As you might recall, I’m not exactly a fan of the wedding industry and the whole “every single woman is a crazy bridezilla waiting to happen!” thing. Which is why (a) I will not be going to see the awful looking Bride Wars and (b) I loved Dodai on Jezebel’s post (based on this piece in the Washington Post about the dreadful way brides are portrayed on film).
These movies are never about love, or how a man and a woman have decided to spend the rest of their lives together, and long to celebrate this decision with their closest friends and family. These flicks are always about how the female brain goes haywire when she gets a “big day” to be the center of attention.
So true. Which is why this weekend I’ll be curled up on the couch rewatching His Girl Friday and wondering why there were better roles for women in 1940 than in 2009.
