When Liv first finds the Tiffany's ring box, the ribbon is completely covering the box, which you can see how she tries to open it, Liv is untying the ribbon. However, when Nate opens the box and hands it to his co-worker, the ribbon is still tied because the ribbon is split, so the box can be opened without untying the ribbon. See more »

Quotes

Marion St. Claire: It was quite a wedding and as I stood there watching I realized something I'd forgotten a long time ago. Sometimes in life there really are bonds formed that can never be broken. Sometimes you really can find that one person who will stand by you no matter what. Maybe you will find it in a spouse and celebrate it with your dream wedding.

Now that is a chic flick
7 January 2009 | by (Albuquerque, NM) – See all my reviews

I believe this is what truly defines a 'girly' movie... It obviously about brides and whatever stuff they love and need, and from what I can figure most of the women (including the 4 women that dragged me there) in the theater enjoyed it.

I do agree it is an original idea and does give esp the males out there the sheer intensity of how important this occasion is for women, and also to a certain extent why women may make good friends but the worst of enemies.

Overall I give it a 6 on 10 due to a lot of predictability and clichés but I did like the chemistry of the 2 leads stars, the others characters seemed rather bland in fact entirely devoid of personality.

Perhaps the only scene for men to enjoy is the bachelorette party - you 'll see - ;) Hathaway looks smokin' hot.
