A highly anticipated romantic comedy Made of Honour is yet another paled down version of My Best Friend’s Wedding.
The charming Patrick Dempsey from Grey’s Anatomy plays Tom the best friend who is asked to be the ‘maid’ of honour (MOH) of Hannah (Michelle Monaghan). Little does Hannah know that this playboy has fallen in love with her and wants to stop the wedding.
The story screams nothing original and looks like a jigsaw of several other similar movies. Patrick may be good looking, but he’s no Julia Roberts.
During the media screening, the distributors actually staged an actual wedding ceremony and the MOH Alvin was a male best friend. How many guys would actually do this for their girl friends?
Alvin said that he was doing purely out of friendship, and only after numerous persuasions by the bride. He certainly looked very awkward as he was holding up the bride’s gown.
I had the ‘privilege’ to be in a good friend’s ‘jie mei’ team once. Certainly embarrassing! Especially when we had to be colour coordinated (fortunately not pink). I would not have done it if she hasn’t been a friend since secondary one, and there was another guy in the same fate with me.

Well, the benefit is the bride ‘sisters’ get all the fun, and not do pushups and drink bitter tea. But even as people become more open-minded, a guy standing in the middle of girls during the wedding may get more attention than the whole group of them.
Before you scream “gay”, he is most likely a very good friend of the bride. So ladies, think twice before you ask your best guy friend to be your MOH. He is certainly not the best person to fuss over your makeup, coordinate your China, and adjust your straps, even if the groom doesn’t mind at all.

Made of Honour – Certainly no My Best Friend’s Wedding
