Bride Wars

So, a bunch of you on Facebook asked me to let you know what I thought about Bride Wars and if it would be appropriate to take your daughters to see it. Just so you know, I'm probably not the best reviewer of movies. But I will give it a shot. Also, just so you know what types of shows I like, I'll tell you what I watch on a regular basis. This might give you a little insight into my TV personality. 

I never miss LOST, Heroes, House, American Idol, Eli Stone and that's about it. I loved Jericho and October Road when they were on and was very bummed when they were cancelled. I sort of like the Starter Wife but mostly because I like Debra Messing. I used to love her in Ned and Stacey and Will and Grace... but I had to stop watching Will and Grace because I felt convicted. But that's just me. Other shows I used to watch but had to stop (personally) were Desperate Housewives (like 4 or 5 seasons ago seasons ago), Grey's Anatomy, and Boston Legal. I might have to stop watching Heroes because it's becoming like a horror show but I'm holding out because Greg Grunberg is my buddy.  But I digress...

Back to Bride Wars. I thought it was cute but predictable. Not sure if I would take my teenage daughter to see it if I had a teenage daughter (never mind that my five year old thinks she is a teenager already :-) ) There were at least two scenes with bad language that I remember, (although I might be desensitized to the rest) One used the B word and the other another word for donkey :)

There is a good bit of drinking in it and the brides to be are already living with their boyfriends. The movie shows them both in their bedrooms. There is a scene in a bar for the bachelorette party where they "dirty dance" and there are guy strippers. They don't really show anything but the suggestions are there.

There are some funny moments and I did laugh out loud a few times. It is definitely a chick flick and I enjoyed it but mostly because I like Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway. I guess it depends on how old your daughter is whether you take her or not. The movie is rated PG. Here is a link to the review on Plugged In. I'd give it a B-.

Blessings,
Amy

I am so excited to see it because it looks so funny in that chick flick sort of way for when you need a "moms night out" with some girlfriends. I also love Kate Hudson and Anne H. was also good in the last movie I watched her in.

I am glad to hear the review. After hearing about some of the scenes I most definetly will NOT take my 13 year old to it. Thanks for telling us about it. I hate it when I go into a theatre thinking a movie will be suitable and then its not! -blessings, Laurie

Hi there! I had fun with your Sat meme...

stopped back by today and saw you seen Bride Wars!

I saw it today with a friend! Funny & a touching story about best friends! I really liked it (the part where Emma got to take advantage of her new "dancing lessons" was a little on the 'erghh' side for me, but over all .... a good, good movie!

I'll wait a good while before I let my dd, 10 yrs, see the movie, should she ever inquire about it in a couple years from now :O)

Thanks for the review. I had wondered about seeing it myself. Yeah - I'm feeling the conviction with Gray's, too. :-( But I just discovered Monk so I should be good to go.

I do not think I would take my daughter to this one. Sounds a little racy.

I like Greg Grunberg too - but don't you think the first season of heros was more horrific than this one?
