Best friends Liv (Kate Hudson) and Emma (Anne Hathaway) spend their entire lives pining for wedded bliss. When they both get engaged to their respective beaus and pursue their shared childhood dream of tying the knot at the Plaza Hotel in New York City, the women end up booked on the same day due to a clerical error. The successful women (Liv’s a lawyer and Emma’s a teacher) stoop to the lowest of techniques when they learn that no other dates are available and that neither is willing to give up the Plaza for her BFF. Blue hair dye at the salon, dress tampering and mean shots at each other’s insecurities provide some relief from the demeaning undertones — and give viewers a chance to see the narrow-minded brides make complete fools of themselves before finally making up. At film’s end, however, both women reveal that they are expecting. Baby Wars? Let’s hope not.
