Bride Wars

Bride Wars is one of those annoying movies where all of the funny parts are shown in the trailer. The trailer ropes you in, but you find that the movie is only a longer version of the trailer without any additional story line or funny bits.

The movie was a slightly entertaining yarn of two best friends played by Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson who have dreamed of a New York wedding at the plaza hotel. The best friends turn into enemies when they both become engaged and through a glitch discover that their weddings have been booked at the plaza at the same date and time.

I love Anne Hathaway and I liked her character and growth in this movie, but didn’t really enjoy the plot of this movie. It seemed strange to me that you could be best friends and then enemies in a turn of a switch. And the whole mix-up seemed strange. How could there be that many openings at the Plaza with only three months until the wedding . . . and then none for two years??

What did you think? Am I being too picky? Why have chick flicks been letting me down so much lately?
