Bride Wars

Liv (Kate Hudson) and Emma (Anne Hathaway) are besties 4 EVA, with life-long dreams of the perfect wedding. Even their respective bridal engagements happen within hours. Together they plan their weddings, each to take place at New York's ultimate bridal destination: the Plaza Hotel. But a clerical error, causing a clash of wedding dates, pits the two brides against each other in a competition that quickly escalates into all-out war.

Directed by Gary Winick, who made the recent Charlotte's Web and the more closely related 13 Going On 30 in 2004.

While the premise is as flimsy as a brides' veil, Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway make this girls-only comedy about two girls, two weddings and a friendship in crisis, into a moderately enjoyable, if forgettable affair.

A dopey if largely painless romantic comedy.

pretty thin soup. The characters have no depth or personality, no quirks or complications, no conversation. The story twist is so obvious from the first shot of two characters talking that they should have been waving handkerchiefs over their heads and signaling: Watch this space for further developments. The whole story is narrated by Bergen as the wedding coordinator, who might as well have been instructing us how to carve bars of Ivory Soap into little ducks.

Sometimes the only funny stuff is in the trailers, but not so here. Kristen Johnson was especially adept at stealing some scenes.

Anne Hathaway must be hoping her Oscar nomination for Rachel Getting Married will completely overshadow her performance in this pointless chick flick.

A chick flick in the purest sense--it's not about men or falling in love--and is quite funny.
