Product Description

The Devil Wears Prada meets 27 Dresses in a battle beyond every girl's nightmare! Friends turn rivals when their weddings are accidentally planned on the same day and when neither steps aside they compete for everything!

How important is the perfect wedding? Emma (Anne Hathaway) and Liv (Kate Hudson) have been best friends since childhood and each has always dreamed of an extravagant wedding at the Plaza hotel. When both friends get engaged in the same week, they rush to the exclusive wedding planner Marion St. Claire (Candice Bergen) to book the perfect weddings at the Plaza hotel. The reservations get mixed up and both weddings end up scheduled on the same day and, since there are no other suitable openings available at the Plaza, the friends find themselves in the impossible situation of having to decide who will sacrifice her long-held dream and change venues. It turns out that neither woman is willing to give up her plans for a perfect wedding and the friends turn against one another in a hilarious battle that results in everything from blue hair to rumors of pregnancy and embarrassing home videos accompanying one bride's walk down the aisle. Can even a life-long friendship survive the emotional turmoil of two weddings gone wrong? Bride Wars is an amusing look at the trials of friendship and love that's sure to inspire laughter and perhaps even a tear or two. --Tami Horiuchi

4.0 out of 5 stars great Movie for best friends July 3, 2010
Anne Hathaway plays Emma who is best friends with Liv played by Kate Hudson since they were children. When they were kids they had seen a wedding take place at the Plaza Hotel and made a pack that they both would get married there. So when they both get engaged, they both set dates in June. Problem? some how the weddings are set for the same day June 6th. so one has to change their date but neither wants to. They set out to change the mind of the other in hopes she will change their date.. does it work? watch and find out! Loved this movie...

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been great but missed the mark May 21, 2009
Both the actresses are enjoyable to watch and the plot could have been great but the script was really poor. The only funny parts in the movie were shown in the trailers and some of those parts were even cut out.
They needed a lot more character development of the supporting rolls. Especially since I really like most of the supporting actors (like Candice Bergen and the gal from 3rd rock) and I was looking forward to seeing them in this flick. We barely see any of the fiancés in the movie, only enough to get that one is supportive and loving and the other is a controlling selfish jerk.
There wasn't nearly enough wedding shopping. Like they only tried on one dress and bought it. I would have liked to see a bunch of dresses. Not to mention both dresses were UGLY.
During the whole movie I really didn't understand what all the fighting was about and it wasn't explained well at all. They both got to have their weddings at the Plaza but in different rooms at the same time. I would of said "no big deal" and chosen another maid of honor, so I don't understand why they made such a fuss.
It's too bad because it would have been great to see a sequel with the way they ended it, and I like seeing these two actresses together. Just bad writing I guess.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not that good, but at least it was original April 29, 2010
Of all the chic flicks that came out in 2009, this was probably the most original one. Gone is the sappy romance between guy and gal. Gone are the one-night stands, overbearing families that complicate relationships, and unintended romances. This movie is simply about two girls, best friends since childhood, who by accident have their weddings scheduled on the same day at the same place. They then proceed to destroy each other as a way of getting the other one to postpone the wedding. Would something like this ever happen in real life? Probably not, but the movie does seem believable, and the comedy is actually quite good. So overall, an enjoyable 1.5 hours of time in front of the TV.

3.0 out of 5 stars Digital copy is advertised but NOT included August 7, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
digital copy is advertised on the packaging of this set, and rather than just get the blu ray alone i went for more money to get the digital copy. The CODE EXPIRED EARLY THIS YEAR. Don't waste your money buying this "3 disc set" just buy the blu ray alone. :( False advertising!

2.0 out of 5 stars Inane and Disrespectful October 4, 2009
It is hard to understand how a bland movie that was made for women - ends up insulting women. The vacuous script is full of cat-fights between girlfriends, who have been like sisters. They are absolutely horrid to each other when they find out that their dream location for the marriage (The Plaza Hotel in New York) has only two openings for weddings on the same date.

You wonder why they just don't have a double wedding and save some money - but how they fight over attendees, and dresses, etc. left me incredulous.

The bottom line is best friends become worst enemies just because they chose the same wedding date and the same location.

The plot is weak - and the expensive weddings featured must be promoted by the billion dollar bridal industry.

Both Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson could do much better.

We ended up seeing "Bride Wars" because we ended up at the wrong theater (hey, it is a 50/50 shot in the Zenith City) and it was the next movie starting (we had already paid for parking and popcorn by the time we discovered our--okay MY--mistake). It seemed a good proposition given the likeability of the two stars, Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway. Hudson is Liv, an up and coming cut-throat lawyer, and Hathaway is Emma, a most compliant middle school teacher. Since they were little girls they have dreamed of having June weddings at the Plaza Hotel in New York City. Then the stars align and both become engaged, at which point they immediately book a joint appointment Marion St. Claire (Candice Bergen), the queen of wedding planners. Then the stars look down and laugh, and suddenly it looks like only one of them is going to get the wedding of her dreams. Or maybe both of them will end up with wedding nightmares.

I would say that the situation in "Bride Wars" is contrived, but having also watched "Swing Vote" this week, it seems a gross injustice to lump the two films together in that particular pile. But the problem here is not with the premise, but rather with its execution. The screenplay by Greg DePaul, Casey Wilson and June Diane Raphael comes up with enough comic elements off of the situation, but the movie never evinces any ambition beyond being something to be played at bachelorette parties for the next couple of years.
