"Bride Wars" is a comedy movie starring Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway as two best friends, Liv and Emma, who have been dreaming of their perfect wedding day since they were little girls. They made a pact to get married at the same place, the Plaza Hotel in New York City, and they even chose the same wedding day, June 6th. However, their dream wedding turns into a nightmare when a mistake by their wedding planner causes them to be scheduled for the same venue and date.

What ensues is a series of hilarious and petty pranks as the two brides-to-be try to sabotage each other's weddings to gain the upper hand. They go to great lengths to ruin each other's plans, from changing the other's tan to stealing their wedding gown, and even fake a pregnancy to get the other to move the wedding day.

Their feud causes a rift in their friendship, and they start to realize that their obsession with the perfect wedding was taking away the joy of their engagement and relationships. As the wedding day approaches, they finally come to realize that their friendship is more important than their perfect wedding day.

Candice Bergen plays Marion St. Claire, the renowned wedding planner who caused the mix-up, and also Liv's boss at the law firm. She provides comic relief throughout the movie as she tries to manage the chaos created by Liv and Emma's feud.

One of the notable themes in the movie is the pressure that society puts on brides to have the perfect wedding day, which can lead to a loss of perspective and caring more about the wedding than the marriage itself. The movie also portrays the importance of friendship and the importance of learning to put aside differences and work together to achieve a goal.

Overall, "Bride Wars" is a lighthearted and funny movie that explores the ups and downs of friendship and the sometimes absurd pressure brides face when planning their weddings. The chemistry between Hudson and Hathaway is excellent, and the pranks they pull on each other will leave the audience laughing out loud. While it may not be a movie with a profound message or strong character development, it's an enjoyable watch for anyone looking for a fun and entertaining comedy.

Bride Wars is a 2009 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 29 minutes. It has received poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.5 and a MetaScore of 24.
