Bride Wars (2009)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

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.

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...

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 makes Sex and the City seem like Jane Austen.

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.

It's like the Whack-a-Mole of everything reasonable people hate about so-called 'chick flicks.' [Blu-ray]

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.

I think the reason I dislike this film so much is because it is so awful but the fact that I'm currently planning my own wedding might have helped. Vacuous people being nasty to each other for 90 mins with no real pay off, not my idea of a great film.

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.
