Summary: A clerical error tests the lifelong friendship of two brides-to-be by scheduling their respective weddings at the famed Plaza Hotel on the exact same date in this romantic comedy starring Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson. Ever since they were little girls, Liv (Hudson) and Emma (Hathaway) have bonded over planning their weddings down to the very last detail. Now, both in their mid-twenties, Liv and Emma have each found the men they want to spend the rest of their lives with. But while most of the details regarding their respective weddings don't overlap, the one thing that both Liv and Emma have always dreamt of is holding their ceremony at the legendary Plaza Hotel -- New Your City's ultimate bridal destination. Unfortunately, a simple clerical error has scheduled both of their weddings on the exact same date, at the exact same place. As a high-powered lawyer who's used to getting her way, Liv simply isn't willing to settle for anything less than perfection. And though simple schoolteacher Emma has always placed the needs of others above her own, the prospect of making any sacrifices on her big day brings out her inner bridezilla in ways that shock her unsuspecting friends and family. There was a time when Liv and Emma would have done anything for each other, but now that the two best friends are at odds over who will get their dream wedding and who will have to settle for second best, the lacy gloves are off and it's all-out war. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Perry Seibert

It's a cliché that all women want a June wedding. It's also a cliché that the movie studios treat January like a dumping ground for bad movies. Bride Wars manages to fuse these stereotypes because it offers a portrait of ferocious female desire for the perfect wedding date, and also provides ample proof that the first month of the year is the time for forgettable movies. The movie stars Kate Hudson as Type A lawyer Liv and Anne Hathaway as eager-to-please elementary teacher Emma, lifelong best friends who both have dreamed of June weddings at New York City's ritzy Plaza Hotel since a trip there together as kids. When their boyfriends propose within days of each other, Liv and Emma pay a mutual visit to the world's most respected wedding planner, Marion St. Claire (Candice Bergen), who informs them that the Plaza is only available for one day in June. Since neither refuses to give up their ideal vision of the perfect wedding, and won't even consider a dual wedding, the onetime BFFs spend months doing everything within their power to destroy the other's plans.
All in all, that's not a bad premise for a lightweight chick flick, but director Gary Winick and an army of three screenwriters can't come up with a single fresh comedic idea. We're supposed to find it uproariously funny that Liv sabotages Emma's pre-wedding tanning session so that she resembles a pumpkin, and we're supposed to be just as amused that Emma gets her revenge by secretly giving Liv's hair blue highlights. And such stale bits might have worked if we thought their friendship was real, but the movie never establishes their relationship beyond the most trite, sitcommy means; their supposedly deep bond seems to exist solely because they squeal at the same things.
Surprisingly, there is one element that does work: the girls' relationships with their fiancées. The ongoing war between the ladies -- as well as all the normal stress involved in planning a wedding -- begins to take a toll on each of the couples, and the way each pair responds to those challenges provides a level of depth between each of the couples that's missing from the central friendship. Sadly, the movie keeps these scenes to a minimum, probably because the filmmakers -- not to mention the studio -- are aiming for a young female audience, and decided that the boys don't really matter. For a movie about the most unforgettable day in a young woman's life, Bride Wars is thoroughly forgettable. ~ Perry Seibert, All Movie Guide
