Muriel’s Wedding is P.J. Hogan’s film debut. A humorous emancipation story of an unemployed woman who evolves from a dreamer into a self sustaining successful woman. An amusing comedy that’s funny, silly, angry and serious.

Jonathan Rosenbaum This movie only shows true tact and understanding when it comes to flattering the audience; everyone on-screen is strictly up for grabs.
Todd McCarthy 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.
Geoff Andrew An engaging, funny and sometimes surprisingly tough romantic comedy.
Hal Hinson It's a bright, buoyant comedy about a very sad young woman -- and, regrettably, the mix just doesn't work.
