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...

"If I were your wedding, I'd be sleeping with one eye open..."

Short Attention Span Summary (SASS):

1. BFFs Emma (Anne Hathaway) and Liv (Kate Hudson) dream of their dream weddings at the Plaza Hotel
2. This is the one thing that Emma has ever wanted
3. Liv always gets everything she wants
4. Oops! Both weddings get booked for the same day
5. Open warfare commences
6. For most of the movie
7. Bit over the top if you ask me
8. ... but funny anyway

This is a straight up chick flick, made watchable by Hathaway and Hudson. If I lost you at "chick flick", I apologize, but this is exactly what this is.

The sabotage scenarios are mostly funny, albeit highly improbable, but this is a good movie to rent for an afternoon giggle with the girls, over wine, cheese and chocolate.

Warning: Forcing menfolk to watch this may constitute grounds for divorce in some countries.

As it's set in New York, all the way through this film I was put in mind of it being an extension-to the series Sex and the City, and was half-expecting Carrie and the girls to rock up at any moment. In addition to which Candice Bergen has a major role - and another actress, Kristen Johnston who had appeared in SATC "Splat" episode in 2004, also appears in Bride Wars - playing a similarly exuberantly raw character to the one she'd played in SATC where she fell out of a skyscraper window at a party - given by Candice Bergen's character. Hathaway and Hudson play complimentary roles as childhood friends whose mutual devotion fractures on the competitive rivalry triggered by their elaborate marriage plans. It says plenty about the modern-day-circus that "the wedding" has become that some women would far rather attend one than every have one oneself. The extravagance, the excesses and cost and the total throw-away factor of the whole thing, is deeply offputting unless you have a brain like Barbie and the pocket of Croesus.

The film excels in the sort of comic excess you expect of a Hollywood production. Lots of loud pop music constantly playing throughout, which I could have happily missed out on; but as a glamorous romp through New York it's the perfect TV movie for your girlfriends to come round and watch over curry, Haagen Daz, and a vat of Chardonnay.

Review from 15 year old!:
I bought this because it was something I had been looking for, for a while and was going to watch it on my laptop but when I bought it I was unsure if it would work on the laptop. Amazingly, it does! so I am happy about that and the movie is very funny and entertaining! It is a really good buy and have been ordering more films on Amazon!

Two best friends fall out because their weddings are double booked on the same day at the same hotel. Frivilous, yet funny with a few laugh-out-loud moments. Watch on your own or with the girls.

I rented this for my sister as she wanted to see it and watched it last night. Now I don't mind a rom-com with a differnce as long as it has heart-warming characters, good-looking blokes, a plot that is a little prejectable but enjoyable enough for a hour or so. But this didn't click right to me, in fact I really didn't like it. At first, it has the narration of two young girls wanting the perfect wedding at the Plaza. So when they grew up and become engaged to their boyfriends, they quickly plan their dates only for it to be mixed up and go to war against each other to have their day. It's not really funny, the characters arren't warm enough to make you feel sorry for them and there's no real romance in it. The blokes are pushed aside and not really intrested in getting married, one of them is so mean to his wife to be and starts to wonder if she wants to be with him. Kate Hudson has done her fair share of rom-coms, some good and some really bad. I found her really annoying in this and don't think she's that of a good actress. Anne Hathaway is a good actress and has done some great films of late but she felt out of place here, maybe it's the script made it that way. I'm not having a go at people who liked or loved this but it didn't win to me, no way a rom-com and glad I have seen it just the once.
