Bride Wars (PG)
Wednesday 09 January 2008
A chick flick of such unutterable vileness that by the end you may feel suicidal, or perhaps just homicidal.
Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway play best friends who fall out spectacularly – and boringly, and unfunnily – when their wedding dates are found to clash, and each begins to sabotage the other's plans. Did nobody involved in making this stop to wonder how badly the two women come across – what screechingly spoilt, egomaniacal monsters they both appear?
It would seem not. For Hudson it's just one more to add to an ever-lengthening charge sheet (Fool's Gold, How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days), but for Hathaway this is a horrible disappointment which is the worst possible taster for her starring role in Rachel Getting Married later this month.
