The Bride Wars Challenge Revisited

In September, I mentioned the pledge made by film critic Mark Kermode that, in the event that this year there are ten films released in 2009 that are worse than Bride Wars, he would give up film criticism.

Mark's original list of four suggestions – Transformers 2, Marley & Me, Dance Flick and Charles Dickens’ England –has been updated with a fifth, Miss March: Generation Penetration (a film I confess I have never even heard of). In addition, Mark offers another than may only be as bad, rather than genuinely worse, than Bride Wars - the lamentable Vince Vaughan/Jon Favreau flick Couples Retreat.

Fantastic plot summary from 'anon' on's got it all; coma, road trip,'sex crazed' male friend and Hugh Hefner.. How could anyone have missed this gem..? It had a release date in September.

Oh, and that Couples Retreat just looks so dire. And yes, Vince Vaughan and Jon Favreau of Swingers fame (great film).... How far they have fallen...

Marley and Me.... jeepers creepers!!
