Critic Reviews of "Muriel's Wedding"Chicago ReaderApril 09, 2012
This movie only shows true tact and understanding when it comes to flattering the audience; everyone on-screen is strictly up for grabs.Entertainment WeeklySeptember 07, 2011
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.VarietyMarch 26, 2009
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.Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
An engaging, funny and sometimes surprisingly tough romantic comedy.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
[A] gleeful, gaudy tribute to one ungainly misfit and her determination.San Francisco ChronicleJune 18, 2002
There's poignant drama in this brash, sometimes overstated film, and Muriel's transformation is truly touching.Empire MagazineApril 09, 2012
There's a high enough feelgood factor here to compensate for the detours off the comedy highway.Film4April 09, 2012
Another kooky Australian movie this may be, but director Hogan and his cast sustain a strange melancholic undercurrent.Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)March 29, 2004
Enjoyable little film that nonetheless already feels overrated.Spirituality and PracticeJuly 19, 2003
Soulfully explores a young woman's journey to transformationMovieholeApril 27, 2003
One of the finest Australian films of all time. The laughs don't stop.Juicy CerebellumApril 14, 2003
So overrated. 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding' for the nineties.
