Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"You want to see Anne Hathaway in a worthy vehicle? Check out "Rachel Getting Married." You want to see Kate Hudson in a worthy vehicle?Rent a time machine."
‑ Richard Roeper, Richard
"No cues are needed to understand the plot, which feels computer-generated and barely serves to sustain an hour and a half running time."
‑ Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"Bride Wars will ensnare the fairer sex like an evil goddamn tractor beam and there's nothing you can do about it. If you must go see it, take a book. Or some cyanide."
‑ Ali Gray,
"It's like the Whack-a-Mole of everything reasonable people hate about so-called 'chick flicks.' [Blu-ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"There are no pleasant surprises in this partly-Boston-shot Gary Winick film."
‑ Betsy Sherman, Boston Phoenix
"Bride Wars makes Sex and the City seem like Jane Austen."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"Director Gary Winick has long since abandoned his cool cred from Tadpole and 13 Going on 30 and given himself over to the dark side of making glossy amusements that are about as deep as staring into a snow globe."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"Bride Wars renders its women characters as stereotypes only capable of approaching the world the way a character from a prime-time TV show might."
‑ Joshua Starnes,
"Enough to make one yearn for the comparatively rich complexity of Home Improvement."
‑ Rob Humanick, Projection Booth
"The movie shows that life can be messy and how unrealistic it is to expect everything to be perfect on "the biggest day in a girl's life""
‑ Keith Cohen, Entertainment Spectrum
"There's more cheer to be gained from staring outside at a bleak and desolate winterscape in the twilight of a shortened day than paying good money to endure this example of cinematic offal."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"In the end, the movie owes its mild success to Anne Hathaway, who makes it watchable."
‑ Mary F. Pols, TIME Magazine
"reptilian, hateful stuff, biologically engineered to disrespect--with maximum efficiency--the precise demographic to which it targets itself."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"It's a movie that mistakenly believes that we should want to like these people."
‑ David Cornelius,
"the leading ladies don't provide any memorable moments other than the obvious visual gag of a cat fight between two women in wedding dresses."
‑ Sean McBride, Sean the Movie Guy
