Made of Honor Reviews

  • Made of Honor is a nice cookie-cutter comedy, no more and no less, but Dempsey, with his relaxed charm, and Monaghan, with her soft and peachy sensual spark, rise to the challenge of making friendship look like the wellspring of true love.

    Owen Gleiberman — Entertainment Weekly

  • The romantic comedy Made of Honor adds tart satirical flavors to a cotton-candy formula without sabotaging the sugar rush.

    Stephen Holden — New York Times

  • A film to leave at the altar.

    Peter Bradshaw — Guardian [UK]

  • Though he has the requisite charm for a romantic comedy, McDreamy has picked a pretty nightmarish project to showcase his talents.

    Claudia Puig — USA Today

  • At its best, a romantic comedy celebrates one of humanity's greatest yearnings: to give and to find the love of a lifetime. At its worst (and this is where Made of Honor comes in), it can leave you with a bad taste, not just in your mouth but in your soul

    Desson Thomson — Washington Post

  • Made of Honor is a retread -- My Best Friend's Wedding with the genders reversed and the brains removed. Chick flicks this calculated should come with enough Scorpion Bowls to numb the pain.

    Ty Burr — Boston Globe

  • Director Paul Weiland and the three (!) screenwriters it took to boil down thousands of bad movies into 101 minutes haven't provided this one with a single original thought.

    Robert Wilonsky — Village Voice

  • The cinematic equivalent of a cookie-cutter wedding, Made of Honor ultimately feels a little depressing. Shouldn't any major event, from getting married to making a movie, inspire some hint of passion and creativity?

    Elizabeth Weitzman — New York Daily News

  • Dempsey and Monaghan -- and the rest of the cast, for that matter -- give it their all, but it just isn't enough to lift this formulaic nonsense out of the stew of mediocrity in which it merely simmers from start to finish.

    Bill Zwecker — Chicago Sun-Times

  • Certain formula-driven romantic comedies reach a point where the audience realizes it won't be much fun watching the main character get his way. Nor will it be much fun watching him get his comeuppance. This is not where you want your audience.

    Michael Phillips — Chicago Tribune

  • Patrick Dempsey and Michelle Monaghan make an agreeable pair in this above-average comedy, another go-round for the reliable premise of longtime pals awakening to each other romantically.

    J. R. Jones — Chicago Reader

  • Made of Honor is the kind of formulaic fare -- there's even that turn-the-car-around-and-get-me-back-to-the-church moment -- that depends on the wit of the script and the spark of its stars. In those departments, the film is just middling.

    Steven Rea — Philadelphia Inquirer

  • Does anyone ever demand a refund for a romantic comedy that looks awfully familiar? Let's hope not, or the folks behind Made of Honor will have to do some serious reimbursement.

    Colin Covert — Minneapolis Star Tribune

  • An unabashed piece of Hollywood fluff garnished with spry slapstick and appealing actors.

    Tom Long — Detroit News

  • How you feel about Made of Honor depends on how you feel about Dempsey. If you like Grey's Dr. McDreamy, you'll like Tom and the movie. If not? There are plenty of other nondescript romantic comedies out there from which to choose.

    Bill Goodykoontz — Arizona Republic

  • Like a shopworn wedding gown disguised with a new sash, Made of Honor feels recycled from top to bottom. That's because it's essentially a gender-swapped version of My Best Friend's Wedding.

    Lael Loewenstein — Variety

  • There was a certain amount of suspense in the air at the screening of Made of Honor: Would Tom and Hannah realize they're perfect for each other at the altar, or would I burn down the theater first?

    Kyle Smith — New York Post

  • Made of Honor earns enough goodwill in a long, clever and sexy opening act to carry it through to an ending that we don't necessarily guess because it seems to lack enough of that last word in the title: 'honor.'

    Roger Moore — Orlando Sentinel

  • Somewhere in the shades of Hollywood, the ghost of Cary Grant is shaking his head.

    Philip Marchand — Toronto Star

  • Certainly ain't nothing to query about the tired premise, whose cinematic block we've been around and around and around since Garbo first talked.

    Rick Groen — Globe and Mail
