Goofs

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 Daniel 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 »

Mediocre at Best
29 January 2009 | by swinktorxerSee all my reviews

Honestly, how many angry bride movies can Hollywood come out with? I thought 27 Dresses had a pretty good plot, even though it was way way way predictable, the characters were likable and different. There were no strip club bachelor/bachelorette parties, no fights that left you hating both of the women in the movie, and some pretty good acting. However,in Bride Wars, Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway have reached a low point in their career, dreadfully overacting and dramatizing every little detail to the point of me losing interest. The three male leads were decent, but for the most part, left a lot to be desired. Their characters were somewhat shallow, possibly due to a predictable and weak screenplay and script. This reminded me too much of all the bride movies and over-hyped chick flicks of the past. When will Hollywood come out with another Notebook romance?
