The Modern Wedding Comedy Guide | Muriel’s Wedding
Muriel’s Wedding

The Happy Couple: Muriel (Toni Collette) and David (Daniel Lapaine)

The Hanger On: Rhonda (Rachel Griffiths)

What’s the situation? Muriel (“Mariel”) Heslop thinks she’s about to fulfill the dream of a lifetime when she agrees to an arranged marriage with South African swimmer, David van Arckle. It’s a chance to escape her horrible dad and walk down the aisle to her beloved ABBA dressed like a fairytale bride. Unfortunately, her hubby-to-be wants her for her visa, not her heart – or her heart-shaped tiara – as her best pal Rhonda has warned her.

Worst moment: As wedding vows go, it should not be difficult to spot the difference between “Yeah, okay… why not?,” and a declaration of undying love.

Moral of the story? First dances are fun and cakes are nice and all, but you should really find the right person before you start planning your wedding.

Wedding checklist:

Does the wedding go ahead?
Does true love triumph?
Is there a run for love at the end?
Comic relief from elderly relatives?
Realism score 6/10

I would love to hear some opinions about The Accidental Husband. The film with morals so twisted, I could barely watch it without smashing the TV up. More
