BERLIN - More than two years after Paramount Pictures turned historic Berlin into the fictional village of Hale for the movie "Runaway Bride," the town continues to reap tourism benefits. "A day doesn't go by without someone coming in and asking about the movie," said Fran Murray, owner of Sassafras Station, an antiques, garden and gift shop. "If they didn't know it was filmed here, they do as soon as they get to town." And those people who come to Berlin, population 3,300, to see where the Julia Roberts-Richard Gere movie was filmed, typically spend money.

HE SAYS "Haven't we all made mistakes?" - Jilted groom John Mason on Fox News Of course, we have. We're on your side, buddy. I mean, what groom hasn't received a phone call from his fiancee saying she's been abducted to Albuquerque, N.M., and, by the way, our big fat wedding on Saturday looks very iffy? Every day in this country, brides get cold feet. They pre-purchase a Greyhound bus ticket, cut their hair, tell their fiance they're going out for a jog, place a phony 911 call, are picked up by police 1,400 miles away and then face possible criminal charges, or worse, Fox News interviews.

SHE SAYS I don't know about you, but if my fiance staged a kidnapping days before the wedding, I'd be making my own escape plans. My advice to John Mason, the Georgia man whose girlfriend chose a bus trip to Albuquerque, N.M., over a walk down the aisle, is: Be the Runaway Bride's Getaway Groom. Jennifer Wilbanks has punched your ticket to try-again-with-someone-else. Take it. This girl may have cold feet, but she certainly had a cool head while planning this headline-grabbing escapade.

Is one Julia Roberts movie a summer enough?This is just one question raised by "Runaway Bride," a frothy trifle in which Roberts sort-of-almost reprises her role in "Notting Hill," the deserved romantic comedy hit of the summer. Not that the part she plays here has much in common with the glamourpuss she played in the earlier film. But the underlying persona -- a strong, independent woman searching for commitment with just the right unlikely guy -- is exactly the same.In the Roberts Summer Sweepstakes, "Notting Hill" wins the day for charm, breezy humor and decadent escapism, even though "Runaway Bride" certainly has its moments in all three departments.

Carmen Austin, owner of Carmen's of Roland Park Family Cuts, is ready for her 15 minutes of fame.Come October, she said, Julia Roberts and Richard Gere -- along with a posse of movie production people -- might just descend on her Cold Spring Lane barber shop to shoot part of a movie now titled "Runaway Bride." The movie is being produced by Lakeshore Entertainment and distributed by Paramount Pictures.Austin said a Paramount representative told her that Paramount singled out her shop because it has an "antique" feel, due in large part to an old-fashioned barber's pole spinning out front.

GOOD MORNING, daaahhhlings, and happy birthday, Julia Roberts. The actress, in Maryland for the filming of Lakeshore/Paramount's "The Runaway Bride," turns 31 today. (Only 31!)Is this woman livin' it or what? Her boyfriend is Benjamin Bratt of "Law & Order." She's making a movie here with the hunky Richard Gere - and getting paid more than $17 million to do it, one of the few actresses to command that kind of dough.
