      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Bride Wars takes the already wearisome concept of battling bridezillas, and makes it thoroughly insufferable via a lazy script and wholly detestable characters.

      Tammy Oler Bitch Media Women, on-screen and in the audience, deserve better. Dec 18, 2020 Full Review Nell Minow Movie Mom Rated: C Feb 18, 2012 Full Review Melissa Anderson Time Out Rated: 2/5 Nov 17, 2011 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review The result hardly lives up to the title's promise or potential and resolves to be a safe little dud. Rated: 1/4 Mar 3, 2024 Full Review Richard Crouse Richard Crouse Little more than a sitcom premise stretched to feature length. Rated: 1/5 Jan 31, 2021 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins The tragic outcomes and easy clean-up of a far too messy situation will leave viewers wishing for a more comfortably predictable plotline.

      Thipa a The main character behaved like a pre-teen with adult powers and responsibilities. The movie could have been a passable time-killer with its unrealistic premise, but it failed to deliver even that. It made poor decisions in engaging the audience, leaving them without any satisfaction. Just disappointing. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 05/23/24 Full Review Eye C This is so vain, I really don't think that an important event as a wedding should take it so vain. I don't like it, Mrs. Hathaway can't act angry, she looks so fake when it shout. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 04/12/24 Full Review Hargie M No character development. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 04/04/24 Full Review Roasting N A cliched mess of a chick flick, all the relationships in the movie are thoroughly unexplored, even the dynamics of the 2 main characters are not delved unto well. But the most grating thing about this movie that a lot of people skim over, is the fact that Emma basically left her 10+ year relationship over a stupid film with no proper build up to the breakup, and then she suddenly catches feels for Liv's brother? Early on in the movie, that is not even explored nor even hinted on, Emma and Flitcher (her prior partner) had a somewhat healthy and wholesome relationship, also Emma and Liv's brother had a more of a Sister to Brother dynamic which felt sour to the taste once their romance began. I also felt that there would be more to Deb's character and why she is the way she is, but ultimately nearly all the characters are undefined because the runtime wants to prioritize stupid and honestly unfunny skits. Only saving grace to me are Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson's performance tgat somehow sold me their Best Friends For Life dynamic. Overall a cliche film with zero to no character. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/21/24 Full Review Joshua C I didn't expect much from this one, just a half decent time with a few laughs, and I still feel disappointed. Apart from some comedic scenes, this film is a real nothing burger. Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway's charisma can't save this bland, unfunny, and painfully predictable movie. While it has a good message, the story which is used to convey it isn't. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/17/24 Full Review Christian K Not really offensive in way, just incredibly bland and the leads struggle through the very silly plot and thin characters. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/11/24 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
