The whole point of a romantic comedy is the comfort of the ritual ” the familiarity of it all, as if you’re wrapping yourself in a warm, snuggly blanket of knowledge that the two attractive, charming leads will surely end up with each other in the end. The outcome is never in doubt, despite the various contrived obstacles that pop up along the way. This is especially true of “Made of Honor,” because it’s pretty much a remake of a movie you’ve already seen: 1997’s “My Best Friend’s Wedding.” The only difference is a reversal in gender roles ” so daring! This time, Patrick Dempsey plays the one who realizes he’s in love with his best friend (Michelle Monaghan), and when she announces she’s getting married, he tries to undermine the wedding from the inside. Because, you see, she’s asked him to be her “maid of honor.” The title is a pun, get it? PG-13 for sexual content and language.
Showtimes: 12:45, 3:45, 4, 6:45 and 9:45 p.m. Friday through Thursday at Skyline Cinema in Dillon.
Much of the allure here comes from the fact that we are indeed talking about a man ” a real man who has lived a life and made mistakes and experienced regret ” not some scrawny, teenage boy who received his superhero powers through a bite from a radioactive spider. No offense to Spidey, the Marvel Comics hero who’s already provided billion-dollar summer blockbuster fodder. But there’s just something more relatable about Tony Stark, even though he’s a playboy industrialist of staggering wealth and arrogance. And in the hands of Robert Downey Jr., he’s absolutely riveting. Downey may have seemed an unlikely casting choice at first, but it’s difficult to imagine any other actor in the role; he’s so quick-witted and he makes such inspired decisions with dialogue that, at times, might have seemed corny otherwise. Throughout his eclectic career he’s always been capable of both great charisma and vulnerability, and both are on display in this, the biggest movie of his life. “Iron Man” is also a blast ” the perfect start to the summer with its shiny mix of visual effects, elaborate set pieces and humor. This is also the biggest movie of director Jon Favreau’s life, and he juggles all the complicated, expensive toys deftly. Downey’s Tony is abducted by insurgents while demonstrating his weapons company’s latest missile to the U.S. military in Afghanistan. While in captivity, he’s ordered to reconstruct the missile but instead creates a suit of armor and becomes a weapon himself. 126 min.
