The Plaza is an extremely popular wedding venue, yet when Emma and Liv first meet Marion and say they BOTH want to be married at the Plaza, in June - only 3 months away - Marion says the Plaza has two dates available. When the mix-up happens, she informs the girls that the next available booking in June is 3 YEARS away - which seems more likely in terms of advance wedding bookings at the Plaza Hotel. See more »

Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson are in the "Bride Wars" in this 2009 comedy about two best friends who, due to a scheduling mistake, end up with the same date for their wedding. They agree one has to give up the date; but each finds out from someone else that the other is doing save the date cards or something, and they turn on one another. It becomes a goal for each woman to destroy the other's wedding.
This film is really for young girls, or so it seemed to me. It's funny in a silly kind of way. I frankly thought Hudson seemed older than Hathaway (she is, but only by three years).
Candace Bergen plays a popular wedding planner, and it's always great to see her. Loved seeing the locations around Central Park and the Plaza.
