Product Description

In this romantic comedy, introduced by Tony Curtis, simple country girl Chouchou (Brigitte Bardot) is transformed into a top model when she is spotted by a Paris magazine. However, her attempts to woo the magazine editor, Michel (Louis Jourdan), always end in frustration.

Product Description

United Kingdom released, PAL/Region 0 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), SPECIAL FEATURES: Interactive Menu, Remastered, Scene Access, Special Edition, Trailer(s), SYNOPSIS: Originally titled Mariee est trop belle, this Brigitte Bardot romp is better known as The Bride is Much Too Beautiful. BB plays an innocent country lass who heads for Paris in hopes of becoming a model. This she does, not by posing in the nude but by showing off wedding frocks. Bardot falls in love with magazine editor Louis Jourdan, but he falls to respond until she takes drastic action-which means of course, removing most of her outer garments. Costar Micheline Presle isn't given much to do: this is Bardot's film all the way (in every sense of that phrase).

1.0 out of 5 stars Excruciating American Dubbed Version 27 Oct 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Poor quality print, and only available with American English dubbing. No option to listen to French Language original soundtrack. Buy it if you must, but of little interest to true lovers of French cinema. I will keep because cheap at time of purchase, only three pounds 54p at time of this review, and too much of an inconvenience to return it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Strictly for 21 Mar 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Potential buyers need to know that a/ This is a very poor copy and b/ The American dubbing is lamentable, even for Americans I dare say. The only reason I can think of for buying 'Her Bridal Night' is to add to a collection of Bardot movies. That's why I bought it anyway. What you think of the movie itself is purely a matter of opinion.

4.0 out of 5 stars A witty, delightful comedy 24 Jun 2002
By A Customer - Published on
The Bride is Much Too Beautiful is a charming romantic comedy. There are four main characters and the actors/actresses all do a fine job. Bardot plays the 'good girl' role. With pigtails and ponytails, she looks even younger than her years. Despite her youthful appearance, she exhibits an extraordinary amount of sex appeal. Despite Bardot's awesome prescence, this is one movie that she doesn't dominate. Louis Jourdan of Gigi fame plays his usual suave and charming self. Micheline Presle plays the role of a career oriented publishing executive. I thought her performance was excellent. Jean-Francois Calve plays one of BB's love interests.
The script is quite well written. For example, when Bardot was asked by guy who admired her if she liked necklaces, she replied 'Not if there are strings attached'. While there is some narrative used for information purposes and to move the story along the movie is mostly dialogue and not narrative.
The musical score is quite good. One melody is very enchanting and invokes memories of the incomparable Unchained Melody.
The movie I saw was in black and white and dubbed in English. Despite these shortcomings, I found this movie quite charming.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bardot in delightful romantic comedy 4 Dec 2010
By Byron Kolln - Published on
Charming romantic comedy nonsense with Brigitte Bardot, HER BRIDAL NIGHT (aka "The Bride is Much Too Beautiful", La mariée est trop belle) is really only a footnote in her screen career, but it's delightful none-the-less.

Pert teen model "Chou-Chou" (Bardot) is secretly in love with fashion magazine editor Michel (Louis Jourdan), though must tread very carefully, as she suspects co-worker Judith (Micheline Presle) of also harbouring feelings for him. During a weekend photo shoot in the country, reality and fantasy blur when "Chou-Chou"'s male model partner walks off on the job, and Michel must replace him for a series of wedding photos. "Chou-Chou" goes overboard trying to keep her feelings under wraps as the situation dissolves into farce.

Pierre Gaspard-Huit directed this froth in the same year that Roger Vadim immortalised Bardot as the ultimate screen vixen in "...And God Created Woman". It's a thin piece of French pastry, and thankfully doesn't overstay it's welcome. The English dubbed version (which is, I believe, the only version of the film currently available on home video) is quite well-done with Louis Jourdan, at least, reprising his role.

The DVD from Laserlight/Delta Entertainment also includes a special introduction from Tony Curtis, plus the trailer for the 1965 Bardot/Jeanne Moreau film "Viva Maria!".

3.0 out of 5 stars Bardot is a magical being who has bewitched the entire world... 6 Feb 2009
By Roberto Frangie - Published on
Bardot is as aggressively irresponsible as she is shamelessly female... Vadim knew how to exploit her charms... He made her a living, breathing sexual fantasy, an object of desire, a symbol of sexual liberty, and as he puts it: "The unrealizable dream of all married men."

However, filmmaker Pierre Gaspard-Huit did not understand that Bardot's image had been permanently altered, and cast her the same year of "And God Created Woman," in rather dull film, in which Bardot played an adorably naive and provincial girl metamorphosed into a cover girl on the lookout for her Prince Charming...

The hottest most provocative new bombshell had been woefully miscast as a blushing, sweet little thing, which was really "too much."

Luckily, 1957 began with "Une Parisienne," which saw Michel Boisrond, her friend and ally since the film "Cette Sacrée Gamine" assign her role of a dynamic and fun-loving woman...

Mostly narrated and in Black and White. I was expecting a "highly commical" video. It took me 3 days to get through the movie. I had to keep turning it off out of boredom.
