Starring: Patrick Dempsey, Michelle Monaghan, Kevin McKidd
Can men and women be just friends?
Its the age old question that rom-coms are obsessed with asking.
Made of Honor centers around a bachelor named Tom (Dempsey) and his best friend a woman he met in college named Hannah (Monaghan). Tom is the kind of guy that goes through a lot of women, who is on the road to being just like his father (Sydney Pollack) with multiple marriages. It isn't until Hannah leaves for a business trip to Scotland that he realizes what they have could be what he has been looking for.
Unfortunately for Tom, when Hannah returns with a fiance Colin after 6 weeks it becomes complicated. Colin, (McKidd) is the archetype Scottish bachelor, who is Tom's competition in more ways than one. Tom agrees to be Hannah's maid of honor, but of course, things don't go as planned when he sees that Colin is not what he appears to be.
McKidd is brilliant in his portrayal of Colin, and seems the perfect man to sweep a girl like Hannah off her feet but like all romantic comedies, it isn't that easy. There are several twists and turns in the film and humor especially when the wedding party arrives in Scotland, shenanigans ensue, and walls that were once up become transparent. Will it be too late for Tom and Hannah? Is Colin really the perfect man? If you love Scotland you will especially love the film as the cinematography in Scotland is truly breathtaking. Fans of Grey's Anatomy will also love this film as it is the first time Dempsey and McKidd work together before McKidd arrives on Greys Anatomy.
All in all, Made of Honour is a great date movie and I highly recommend it. For McKidd fans celebrating Valentine's Day it is a must!
