Newcomer Bride Wars was a solid No. 2, with $21.5 mil, a totally expected take that's on par with the first-weekend figures for costar Kate Hudson's Fool's Gold ($21.6 mil) and You, Me & Dupree ($21.5 mil), as well as costar Anne Hathaway's The Princess Diaries ($22.9 mil) and The Princess Diaries 2 ($23 mil). Being the only film of its genre at the multiplex these days, and with an A- CinemaScore review from audiences, Bride Wars should also be hanging around for some time.
In addition to co-writing Bride Wars, Casey Wilson and June Raphael are also prominently featured in the film, as are fellow UCBTLA performers Jon Daly and Paul Scheer
