Bride to Be is a romantic comedy that was released in 2017, directed by Mark Andrew Reyes and written by Andrea Canning. The movie presents us with two characters, Charlotte and James, who are planning to get married in a month, but their plans are disrupted when they find out that James' parents are getting divorced. In their attempt to save their relationship, they decide to have a pre-wedding get-away with close friends, including James' best friend, Blade, Charlotte's sister, Lizzie, and their friend, Tonya.

The group of friends embark on a road trip to a cabin in the woods, hoping to avoid any wedding planning chaos and have a carefree weekend. However, when they arrive at the cabin, they realize it's not the peaceful getaway they were expecting. The cabin is in disrepair, the power is out, and they are running low on supplies. The group is forced to improvise and make do with what they have.

Charlotte, who is a perfectionist and always in control, is struggling with the idea of not having everything planned out. On the other hand, James is still dealing with his parents' divorce and is not sure if he wants to go through with the wedding. The tension between them leads to arguments and misunderstandings, causing the group to split up and do their own thing.

As the group spends time apart, they begin to realize the importance of their friendships and the love they have for each other. Charlotte and James become more connected after realizing they both have doubts about the wedding. James' best friend Blade, who has always been a ladies' man, starts to fall for Charlotte's sister Lizzie, and Tonya discovers something unexpected about herself.

The movie also deals with themes of loyalty, trust, and forgiveness. The relationships in the film are complex, and the characters' actions have real consequences. As the group attempts to repair their friendships and relationships, they must confront their own insecurities and faults.

The performances in Bride to Be are solid, with Jonathan Bennett and Fiona Gubelmann leading the cast as James and Charlotte. Both actors bring depth to their characters, and their chemistry is palpable. Nicole Sullivan provides excellent comic relief as Tonya, and Meera Rohit Kumbhani delivers a strong performance as the grounded and practical Nisha. The supporting cast, including Danielle Hille as Lizzie and Alex Reid as Blade, are also strong.

The movie's cinematography is beautiful, with sweeping shots of the forest and the lake. The soundtrack is also enjoyable, with a mix of indie-pop and folk music. The film manages to capture the beauty of nature and the feeling of being completely isolated from the rest of the world.

In conclusion, Bride to Be is an enjoyable rom-com that manages to tackle serious issues while still providing laughs and heartwarming moments. While it may not reinvent the wheel of the romantic comedy genre, it succeeds in delivering a fun and charming movie that is sure to delight audiences.
