Top critical review
Pretty bad even for fluffy rom com

The idea behind having to buy numerous and sometimes outlandish bridesmaids dresses will make every woman —of any age—smile. But that’s it, a One trick pony.
Lead actress is endearing at first… but very soon her people-pleasing goes over the top so it’s sad rather than entertaining. I will refrain from commenting on her personal dignity as it relates to her interactions with her male boss.
The sister theme kills the movie—i found the jealousy between sisters really unappealing especially for a movie geared towards women. Then the main character’s sister’s desperate need for a husband and erratic behavior is worrisome , (I sincerely thought she was going to turn out to be a hatchet murderer) her ongoing deceptive ploys unbelievable. Meanwhile the male lead’s cynicism and severe aversion to relationships was a giant red flag —/why would the female lead pursue him? Ugh
Basically every character had emotional flaws that were not funny and I felt every one in the movie needed SERIOUS therapy for emotional healing before ANYONE should be in a relationship.
Instead try The Holiday (Cameron Diaz, Jack Black).
