Lifelong best friends Liv (Kate Hudson) and Emma (Anne Hathaway) have been planning their ideal weddings together for years. Now that they are both engaged and ready to be wed, they should be happier than ever, right? When a date mix up occurs at their venue they must fight to decide who gets the wedding of her dreams. This movie combines classic bride meltdowns and drama with gentle loving moments that we all know and love. Whether you are laughing, crying or both, this movie will pull at your heartstrings and funny bone! This romantic comedy  was released in 2009 and directed by Gary Winick.

Ever since they were kids, best friends Liv Lerner (Kate Hudson) and Emma Allen (Anne Hathaway) dreamed about having their wedding at the Plaza Hotel in New York. Both girls get engaged around the same time and decide to plan their wedding right away. They successfully book different dates for their wedding at the hotel. Unfortunately, due to a clerical error, their weddings end up on the same day. With no more available spots at the hotel until next year, these girls begin to experience a rift in their friendship as they fight over who gets the wedding date to themselves. Through time, animosity grows between them, and they become determined to sabotage each other’s wedding. At times, the scenes in the movie are too unrealistic and just stupid. But overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this movie.

very good

It's a wedding comedy starring two actresses who can't act. My expectations were low and I was only slightly disappointed. This would be a good movie to see if you're sick, or have a lot of ironing to do. Don't bother with the special features.

Thought this movie was very cute, no matter what everyone else says. Of course, it contained unnecessary minor sexual content and language, but still cute and girly.

The movie was okay about two women marrying. It's cliche and nothing special happens. Good to watch with friends or if you have nothing better to do.

For heaven's sake, 16 copies of this stupid film were purchased. Who makes the purchasing decisions? Is the money spent on such films our tax money?

Please buy some of the really wonderful films from all over the world. For instance, more of the Film Movement Series. For years, this group released one spectacular international film each month. I believe you have only 14 films from the series. This is the kind of films we should be watching. For those who love mediocrity, one copy of Bride Wars is more than enough.

You have a responsibility to help people appreciate various cutures and good quality books and films. Your products should aim to please, but hopefully also to make people's tastes more

Hope my note would be passed to people who make library decisions and not just be read by one person and erased.

I would appreciate if I can be told to whom my note was directed and if people in authority would consider getting more of the Film Movement series.

Thank you..

Really not a good movies even for a chick flick. I usually love girly movies and found this one terrible. Anne Hathaway plays a very unconvincing sweetheart and Kate plays an over the top domineering lawyer. Together it is just a really bad movie.

This one sure won't win any awards but if you're looking for a light, girly comedy, pick this up. So cute!
