Bride Wars

Critics Consensus

Bride Wars takes the already wearisome concept of battling bridezillas, and makes it thoroughly insufferable via a lazy script and wholly detestable characters.

Movie Info

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.

    The critic consensus says it all.

    Really dumb and juvenile, didn't have any funny scenes.

    Chick flicks get a lot of slack for mostly the right reasons but sometimes they really are there to simply entertain, no matter how ridiculous the plot might be (or how above chick flicks you think you are). As in the case of "Bride Wars," each minute was so absurd and forseeable, yet there was an appeal to it that came, I would say, mostly from the leads, Kate Hudson and Anna Hathaway. Even with the usual screaming laughter or forlorn moments, the arguing and make-up routine, and the happily-ever-after, "Bride Wars" served as amusing entertainment.

    Bride Wars has no laughs, no charms and no likeable enough characters to redeem itself from failing both itself and its viewers.
