Trivia

In the opening shot, when the policeman is walking through the evidence locker room, several dolls appear. These resemble, or may actually be, from the movie series Puppet Master. They appear in the first storage case shown, on the left side of the screen. See more »

Goofs

The Chucky doll's body style changes throughout the movie. When he is sitting next to Tiffany in her trailer and when Damien picks him up, his legs remain in a seated position, much like a GI Joe, but when Damien throws him, he lays flat like his limbs are limp like a rag-doll, considering that Charles Lee Ray is controlling the dolls body, it is plausible that he chose these positions himself because he is always part human, he is never all doll.

Tiffany: Hello.
Bailey: Hey I'm on my way. And don't forget my money.
Tiffany: See you soon. And Bailey, don't you forget. Curiosity killed the cat.

Crazy Credits

At one point during the credits, you can hear Tiffany say "We belong dead", and at the very end, after a rock'n roll song is played, Chucky says "That's more like it", followed by his evil laughter. See more »

A rough ride to Hackensack for Chucky and his bride...
29 October 2008 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Clever is the word that comes to mind when I think of the mixture of horror and comedy that makes up a good deal of BRIDE OF CHUCKY, much of the humor due to some good one-liners by Chucky (courtesy of BRAD DOURIF's voice). And JENNIFER TILLY does an exceptional job as a dim-witted, evil partner of the doll eventually turned into a doll herself who is just as manic as her boyfriend.

NICK STABILE and KATHERINE HEIGL are the leads, the unsuspecting victims of much of the mayhem, who have to confront the evil they're dealing with which leads toward a cemetery in Hackensack where the evil dolls hope to retrieve an amulet from a corpse that will restore their original bodies.

It's photographed expertly, well directed by Ronny Yu and there's an unusual amount of range to the expressions on both dolls that make them seem eerily real. The final scene in the cemetery is guaranteed to give you a final startled moment.

JOHN RITTER plays his role as Police Chief Kinkaid with some restraint, but it's not much of a part until his gruesome demise.

Summing up: Not bad as far as these sort of horror capers go.
