Bridesmaids

film-bridesmaidsLast night I finally watched the film Bridesmaids which was in my ‘to watch’ list for quite some time.

When Lillian gets engaged to be married her long time friend 91AekcUuy+L._SL1500_Annie is going to be her maid of honor and a new circle of friends will be her bridesmaids. Although Annie is happy for her friend, her personal life is far from satisfactory and she feels a total failure. Through her own disappointments she can’t see how she is ruining her friend’s wedding preparations and a lot of things don’t go according to her plans.

Somewhere I had heard that it was supposed to be the female equivalent of The Hangover so I expected something funny, but as I remember it The Hangover was much funnier. It was an ok film to spend the evening, but I didn’t relate to any of the characters and didn’t laugh as much as I expected.

Bride Wars

bride warsLast night I watched on TV the film Bride Wars.

Two ridiculous women, who are best friends, have been planning their weddings since their childhood. When they grew up, fate had them get engaged practically the same day and so they bridewould have to get married on the same day at the same venue, and that is how all the misunderstandings and the war began.

It is a film set in a world where nothing else matters, only weddings. Apart from that the film made me think of my best friend as it also shows two real friends. Friends, like these two, will sometimes fight and they will fight really bad; but real friends, again like these two, will make it up. Real friends always do, because real friendship, just like true love, lasts forever.

Watch it only if you have nothing better to do!
