Bride Wars (2009)
Critic Consensus: Bride Wars takes the already wearisome concept of battling bridezillas, and makes it thoroughly insufferable via a lazy script and wholly detestable characters.
Liv and Emma are best friends who since childhood have planned every detail of their respective weddings. At the top of their bridal "must have" list: a ceremony at New York's ultimate bridal destination, the Plaza Hotel. Now, at age 26, they're both about to get married; they're about to realize their dreams; and they're about to live happily ever after. Or maybe not... When a clerical error causes a clash in wedding dates--they're now to be married on the same date!--Liv, Emma and their lifelong friendship are put to the ultimate test. Liv, a successful lawyer who is used to getting what she wants, including the perfect job and the perfect man, won't settle for anything less than the perfect wedding she has dreamed of for years. Emma, a schoolteacher who has always been good at taking care of others, but not so much in looking after herself, discovers her inner Bridezilla and comes out swinging when her own dream wedding is imperiled. Now, the two best friends who'd do anything for each other, find themselves in a no-holds-barred, take-no-prisoners struggle that threatens to erupt into all-out war. … More

Critic Reviews for Bride Wars
You want to see Anne Hathaway in a worthy vehicle? Check out "Rachel Getting Married." You want to see Kate Hudson in a worthy vehicle?Rent a time machine.
Bride Wars will ensnare the fairer sex like an evil goddamn tractor beam and there's nothing you can do about it. If you must go see it, take a book. Or some cyanide.
Bride Wars renders its women characters as stereotypes only capable of approaching the world the way a character from a prime-time TV show might.
reptilian, hateful stuff, biologically engineered to disrespect--with maximum efficiency--the precise demographic to which it targets itself.
Audience Reviews for Bride Wars
Two bestfriends have planned their weddings their whole lives for June at the Plaza. They both get engaged at the same time and the wedding is double booked. They do everything to sabotage each other's weddings. Very funny movie and cast.
An ok if nothing special comedy as 2 life long best friends try to out do each other for their dream wedding day. Quite a good cast and it has a few funny moments as they take increasing steps to get back at each other. Otherwise quite predictable.
Hilarious! Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway thrive off each other. Brilliant!

|Marion St. Claire:||Sometimes in life there really are bonds formed that can never be broken. Sometimes you really can find that one person who will stand by you no matter what. Maybe you'll find it in a spouse and celebrate it with your dream wedding. But theres also the chance that the person you can count on for a lifetime, the person who knows you sometimes better than you know yourself, is the same person who's been standing beside you all along.|
|Emma:||[to Liv] Your wedding's gonna be huge, just like your ass at prom.|
|Marion St. Claire:||Angela, for example, will die dead.|
