The film focuses on the maid of honor, Annie. She's lost her boyfriend and business (a cake bakery) and is very bitter. She spends her days working at a jewelry store. Not well, I might add, since she likes to convince people not to buy rings since their relationship must be doomed as well.
Annie's friend since childhood, Lillian, invites her to be her maid of honor. Annie feels out of place since all of Lillian's friends are much wealthier than she is. Lillian's other friend and bridesmaid, Helen, throws her an engagement party, which Annie embarrasses herself at when she tries to upstage her at the speech. See, this isn't humor. I hate seeing people embarrassing themselves because I feel awkward. I've seen Kristen Wiig on SNL and I know she can do better than this.
Annie takes the bridal party to a dive restaurant, which gives most of them food poisoning. It doesn't hit them until they go to the bridal shop and try on expensive dresses. Then, cue the puking and diarrhea. My husband makes me watch Family Guy all the time and they use this humor as well. I always think whenever I watch a wedding movie or romance film, Gee I wish there was more diarrhea in this.
Then, Annie starts going out with a cop, Rhodes, for no reason than we need to have some sort of romance in a woman's film. After all, we're women, can't have a film without romance, right? Annie once again embarrasses us by acting a fool on an airplane, and later cussing her own best friend, the bride, at her bridal shower. She is so selfish and bitter and brings down everyone around her. They were going to have the bachelorette party in Vegas, but didn't get to thanks to Annie.
Lillian kicks Annie from her position as maid of honor, and she responds by trying to talk a teenager out of buying a friendship bracelet at work. Her attitude gets her fired, and is forced to move in with her mother. Then, all is forgiven in the last few minutes so we can have a wedding and happy ending. The worst part of this film is not just the plot, but the sheer length of the film. If it were shorter, they could have crammed more laughs in there. If they were any, they're too far and few between to notice. In honestly this film was quite boring. I'm giving it a 3/10.
