In Made of Honor, Patrick Dempsey plays a conveniently rich and willfully single serial fornicator slowly but surely domesticated by his unspoken love for longtime BFF Hannah (Michelle Monaghan). She's on her way to Scotland to marry Mr. Right Now because Mr. Right is too chicken­shit to say boo before her "I do." Which, come to think of it, sums up not only this movie but also more or less half the films in which Dempsey starred between 1987 and 2003, when he was scheduled to headline a Fox TV series based on the film About a Boy with Dempsey in the Hugh Grant role of the conveniently rich and willfully single serial fornicator slowly but surely domesticated by his blah blah blah. And then, of course, there's the My Best Friend's Wedding connection, only the filmmakers and McDreamy have been so upfront about the resemblance between their offering and 1997's threesome that to acknowledge any further similarities would be playing right into their grubby paws. Director Paul Weiland and the three screenwriters it took to boil down dozens of bad movies to 101 minutes haven't provided this one with a single original thought; it should entertain those still getting adjusted to the idea of talkies.
