Could have been great but missed the mark
on 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.
