Critics Reviews

The New York Times
Muriel's Wedding runs into trouble when it looks for poignancy too openly, working better at giddy moments than in its occasional sad ones. Most of the time, Mr. Hogan keeps his story light and surprising.
Full review
by: Elvis Mitchell
Variety
Most of the action is played for broad laughs, and Hogan demonstrates the ability to generate them, even if the humor is very base and often cruel, making fun of people's looks and ineptitude.

Sad
This quirky movie made me a bit sad - to think that there are people out there like Muriel who are desperate for love but can't seem to find it. A thoughtful movie.
