Runaway Bride (1999)

RUNAWAY BRIDE is the painlessly pleasant, predictably perfunctory 
re-pairing of PRETTY WOMAN players Richard Gere and Julia Roberts, 
plus original director Garry Marshall.  Before I left at the 30-
minute mark, bored, I noticed three things:  Gere's New Yawker ac-
cent appears in some scenes and not in others, his character is a 
"shock columnist" for a national newspaper that doesn't have one 
in real-life, and the videotape footage of Robert's character's 
previous weddings looks like it was shot with a full film crew in-
stead of a single, small-town-guy-with-camera.  Not that the pack-
ed Friday afternoon audi-ence appeared to mind...  With Joan Cu-
sack, Hector Elizondo, Rita Wilson, and Laurie Metcalf.  Sara Par-
riott, Josann McGibbon, and Audrey Wells are credited with the 
screenplay.  (Rated "PG"/115 min.)

Grade: W/O
