and alpha male at that. I thought it had a very thin plot, that borders along the line of silliness and slapstick, only saved by the actors screen presence and good chemistry. Patrick Dempsey and Michelle Monaghan really looked cute together, and its refreshing to see Kevin McKidd in a different role that kinda suits him with his Socttish accent. Nice to see the scenic Highlands once more including the Isle of Skye and the village of Portree which is why I gave it a 3.
Made of Honor: 3/5
