...feels like the work of someone who hates chick flicks and isn't all that fond of women in the first place.

Having its wedding cake and eating it too, this malevolent catfight catastrophe in chick flick lite clothing, satirizes that nuptial consumer orgy, while gorging on the excesses of matrimonial materialism.

A light-hearted comedy romp that is not meant to be taken seriously

Hudson has only herself to blame for agreeing to the script and a hairstyle that makes her look like a cross between Hilary Duff and a shrunken head.

There's more cheer to be gained from staring outside at a bleak and desolate winterscape in the twilight of a shortened day than paying good money to endure this example of cinematic offal.

While it may be tempting to write off 'Bride Wars' as harmlessly mediocre, this race to the altar also falters by trafficking in female stereotypes.

Plain and simple, this is a paycheck [for Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson] and a waste of their time, your time and mine.

This comedy about female best friends whose bond is shattered when their weddings fall on the same date occasionally displays a desire to explore the nature of friendship and love, but unfortunately such moments of insight take a backseat to increasingly

The funniest Bridezilla moments are in the trailer; if you've seen that, you've seen the movie.

You could do worse in Hollywood's dumping ground.

The resolution of the film's dilemma is not only absurd and unbelievable, but is further humiliating to the two actresses.

Bride Wars could have been your typical cartoonish, early-winter wedding comedy. Although it certainly has moments like that, it's not as wacky as most of its ilk. Guess the bad news is that it's not much of a comedy.

Sex and the City for the American Girl set, but a decent chick flick.

With a title like "Bride Wars" you'd expect some explosive comic moments of wedding sabotage and subterfuge, but instead you get a clunky formula romantic comedy, even by Hollywood standards.

Director Gary Winick has long since abandoned his cool cred from Tadpole and 13 Going on 30 and given himself over to the dark side of making glossy amusements that are about as deep as staring into a snow globe.
