Product Description

Romantic comedy starring Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson as two best friends who become arch rivals overnight when they realise they have scheduled their fairytale weddings for the same date. Their competitiveness knows no bounds as both women resort to ever more devious tactics to secure the very best of everything - including the guest list - for themselves.

From Amazon.co.uk

How important is the perfect wedding? Emma (Anne Hathaway) and Liv (Kate Hudson) have been best friends since childhood and each has always dreamed of an extravagant wedding at the Plaza hotel. When both friends get engaged in the same week, they rush to the exclusive wedding planner Marion St. Claire (Candice Bergen) to book the perfect weddings at the Plaza hotel. The reservations get mixed up and both weddings end up scheduled on the same day and, since there are no other suitable openings available at the Plaza, the friends find themselves in the impossible situation of having to decide who will sacrifice her long-held dream and change venues. It turns out that neither woman is willing to give up her plans for a perfect wedding and the friends turn against one another in a hilarious battle that results in everything from blue hair to rumours of pregnancy and embarrassing home videos accompanying one bride's walk down the aisle. Can even a life-long friendship survive the emotional turmoil of two weddings gone wrong? Bride Wars is an amusing look at the trials of friendship and love that's sure to inspire laughter and perhaps even a tear or two. --Tami Horiuchi, Amazon.com

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.

I wanted to like "Bride Wars" but it was terribly forced (you feel like they're presuming this is funny when it's just not).

But if you want to own it on BLU RAY note that the American issue on 20th Century Fox is REGION A LOCKED - so it won't play on our machines unless they're chipped to be 'all regions' (which few are).

Opt for the UK issue instead - some have it on sale for peanuts...

I don't like to be too influenced by other people's opinions, but generally find that I don't much enjoy any film that scores less than 3 stars on Amazon. I'm glad I wasn't put off this film by some of the negative reviews, as I thoroughly enjoyed it. Yes, it's a chick flick, and yes it's light and frothy, but it's also heartwarming and good fun, with that all important (as far as I'm concerned) feel-good ending. Bring out the popcorn and chocolates, put your feet up, sit back and enjoy ...

By Kona TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 9 Dec. 2009
Format: DVD
Liv and Emma (Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway) are long-time best friends who always dreamed of weddings at New York's Plaza Hotel. After they both get engaged, they go to an elite wedding planner (Candice Bergen) who manages to bungle things and, wouldn't you just guess, both weddings are scheduled for the same place, date, and time. Oh, the horror!

Watching this comedy actually made me depressed. The two young ladies were so self-absorbed and shallow that their weddings - not their marriages - became the be-all and end-all of their lives and drove them to do outlandish (and possibly illegal) things. Their jealousy and drama about the Plaza, the dresses, the parties, etc. was so far-fetched that I couldn't relate. Anne Hathaway is lovely and comes off better than her co-star Hudson, but I still didn't like either one of the superficial, childish, and annoying characters.

If a fancy wedding party is your biggest goal in life, this may be the movie for you; if not, skip it.

By Love Books! TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 16 Jan. 2009
Format: DVD
This film follows in the tradition of unapologetically-pink-fluffy-chick-flick-girlinesss - it's closely related to films like, for example, Legally Blonde and 13 Going On 30... only Bride Wars isn't as good.

Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson play childhood best friends who are as close as two people can be until there is a mix up with their wedding planner (played by Candace Bergen who is seeing something of a revival since her role in Boston Legal) and both have weddings booked at The Plaza on the same day.

Their competing soon turns into out and out sabotage - nonsense like trying to ensure the other gains weight so they no longer fit their Vera Wang wedding dress, and sneaking into the hair-dresser so hair is mistakenly dyed blue... petty and vindictive and wholly unrealistic.

But there's no denying that its pink-girliness is watchable and fun in its own way; it's as deep a puddle that's been baking in the sun all day, and as meaty as candy-floss, but it's certainly very feel-good. As I said, it's not as enjoyable as Legally Blonde and 13 Going on 30, but it's a nice escape from the real world for a couple of hours and it has a satisfyingly predictable ending.

Men, however, will hate it with the fire of a thousand suns, and any chap who is dragged to see this by his significant other and manages to make it all the way through... well, kudos, sir. Very big kudos indeed.

As a romcom, I always expect a fair amount of predictability so that isn't something that I am going to complain about too much in this review. Due to the plot, as mentioned above, I didn't actually know if one girl was going to back down or if either/ or would actually get married in the end so it was a nice surprise to be kept guessing for a little while. The plot on a whole though, was uninspired and fairly bland throughout. There were no really exciting parts or anywhere that I thought was done spectacularly. Nothing about the plot really stood out for me apart from the fact that I hadn't seen a film like this before.

Due to the plot being pretty boring, the comedy also suffered. I think that with different writers maybe, Bride Wars would have been a whole lot funnier. There were definitely many places which could have been hilarious but instead, I just found myself staring at the TV. Considering the girls are out to sabotage each others' wedding, nothing massive was done in order to achieve this. The pranks that they played on each other could have been a whole lot better and there was nothing here that really made me even giggle a little bit. The pranks were just mundane and thoughtless.

Even though I really disliked the film, the acting was a much better. Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway are both great comedy actresses and they didn't disappoint in this film. I think both did the very best that could have been done with the script they were working with and would have been really funny if the script was as well. Both actresses are very different so I thought that the friendship chemistry between the two was fabulous and the different personalities bounced off of each other well.
