Can you get any more chick-flick than a movie about two BFFs getting married on the same day? And I do mean “chick flick” in a derogatory way.... More
If you've ever seen Bridezillas on TV you'll have an idea of what you're in for. The twist is that instead of being obsessed with the big day being “all about me” these two brides-from-hell – Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway, giving all brides a bad name - are “all about her” as they compete to destroy each other's wedding. The sitcom-ish premise that both their dream nuptials are accidentally booked on the same day at the same hotel and neither will change the date or venue wears thin long before we reach the reception. The idea that a wedding can change intelligent, together women – a teacher and a lawyer, no less – into deranged, sabotaging, banshees demeans all brides.
There's no romance or comedy in this alleged romcom. I got more out of Clone Wars than Bride Wars – and that's saying something. If you've seen the trailer, you've seen the “best” bits anyway.

If you're the kind of guy who 'gives in' and gets dragged along to chick-flicks, then make sure that this isn't one of those films. It's boring enough for anyone to sit through but it's 100 times worse for a guy. This film takes a silly idea and tries to hold it up with star power but still falls flat.
While the plot is wafer thin and the script at times laughable, entertainment value is right up there. Harmless, non-fattening Candy Floss, this movie delivers the feel good factor. Final voice over moments commenting on finding "The one" in your BFF, touched a chord I did not expect and was arguably the films philosophical saving grace !
