Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 03/23/1995
"...MURIEL is a crowd pleaser....[An] exuberantly funny Cinderella story..."
USA Today - 03/10/1995
"...Brassy energy and performances..."
Variety - 05/23/1994
"...[Griffiths] generates real feeling and shows impressive range..."
New York Times - 03/10/1995
"...The film's sunny effervescence will linger....[Mr. Hogan] combines humor and pathos in all his characters, keeping his film nicely off-balance in the process..."
Sight and Sound - 04/01/1995
"...An intentionally hilarious dayglo soap opera....Cogent....Affecting..."
Los Angeles Times - 03/10/1995
"...Marvelous....Made with energy, raucous good humor and noticeable wit, its ability to recognize the poignancy in its situations makes it special..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 03/17/1995
"...MURIEL'S WEDDING has a lot of big and little laughs, but also a melancholy undercurrent, which reveals itself toward the end of the film in a series of surprises and unexpected developments..."

Product Description:

A dark, occasionally caustic, comedy in which a self-pitying, ABBA-worshipping, Aussie lass looks for love in all the wrong places. Colorfully offbeat.

Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.:

Muriel's Wedding
Hysterically funny, fresh, and brimming with wit, MURIEL'S WEDDING is the comedy hit celebrated by critics nationwide! No one ever paid much attention to Muriel and her humdrum small-town life, so she and her best friend, Rhonda, decide to leave it behind and head for the big city ... where they end up having the exciting adventure of their lives! What's more, soon everyone takes notice when Muriel becomes engaged to a handsome and popular sports hero! You'll love every hilarious minute as Muriel discovers that even when it seems all her dreams are coming true, the path to the altar still has plenty of surprising twists!

Plot Synopsis:

Muriel is a young misfit adrift in a small Australian town called Porpoise Spit. She loves attending weddings just to witness two people starting new lives -- although it seems likely that Muriel herself will never have one. Finally, however, she gets fed up with being an onlooker and decides to take some action: she accepts a blank check from her mother that's supposed to start her off on a career selling makeup, and cashes it in for her parents' life savings.
Flush with mad money, she goes on a tropical vacation and then hightails it to Sydney to avoid the shame of possible jail time. There, Muriel renews her acquaintance with the vivacious Rhonda, who introduces her to new possibilities and adventures.
But Muriel still lacks one important thing: a husband. How far will she go to get one'
