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"

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

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

In the end, the movie owes its mild success to Anne Hathaway, who makes it watchable.

All in all, it's a good girlfriend movie and a decent date-night picture.

Not knowing what to expect, the battle between Hudson and Hatheway was fun to watch but I would not waste money to see it in theatres. Wait for the rental!

As Hathaway and Hudson plan their perfect days and plot to destroy each other, like a gown-clad version of one of those old Mad magazine Spy vs. Spy comics, Bride Wars pauses to ask the very important question of what happens when you focus on your weddin

Imaginative it ain't but, in all, it's an agreeably girly accompaniment to a box of Maltesers. You might also want to take along some earplugs.

Watchable comedy, enlivened by strong performances from Hudson and Hathaway and a decent script that isn't afraid to make the central friendship the most important relationship in the movie.

A lively tone and sharp performances help bring this rather thin comedy to life

nothing shocking, nothing original, nothing amazing and nothing special, but you can have a few laughs along the way.

They're real, dimensional humans, not wedding-obsessed fembots.

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]
