Hollywood loves youth. Hence a lot of the new writers and directors are very young and don't have the wisdom to see beyond their immediate circle.
A LOT of movies lately are SO HOLLYWOOD. When we watch a movie where someone is supposed to be from the Midwest, we laugh. They haven't a clue as to what we are like.
Thank goodness movies are JUST for entertainment and not education.(Too bad the rest of the world 'learns' about our culture from them).

I went to an advanced screening of this movie and I would be hard-pressed if Kate Hudson didn't win a best actress nomination for this role. Her acting is at its best in this role and if she doesn't win the Academy Award for this role, then there is something wrong with the Academy.

Wow, Hudson and Hathaway on the same set. Hope the crew had a truckload of cigarettes available.

Can we go one day without seeing Anne Hathaway's bug-eyed face 1500 times? Every time this girl takes a poo or goes to the grocery store we have to hear about it.

kate hudson's voice always sounds like she's swallowing a piece of gum, sort of like blake lively, who always sounds like she's trying to work around a too-big retainer. i found the commercials so irritating, no way would i see this.

Movie actors take note:

If you are signing on for a movie, be sure to ask if Kate Hudson will be your co-"star" first. If so, run to the hills. It will be a horrible, cliched movie.

Hudson's career seemed to be destined for great things at the beginning of the decade ("Almost Famous"). She has fallen hard and fast. I guess a cute face can only get you so far...

Hudson is the personification of the "show up and collect a huge paycheck" actor. If she wasn't an actor, she'd be a Cook County employee.

You obviously don't know a lot of 26 year old women, especially when its comes to weddings and engagements.

Love you baby!

1. The prolonged adolescence that advertisers have so profitably cultivated during the past 30 years has, indeed, produced an enormous crop of 26 year olds of both genders with the arrested emotional and intellectual developments of 11 year olds.

2. Perhaps partly due to the above, unlike writers of 70 years ago today's writers simply do not have the imaginations or skills to create anything that approaches the entertainment that Hollywood produced during the Great Depression. Even the most casual survey of television and books will confirm that. We're cynical, resentful of everyone, and poorly skilled with words and any conceptual development that requires more than 30 minutes.

This movie would seem to be Exhibit A in this thesis.

NuOrder, if you're not being sarcastic, I want whatever you're smoking.

Sadly, this trainwreck of a movie is sure to make it's money back and then some.

interesting, though, that when MEN act like idiots, the public eats it up; women do it, and, well, they're criticized for it, as Phelps does here.

Oh, how I dream of equality....

why even have a guy go see this movie, let alone ask him to write a review of it... i just came back from seeing it... and it was funny. i lol'd a few times and -gasp- even felt teary a couple times. some of it was corny but overall it was good. kate hudson is funny & she is really just like her mother. anne hathaway is a good actress for stuff like this, on that devil <3's prada level. i'd give it 3 out of 5. so there :P

The movie "Bride Wars" is an Excellent Movie!

I just returned from the movie and it was very good. We women just love bridal movies, so no matter what the critics say, many people in the attendance seemed warm to it.

Maybe there will be a sequel....

When you take two of the most overrated actresses of the last 3 generations and put them on the big screen together, what do you expect?
