Julianne is upset that Michael will marry someone so wrong for him, and someone he has known for such a short period of time. She realizes that she is in love with Michael, and heads to Chicago, intent on sabotaging his wedding. Soon after arriving she meets Kimberly, who asks her to be the maid of honor. This sets off a comical scenario in which Julianne must pretend to be the dutiful maid of honor while secretly scheming ways to prevent the wedding from happening. She engages in petty sabotage — for example, taking Kimberly and Michael to a karaoke bar after discovering that Kimberly is a terrible singer — and later asks her gay friend George to pretend they are engaged, hoping to make Michael jealous.
When these tactics fail, George convinces Julianne to do the obvious: tell Michael she is in love with him. On the morning of the wedding, Julianne confesses her love to Michael, asks him to marry her instead, and kisses him passionately. Kimberly witnesses this and runs off; Michael chases her, and Julianne chases him unsuccessfully. Julianne finally accepts that she has lost Michael to Kimberly, so she apologizes to her. Michael marries Kimberly, and Julianne wishes them well, consoled by her platonic friend George.
I love every Julia Roberts' films. She's an epitome of a hopeless romantic woman, dying to meet her man, and will do anything no matter what it takes.
Luckily, I don't have a guy for a bestfriend. 'Coz for sure, I won't be able to help myself but to fall in love with him. Sabi nga, friends can be lovers. So, instead of me playing as his cupid and find him a partner, I'd rather might imagine myself as his partner. Favorable on my end but not on his. It doesn't even count no matter how long I know this guy if he's not feeling the same way as I am to him. Maybe we're just destined to be friends, friends lang.. no more, no less!
It's also not right to expect a lot on someone neither assume much if that can't be even reciprocated. You'll end up hurting yourself more than you can imagine. Just let the closeness be as it is. Just let your feelings grow and simply nurture it in your heart. Then stop.
I know it ain't that easy just to give it up. Just to stop. You've invested much. And you're yearning for a return of your investment. Be open to the possibilities that we can't have it all. You give much and get nothing in return. You risk a lot; still, you fail. You might say, Life is so unfair. It is.
But life never fails to leave us with choices. It all depends on us on what to choose. If we take the risk, we must be aware of the consequences. Just like taking an examination, it's either we pass or we fail. There's nothing in between. You only have to make a stand on your choice. Be firm. Act responsibly. Learn something from it.
Then take the risk again 'til you achieve what you want in life.. That's how life goes. It goes on and on. Nonstop. Never ending.
