The Happy Couple: Maggie (Julia Roberts) and a number of hopefuls

The Hanger On: Eisenhower “Ike” Grant (Richard Gere)

What’s the situation? Small-town girl Maggie has run away from the altar on three occasions already and is now set to marry fiancé number four. Big-city reporter Ike comes down to cover the nuptials, and finds himself attracted to Maggie. Oh noes! They practice kissing in front of her fiancé, realise they’re in love and Ike steps in for the wedding – only for Maggie to do another runner. Time passes, she gets herself sorted out and realises that she’s in love with him after all yada yada. It’s something to do with how she likes her eggs in the morning, apparently, but the film stumbles in never quite explaining why she’s such an awful person.

Worst moment: The happy ending. How has anyone earned that?

Moral of the story? Lightning doesn’t strike twice. Pretty Woman was yer lot.

Wedding checklist:

Does the wedding go ahead?
(and also yes)
Does true love triumph?
Is there a run for love at the end?
Comic relief from elderly relatives?
Realism score 7/10

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
