TCP: Runaway Bride

Runaway Bride is a 1999 romantic comedy film starring Julia Roberts (as Maggie Carpenter) and Richard Gere (as Ike Graham.)

Maggie is a young attractive woman who has had numerous unsuccessful relationships and was tagged as Runaway Bride leaving three men waiting for her in the church.

When Ike Graham wrote one article about Maggie, he was fired out because one of Maggies' exes provided him wrong facts out of revenge. Ike did not verify the source so to get back his job, he wrote an in-depth article about Maggie following her to Maryland. Maggie was then on her fourth attempt to become married again. Her groom to be is Bob (played by Christopher Meloni) Imagine how funny it was during the wedding rehearsal when Ike took Bob's place and practice "kiss" for the wedding. The story ends not as runaway bride for Maggie but as a happy bride in a private ceremony.

I can't stop laughing at Julia's sneakers underneath her wedding gown. This was a very good wedding movie. I got something for you on my TCP post today as well.

I loved the quotes in this movie and I think Ike's version of the perfect proposal is indeed perfect!

Gere's and Roberts' on-screen chemistry is so strong, it made this movie that much more delicious. ;)

this is a very memorable movie for me because this was our first anniversarry movie when we were still going out as a couple. it was also the premiere night making it more special. still got some part of the ticket with me but left it somewhere in our home sa pinas.

i loved this movie too mommy nuts. reminds us that getting into a relationship and marriage doesn't mean that we have to lose our individuality but to complement our partner's strengths and weaknesses. This goes true for the men too.

thanks for joining us this week dear. next week, we will feature Spies & COnspiracy movies. till then, take care and have a great weekend!
