TCP - Wedding Movies "Runaway Bride"



It's Tuesday Couch Potatoes hosted by Kikamz and this week we will features movies about Wedding. Now, we all love the Pretty Woman team up of Richard Gere and Julia Roberts that up until now I am still watching that movie if it shown on some regular channels on TV. Here comes another romantic comedy team up of Richard gere and Julia again the "Runaway Birde".

Runaway Bride is a 1999 romantic comedy film starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere and directed by Garry Marshall. While not as successful at the box office as the previous movie the three made together (also guest starring Héctor Elizondo), Pretty Woman, the movie was, nevertheless, a hit among moviegoers. It eventually earned over $152 million at the U.S. box office.

Other didn't really love the movie but for me it was one of the best movie of Julia Roberts and Richard Gere. They are both great actors and have a very good chemistry. I watched this movie many times now and I am still watching it again on TV. It is so romantic and not boring. Others find the movie gay and impossible but for me its just a movie and it entertain me from the very beginning till the ending. Well, those who haven't seen the movie yet, try watching it Im sure you will smile and giggles.
Here is a synopsis of the movie I got from wikipedia.
Synopsis
Julia Roberts plays Maggie Carpenter, a spirited and attractive young woman who has had a number of unsuccessful relationships. Maggie, afraid of being married, has left a trail of boyfriends. Indeed, she's left three men waiting for her in church on their wedding day (all of which are caught on tape), receiving tabloid fame and the dubious nickname "Runaway Bride". Meanwhile, in New York, reporter Ike Graham (played by Richard Gere), writes a column about her that contains several factual errors, supplied to him by one of Maggie's jilted exes for revenge. He's fired for not verifying his source and then decides to write an in-depth article about Maggie in a bid to get his job back. He travels to Hale, Maryland, where he finds her living with her family and on her fourth attempt to become married. The fourth groom-to-be is Bob (played by Christopher Meloni), a football coach at the local high school who treats Maggie like a mental patient. After Ike forces Maggie to face her fears, the two find themselves becoming more and more attracted to each other. In the meantime, Maggie is still set to marry Bob, and so does her best to ignore her feelings for Ike. The situation in Ike's corner is similar; being divorced once himself, he's looking for love as well, but knowing that Maggie must make the decision to be with him over Bob, he does his best to stay out of it. In the midst of the wedding rehearsal, Bob stands in for the priest, and asks Ike to stand in his place as the groom. This proves to be a mistake, when Ike and Maggie "practice" the kiss right in front of Bob. As a result, Bob punches Ike in the face before storming out of the church. Soon after, Ike and Maggie agree to marry since the wedding is already set to take place. But on the day of the wedding, Maggie gets cold feet, and leaves Ike, too, standing at the altar. As she rides away on a FedEx truck, Ike runs after her, but can't catch up. Later, when Ike returns to New York, he finds Maggie making friends with his cat, Italics. Maggie then explains why she's been running and "turns in" her running shoes just before proposing to Ike. The two are married in a private ceremony outside, on a hill. In the end, they are shown riding away on horseback.


And Oh oh watch also the "Bride Wars" you will love it. Imagine just because of their dream to have a grand wedding at the grand hotels these two best friends turns into a monster and become best enemy. I had so much fun watching this movie countless of time. I'm a huge fan of Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway. These two great actress have a good chemistry and both pretty right. So watch it guys.

I loved them more in Pretty Woman. ;) Julia has the right combination of strength and vulnerability that makes her so suitable for these roles. And her on-screen with Richard Gere is so strong. I wish they'd make another one, showing mature love. It would be quite something to watch.
Please see mine here.
