Bride Wars

comment
Emma (Anne Hathaway) and Liv (Kate Hudson) are best friends who’ve dreamed of getting married at New York’s Plaza Hotel ever since they were kids. So when the time finally comes and their respective weddings accidentally get booked on the same day, neither is willing to give up the date. Things get nasty as the two engage in the catfight of all catfights, going to great lengths to sabotage the other’s wedding. Emma starts anonymously sending Liv cookies and candy so she won’t be able to fit into her wedding dress, and Liv switches the sentimental video Emma plans to play at her wedding with some racy footage from a wild spring break. And try as she might, wedding planner Marion St. Claire (Candice Bergen) just can’t get the girls to make up. Of course, it’s not giving too much away to say the sisters eventually work it out for themselves in this predictable movie that’s simply too cute for its own good. HH
