Review: Bride Wars (2009)
It's only fitting that I would follow up The Wrestler with a gem like Bride Wars.
Uh, there's not a whole lot to say about this, because it is a romantic comedy with tweaked circumstances. Translation: It's exactly how you would expect it to be, but you already know what happens with the characters. Two best friends, who have dreamed of a June wedding at the Plaza Hotel in New York since they were girls, both get proposed to at the same time by their blandish boyfriends, and both have their dreams realized. Until, that is, a scheduling error occurs and they are forced to share their wedding day (which means they can't be each other's maids of honor. Drag). Sabotage ensues, and except for a few moments of clever self-awareness, it's all pretty lame.
Also, as someone who is unashamedly obsessed with weddings, I was expecting more of that kinda stuff, but I was extremely let down.
