my best friends wedding

It's a classic romantic comedy that never gets old.

My Best Friends Wedding might be 22 years old this year, but it's aging like a fine wine – thanks to its magnetic cast of Julia Roberts, Dermot Mulroney, Cameron Diaz, and Rupert Everett.

There are so many memorable moments in this flick – from the opening credits brides-and-bridesmaids song against a hot pink background to the hysterical Dionne Warwick sing-a-along in the restaurant courtesy of Rupert Everett's George.

But there is one stand-out scene that Cameron Diaz nails – yes, the karaoke bar where Roberts' Jools takes an unsuspecting Kim (Diaz) knowing that she can't sing a note.

Cameron proceeds to stumble her way through what begins as an excruciating rendition of I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself.

However, it's a case of she's-so-bad-she's good and her pitchy singing soon becomes endearing, with the whole bar cheering her along.

Basically, it's GAS.

So how did the whole thing play out behind the scenes?

The cast reunited to cover Entertainment Weekly's special Rom-Com issue and Cameron revealed what filming the now-iconic scene was like.

The scene was shot live so Cameron was singing in front of a whole crowd – and she was just as nervous as her on-screen character.

The director P.J. Hogan said, ''Cameron just botched her way through the song. And the worse she got, the better the scene was. But then Cameron was so game that the applause started to become real.”

Cameron was terrified of the scene but just like how it pans out on-screen, Dermot helped her through it.

She said, ''I was terrified to do that scene, for real. I allowed the true terror of singing in front of people to be alive in me.''

She continued, ''I wanted to run and hide, and Dermot kept me there. He said, 'You can do it, you can do it.' In the scene I’m just staring at him the whole time because he’s looking at me like, 'You’re okay. You’re not gonna die.' And I was like, 'But I’m dying.'"

We adore the scene and think that Cameron couldn't have done it better – now, does this give us an excuse to go and watch it again?



The co-stars of one of our favourite movies have reunited for the first time in decades.

My Best Friend’s Wedding stars Julia Robert and Dermot Mulroney are working together again on screen.

We cannot believe it has been over 20 years since the romantic comedy’s debut in 1997.

The actress shared a selfie of her and her former co-star on her Instagram with the caption: “Yep” followed by an emoji of two people holding hands.

The duo are seriously the cutest couple ever!

In the film, the actors played Julianne Potter and Michael O’Neal, two long-time friends that had made a wedding pact.

If both were still single by the age of 28, they would marry each other. However, when Julianne learns that Michael is getting married days before her birthday, things become complicated.

The heartwarming and hilarious tale is full of romance and drama, instantly becoming a classic 1990’s rom-com.

Now, the lovebirds are reunited once more, but not for a magical love story. In their upcoming TV series Homecoming, they work as part of a military rehabilitation program.

The thrilling drama follows Heidi (played by Julia) during her work at Homecoming, a facility designed to help soldiers transition back into civilian life.

The pair seem happier than ever to be reunited on screen, and we cannot wait for their new show’s debut.

It will be out exclusively on Amazon Prime Video on November 2nd.


My Best Friend's Wedding, starring Julia Roberts and Cameron Diaz, has remained one of our favourite romantic comedy since its 1997 debut.

And now, ABC is giving the movie new life with a half-hour television show.

The TV network announced yesterday that Ron Bass, the movie's original writer, will write the show's script.

He's also joined by other original makers, including executive producers Jerry Zucker and Janet Zucker, as well as Mike Menchel – so we know the beloved rom-com will be done justice.

The Hollywood Reporter said that the new show will act as a sequel, focusing on Julianne Potter (Julia Roberts) and her life in New York City with her friend George (played by Rupert Everett).

As a quick refresher, the movie revolved around Julianne, whose best friend Michael (played by Dermot Mulroney) is getting married weeks before her 28th birthday, the age the two promised in college they'd marry each other if either weren't already taken. Her next (not very) logical step is to try to sabotage the wedding and confess her love to Michael.

While there's no word yet on when the show will air, we hope I Say A Little Prayer For You might just make the series opening sequence.
