The Wedding Planner
The Happy Couple: Fran (Bridgette Wilson) and Steve (Matthew McConaughey)
The Hanger On: Mary (Jennifer Lopez)
What’s the situation? Wedding planner Mary lands a big account with the wedding of entrepreneur Fran, and meets an interesting man called Steve, with whom she goes to eat M&Ms and watch classic films outdoors, so all seems rosy. Only it turns out her interesting man is the groom, who Fran calls Eddie, and she now has to plan a wedding for him. Meanwhile, her dad is trying to set her up with some totally gorgeous guy – like, drag! All seems lost, in a variety of gorgeous locales around San Francisco, while she’s forced into Steve’s company during Fran’s business-enforced absence. Only where there’s a wedding comedy there’s a happy ending, so Fran and Steve amicably break it off and Mary doesn’t marry the hot Italian and everyone lives to eat M&Ms and watch classic films outdoors ever after.
Worst moment: The explanation that you should only eat brown M&Ms because chocolates already brown and they must therefore have fewer additives. It makes no sense, people!
Moral of the story? If someone really loves you, they’ll take you to see classic films outdoors. Er. Also, be sure you’re getting married for the right reasons.
