Interesting, yet drawn out
18 June 2002 | by aldiaurSee all my reviews

'Always a Bridesmaid' is the story of Nina Davenport's quest for marriage and the frustrations and disappointments she encounters on the was, as told and filmed by Nina Davenport. At first it looks as if it might be dry and boring, but the narrator's voice and style of story telling quickly catches one's interest. You realize this is a true story and you wonder what is going to happen. What kind of person tells her own tale about failed love and unsuccessful relationships, and on video, interviewing all of her friend's about what they think of her and her attitudes towards relationships? Her neurosis pulls you in.

Most of the movie stays pretty interesting, though it begins to drag near the end and you want to tell Nina to stop being dumb and open her eyes. But all in all its an interesting and enjoyable movie.
