    This movie only shows true tact and understanding when it comes to flattering the audience; everyone on-screen is strictly up for grabs.

    The trouble with the movie is that there's nothing to Muriel but her false dreams: We never quite glimpse the woman they're hiding.

    Most of the action is played for broad laughs, and Hogan demonstrates the ability to generate them, even if the humor is base and often cruel, making fun of people's looks and ineptitude.

    An engaging, funny and sometimes surprisingly tough romantic comedy.

    [A] gleeful, gaudy tribute to one ungainly misfit and her determination.

    There's poignant drama in this brash, sometimes overstated film, and Muriel's transformation is truly touching.

    Name user

    It's a bright, buoyant comedy about a very sad young woman -- and, regrettably, the mix just doesn't work.

    Name user

    Muriel's Wedding isn't a perfect comedy, tragedy, or drama, but it contains enough original elements of each to make it worth a look.

    The film's good heart keeps it from ever making fun of Muriel, although there are moments that must have been tempting.
