Bride Wars: Film # 47 of Film 365

Monday 27th June 2011

Director: Gary Winick
Year: 2009
Stars: Kate Hudson, Anne Hathaway, Candice Bergen, Kristen Johnson, Bryan Greenberg, Chris Pratt, Steve Howey

I wasn't expecting anything particularly amazing from this - I just had a couple of spare hours to kill and fancied watching a romantic comedy. And I got basically exactly what I was expecting.

The basic plot is that Liv (Hudson) and Emma (Hathaway) have been friends since childhood, and both dream of a June wedding at the Plaza. When they both get engaged at the same time, they end up getting double booked at the Plaza on the same day in June. Lots of bitchy fighting then ensues between them.

Bride Wars isn't a bad movie, but the woman in it are basically just mean. And for a movie about getting married, the men seem rather irrelevant. If I was one of the grooms, there's no way I'd even be considering marrying these crazy women!

Rating: 2.5 out of 5

About Me

My photo
I live in Bristol with my husband Dan (who I married in July 2007), my son Joe (born 2012) and daughter Jess (born 2015). I work at UWE (the University of the West of England) in Bristol as a Research and Open Access Librarian. I'm orginally from Exeter, so moving back to Bristol is a bit like coming home - especially as I studied for my undergraduate degree here (also at UWE). I love travelling and movies, although I get to do a lot less of both since the birth of our children. Although we have still managed to fit in holidays to the Isles of Scilly, Chamonix and a summer in California since Joe was born.
