In this romantic comedy directed by Gary Winick, Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway play the characters of best friends Liv and Emma, who since childhood have planned every detail of their respective weddings: a ceremony at New York´s ultimate bridal destination, the Plaza Hotel and being bridesmaids at each other’s wedding.
Nowadays, at the age of 26, they’re about to get married, realize their dreams and live happily ever after. However, a clerical error causes a clash in wedding dates and they’re going to be married on the same day!! Liv, Emma and their lifelong friendship are put to the ultimate test.
Liv, a successful lawyer who is used to getting what she wants, including the perfect job and man won’t resign herself for anything less than the perfect wedding she has dreamed of for years. Emma, a school teacher who has always been good at taking care of others, but not so much at looking after herself, comes out swinging when her own dream wedding is in danger.
Now, the two best friends who’d do anything for each other find themselves in a no‐holds barred, taking‐no‐prisoners, a struggle that threatens to erupt into all‐out war.
In my opinion it’s an absolutely hilarious film you should go to see if you want to have a good time laughing. It’s the typical American comedy but if you like this kind of films, I think it’s a good time and it’s not based on “high‐school” stories like the most of them.
It describes the most common things that a “typical good girl” dreams of on the day of her wedding and it describes the scenario of the usual nerves of the days near to a wedding.
