    Bride Wars is pretty thin soup. The characters have no depth or personality, no quirks or complications, no conversation. show more

    Never gets off its high-concept stool long enough to explore what makes weddings so exciting and nerve-racking and treacherous. It flounders instead in juvenilia and bitchiness. show more

    Sometimes the only funny stuff is in the trailers, but not so here. Kristen Johnson was especially adept at stealing some scenes. show more
