Description: Friends Regan, Gena and Katie are all bridesmaids at their high school friend’s wedding, but they’re not too keen on the idea. And on the eve of the wedding everything starts falling apart and they make mistakes that they have to sort out in a matter of hours.

My Thoughts: I watched this film on a day when I wasn’t really doing anything and I was a little bit under the weather and I wanted something easy and cheerful to watch, and it was that but I’m not sure what else.

The characters had nothing going for them, you didn’t care about any of them at all. They were all really unlikeable and I just hated them.

The romance element of the film was kind of dull and it wasn’t really romance-y it was just a load of people on the eve of someone’s wedding sleeping together.

It was slightly offensive and that made me hate it a little bit more.

I feel like the film was too easy going and cheerful and I feel like it really needed to be spiced up by some drama but all the things that happened in it that could have been dramatic were all twisted into a way that they were just supposed to be comedic and funny and I didn’t like it, I feel like it should have taken the dramatic things more seriously.

Everything that happened was really predictable and your usual rom-com comedy.

Although it was an easy film that didn’t take up too much concentration and didn’t have anything sad or depressing in it and it was just generally cheerful and I know that’s what I set out for and it was that, but there was nothing more to it than that. There wasn’t even like a deeper meaning plot to the story, or some kind of life lesson. It was just plain and simple.

I would watch this film again at a sleepover or something because I think it would be a good sleepover film but I wouldn’t watch it again on my own.

3/5 stars.
