Unleash the Brides
on 1 January 2011
Liv the Lawyer (Kate Hudson) and School Teacher Emma (Anne Hathaway) have been best friends since they were children. When their boyfriends propose on the same day, the girls become one another's maid of honour, and go about planning their wedding. Their chosen location for the wedding is The Plaza, the place they have dreamed of since they were little girls. When they both get the dates of their choice as well as the location of their choice, it all seems too good to be true. And it is. The secretary manages to confuse the dates, so that the girls are planned to get married on the same day. They chase after the bride with the other spare date, but she refuses to give it to them. When neither of them agree to change their wedding day to a later date, they both become enemies spending most of their days prior to the wedding, not planning but sabotaging.
When I first went to see this film at the cinema, both me and my best friend really didn't enjoy it. But as I've 'matured' (ha!) over the years I've grown to enjoy chick flicks, but sadly this isn't one of those enjoyable films.
I'm not saying it's terrible, some parts are quite funny, and the actual plot is rather interesting and believable. Sadly though, the script is let down by the acting on Anne's part. I'm not sure why, but she doesn't feel believable to me while on the other hand Kate does.
I would suggest this film to someone for rainy day viewing, something to pass by the hours.
