The Happy Couple: Emma (Anne Hathaway) and Fletcher (Chris Pratt); Liv (Kate Hudson) and Daniel (Steve Howey)
The Hanger On: Marion St. Claire (Candice Bergen)
What’s the situation? Emma and Liv have been friends all their lives, but when they end up with bookings for the same day at New York’s Plaza hotel, they lose their freakin’ minds and go mental with one another. Before you can say “Chill the hell out, you shrieking harridans!” they’re sabotaging one another’s waistlines, tan lines and hair lines. Amid the chaos, Liv’s relationship gets stronger and Emma’s apparently-solid one begins to come apart at the seams – but the real focus is on these apparently bosom-buddies who are so insanely focused on a wedding ceremony that they trash their lives for it, the awful, awful human beings.
Worst moment: Just the whole situation. Ladies, you can apparently afford $80,000 weddings! If they’re on the same day wouldn’t that be better for you as BFFs? This is the very acme of a first-world problem.
Moral of the story? It is just a wedding, and just a hotel, for just one day. Friendship lasts, hopefully, a good bit longer, so prioritise.
