Post Bride Wars: Rent or Buy?

I'm thinking about ordering Bride Wars on Amazon. I've read the review from this site as well as the one from DVDTalk.com, and - as expected - they're in between mixed to negative. However, I love Anne Hathaway...period. But is my love for her enough to justify a purchase or a rental for this movie? I'll let you guys decide.

I'd say if you are really on the fence, rent it first since not everyone shares the same opinions on movies. IF you really do like it then you can buy it afterwards.

If you don't want to pay too much for the rental, try out online sites like Netflix or Blockbuster Online. Heck if you can't wait for the mail, Redbox offers discounted rental every now and then.

I, myself, did enjoy it and will eventually get it on BD but I rented it first from Netflix.

I have not seen it, but I have not heard anything good about it either. I'd rent it first to see it you will like it.

Sometimes we hear of people who are “very” honest, “mostly” honest, or even “a little” honest.
Should we even use modifiers with the word honest? I don’t believe so. There are no degrees of honesty. Either we are honest or we aren't.

+1, my wife and I were...the same. Very predictable movie.

I do as well (as evident by my avatar) but did not enjoy this one...
"The Minneapolis Lakers moved to Los Angeles where there are no lakes. The Oilers moved to Tennessee were there is no oil. The Jazz moved to Salt Lake City where they don't allow music. The Oakland Raiders moved to L.A. and then back to Oakland; no one in Los Angeles seemed to notice. Continued expansion diluted the talent pool, forcing owners to recruit heavily from prisons, mental institutions, and Texas."

I think a new release at BlockBuster is like $5, but smart people use the monthly plans... I pay $17/month through NetFlix and rent about 3 movies a week, which ends up being $1.41/each...

Wow, lots of negativity. My girlfriend and I loved the movie. Thought it was hilarious! Although, she does love Kate Hudson.

After seeing the trailer i would say you should completely forget that this movie ever existed. Two girls fighting over when and where their wedding will take place does not sound enjoyable................IMO.
Anne Hathaway is sessy, but just wait for Alice in Wonderland to get your fix.

I love Anne Hathaway as well. I was going to buy this just because she was in it, but decided to rent it first due to money at the time. It is worth a rental for fellow Anne Hathaway fans for sure, but I didn't enjoy it as much as I hoped I would.

Rent. Romantic comedies are usually the movies a lot of people have love/hate relationships with.

Well, it looks like I'll definitely be renting it. Thanks for the responses, everyone!

Oh man, I so can't wait for Alice in Wonderland myself, Riff Magnum! Her being in the movie is just one of three great things about it. The other two are Johnny Depp (as the Mad Hatter) and Tim Burton directing it! I know that Anne is supposed to be playing a Queen in Alice in Wonderland. But tell me, is she the Red Queen or the White Queen?
