      Socially awkward Muriel Heslop (Toni Collette) wants nothing more than to get married. Unfortunately, due to her oppressive politician father (Bill Hunter), Muriel has never even been on a date. Ostracized by her more socially adept friends, Muriel runs into fellow outcast Rhonda Epinstalk (Rachel Griffiths), and the two move from their small Australian town to the big city of Sydney, where Muriel changes her name and begins the arduous task of redesigning her life to match her fantasies.

        This is a film that I have seen countless time and I always enjoy it. From the superb ABBA soundtrack to the acting of the main characters. This is one rags to riches story that does not disappoint. It is not a typical rags to riches story though and a lot of people can and will identify with Muriel in many ways. The star is undoubtedly Toni Collette as this was the film that turned her in to star and rightly so from this performance. A nice, touching movie that really makes you think and directed by none other than Crocodile Dundee star Paul Hogan no less.

        A rocking chick flick with bouts of self-esteem issues, this Australian comedy features the original talents of Toni Colette and Rachel Griffiths. Colette's character of Muriel is not entirely original, as the derivation is of an awkward girl with fantasies of a fulfilled life alongside a man, depressed because she isn't the Barbie doll society calls her to be. Still, with an ABBA obsession and a penchant for getting into trouble with the police, Muriel is portrayed as a kooky and quirky aside to the usual dark portrayals that lead to disaster. Griffiths is already a self-fulfilled person, sex inclined and not dubious to the tall tales Muriel spins as she reinvents herself as Mariel, living in Sydney and burning bridges to her hometown of Porpoise Spit and the family that not only raised her, but ends up duped in her quest to find herself. The film grows dark, Muriel's family turning into a conflicted bunch on the brink of eruption, her wish fulfillment morphing into a life of joyless solitude, without intimacy or friendship. Though very bland on premise and plot, Muriel stills keeps some laughs rolling as well as the punches.
