The first big-studio movie released in 2009 has a damn fine chance of being the worst. Bride Wars isn't just chick-flick hell for guys, it...

Misogyny, in the guise of entertainment. Women degrading themselves, void of self-respect or common decency, setting out to destroy each other over a silly wedding date, playing out the worst of the...

Bridezilla at it's best

Ladies, see this movie with your best friend

Worth it, but not worth it.
