Liv and Emma, best friends since childhood, are always there for each other, through good times and bad. Even their respective bridal engagements happen within hours.

But a clerical error and subsequent clash in wedding dates pits the two brides against each other in a competition that quickly escalates into all-out war.

3:42 I thought you weren’t supposed to wear black or white to a wedding.
4:58 “Think about it, feel it, catch it.”
12:50 “Oh, I was thinking, it might be a good idea to get the proposal.” It might not even be a ring, eek!
20:25 Can’t decide if being a wedding planner is a nice job or hideous.
24:11 Mother-F.
30:34 Pep squad is the same as cheerleading?
32:59 Smiley face in a save the date isn’t a good start.
40:21 Seven tiers on a cake!
45:41 Really coveting the cookie lollipop thing.
49:32 Any kind of pre-wedding tanning seems like a really risky game.
57:47 “So not ideal.” HA.
1:09:07 “I’m gonna do a headcount of the hot drunk single guys, and then choose.”
1:22:45 I feel like someone could run out and get her a dress to change into.


This is objectively not a good movie - the premise is weak and there are plot holes you can drive an elephant through - but it was absolutely perfect for entertainment on a super tired evening. Really it was held together by Anne and Kate, who do the best they can with the script they’re given, and actually make it pretty moving by the end. Entertaining but absolutely not one to be recommended.

Rating: 3 / 5
