Bride Wars: Many Fewer Wars than Advertised

Bride Wars: Trailer 1 @ Apple Trailers

Apologies for the lack of posts, but I was busy with important things like stuffing myself with Christmas cookies, alcohol, and just generally being unhealthy. But i'm back now and ready to previct some more movies!

First one of the New Year: Bride Wars. Sadly this trailer did not turn out as I hoped, since what I hoped for was a Star Wars populated by scantily dressed lesbian brides (or vampires...Lesbian Vampire Killers review is yet to come). Instead we have some romantic comedy style cinematography which, curiously enough, then seems to throw out the romantic part and focus on the rivalry the comes about when two best friends clash over a wedding venue.

It certainly doesn't look like a bad movie (from a non-guy) perspective, but I think conceding the romantic fight to focus on the comedic slapstick between the two girls is probably a bad move. Neither the scary looking Hudson nor the fresh faced Hathaway really looks to have the charisma or wit to sustain anything substantial in the interaction. Boring, but not bad, 40%-59%.

Starring a frighteningly made up Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway, Bride Wars is due out January 9th.
