        Richard Gere and Julia Roberts? Again??? No way, it was a pointless romantic comedy that shows off the stupidity of our screenwriter but shows off the acting ability of both our leading stars. This long and dreadful tale of a woman who has a phobia of getting married was random as hell, only watch it if you have spare time and the paint is dry.

        Maggie (Julia Roberts) is the bride who is so afraid of commitment that she literally runs out on her three grooms. Ike (Richard Gere) is the reporter who writes an article on the bride that it angers her. Upon reading the damaging article, which portrays her as a heartless man-eater, Maggie complains to the newspaper, which promptly fires Ike. Afterwards, he pursues her for a personal interview and falls in love with her in the process. Hector Elizondo (also of "Pretty Woman") co-stars along with Joan Cusack and Rita Wilson. Pretty predictable stuff here! I wanted to see more soul-searching by Maggie about her fears regarding commitment.

        I don't know why but this movie never caught my interest. I went to the cinema to watch it with some friends and this has been the only movie I've ever fallen asleep to in the cinema. I found it boring and very predictable. I didn't care much for this movie.

        Garry Marshall directs Richard Gere and Julia Roberts in an attempt to capture the magic of thier first pairing which was 1990's Pretty Woman. Amazingly the chemistry between Roberts and Gere was still there and the film was very enjoyable, but lighting usually doesn't strike twice and although Runaway Bride is a very well made and acted film it falls short of being anything but a mediocre romance.
