Ani DiFranco steals the show with her ace rendition of Dusty Springfield's "Wishin' and Hopin'." But DiFranco was playing the lyrics for smirks, which made it hard to wrap yourself up in the performance. Elsewhere, you get Mary-Chapin Carpenter covering "I'll Never Fall in Love Again," a version of "What the World Needs Now Is Love" by Jackie DeShannon; Diana King (of "Stir It Up" fame) doing a lite-reggae version of "I Say a Little Prayer," and a Tony Bennett moment. Burt Bacharach's songs are all over this CD, which is good. But aside from DiFranco and Bennett, many of the artists turned loose to sing them could've been better deployed. Overall, rather slight. --Gavin McNett (Amazon.com)

"I only noticed this cd after one of my friends told me about it, but I'm glad that she did, because this cd is definitely worth it. My personal favorite song on the cd is "Say A Little Prayer For You", the cast version. Though it isn't much like the movie version (which was a lot better, I think due to the way it was performed), its a great song, and even funnier to listen to with this version. The reggae version is pretty good too. I also enjoyed "Wishin and Hoping", which is just a nice song. However, I think to understand what the meaning of the songs are (to this soundtrack), you need to see the movie, so I recommend that you see the movie, and then take the time to appreciate the soundtrack."
Good Movie, Good Soundtrack!

"This album I got for one reason, well really two reasons but the one most important reason was because at the end of My Best Friend's Wedding, one of Julia Robert's best films in my opinion, I heard Amanda Marshall's song I'll Be Okay and I was blown away. I loved the song, it was so powerful and yet so honest.
That song was enough to buy this album alone for me but I also bought it because of Jann Arden's song You Don't Know Me, which was to me the second best song on here and very beautiful. Amanda Marshall and Jann Arden to me are the stars on this album, but good runners up are:
- Ani DiFranco's cute song Wishing and Hoping
- And the very lovely song by Nicky Holland I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself,
- Diana King sings a good song I Say A Little Prayer
- And the Exciters have a very strong and fast song that's fun to hear,
- And so is the fun song by Jimmy Soul If You Wanna Be Happy.
- Sophie Zelmani has a good song on here called Always You. I found myself liking this song.
So overall I think this album is very good, but the two songs that stand out the most, and that I listen to the most, are Amanda Marshall and Jann Arden's two songs and the whole reason I bought the soundtrack. I recommend the c.d. definitely. It has cute, sometimes funny, and also very touching songs on here. One of the best sountracks put out."
