Muriel's Wedding Favourite Comedy Film 23

Muriel's Wedding ****

A socially awkward, overweight, and naïve "ugly duckling" obsessed with the music of ABBA, Muriel Heslop is the target of ridicule by the more sophisticated girls she considers her friends. She also is a perpetual daydreamer who yearns for a glamorous wedding and marriage to a man who will help elevate her from her personal limitations and free her from a tedious life dominated by her demanding and often psychologically abusive father Bill, a corrupt politician who lashes out at his subservient wife Betty and their unambitious children every opportunity he gets.

What the heck - very good fun
