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]

Enough to make one yearn for the comparatively rich complexity of Home Improvement.

It's a movie that mistakenly believes that we should want to like these people.

There are no pleasant surprises in this partly-Boston-shot Gary Winick film.

The movie shows that life can be messy and how unrealistic it is to expect everything to be perfect on "the biggest day in a girl's life"

the leading ladies don't provide any memorable moments other than the obvious visual gag of a cat fight between two women in wedding dresses.

If Bride Wars is any indication of what's to come, please let last year linger a little longer.

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.

Often unimaginative, asinine and bland, even if you're willing to check your brain at the door and suspend your disbelief for 90 minutes.

Shrill and shallow, 'Bride Wars' would make anyone wince at the thought of matrimony.

A paean to friendship and conspicuous consumption that is just simply wrong. On a number of levels.

Bride Wars makes Sex and the City seem like Jane Austen.

There's a good deal of potential squandered in this strained comedy, which suffers from lazy writing, miscalculated acting, perfunctory directing and general bad timing.

[A] funny, self-consciously frothy piece of good-natured escapism.

Eighty-eight minutes and 14 seconds of pure, unadulterated piffle.
