"Say Yes to the Dress" has nothing on the bride wannabe portrayed so in such a painstakingly honest and desperate way by Toni Collette. Add a little Abba music and you have one killer chick flick.

    Australian films often have this dark whimsy to them. With Strictly Ballroom and Priscilla: Queen of the Desert, there's a tonne of sequins, but there's often sand or tanning lotion on them... So is the tale of Muriel Hislop of Porpoise Spit, Australia, an awkward misfit of a girl, desperately trying to blend in and obsessed with two things: ABBA and getting married. It's like she's barely treading water in an over-chlorinated pool when she meets Rhonda, an old classmate, who inspires her to get out of Porpoise Spit and move to Sydney. It's a story about trying to escape your past but told in such a charmingly bittersweet manner by the astounding Toni Collette who plays Muriel and director PJ Hogan who would go on to success in Hollywood.

    Hands down the most depressing movie I've ever seen, and coming from India, I've seen quite a few believe me... This movie, criminally mis-advertised as some sort of rom-com, will pull you in a hundred directions, and simply does not offer any easy way out. All this, in a movie that features some of ABBA's frothiest hits. In all, not a movie to be missed.
