This certainly not a good way to kick off the new year.
“Bride Wars” centers around two good friends, Emma and Liv, who’ve both been dreaming of having a perfect wedding. While this is all well and good, their dreams go off the rails when their wedding dates land on the same day.
For this reason, the two become enemies, with each trying to upstage each other to have the better wedding.
This movie was just a trainwreck, and it’s mainly due to its premise. Instead of being a fun rivalry with some wild hijinx, the way the two main characters just turn on each other is just entirely mean spirited.
All the movie has is backstabbing between characters and there’s no charm to make these characters likable.
Additionally, the attempts at humor is either slapstick or comedy based on sabotaging attempts.
The romance isn’t very good in the movie either. The relationships felt forced and didn’t offer any believability.
This was likely due to the films atrocious script which didn’t give either Hathaway or Hudson to do anything spectacular.
“Bride Wars” is an entirely forgettable picture with neither romance or comedy. 1 out of 5.
