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 »

The UK cinema version was cut for a 'PG' rating. The cuts were: An aggressive use of 'bitch' to describe a female character. A character saying 'Mother F' when she hears her wedding date has been double booked. See more »
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?
