Bride of Chucky
Chucky Gets Lucky.
Chucky hooks up with another murderous doll, the bridal gown-clad Tiffany, for a Route 66 murder spree with their unwitting hosts.
I have no time for people who don't like this masterpiece.
Let me put it this way. If this were a movie, it would take three or four sequels to do it justice.
After the rushed Child's Play 3 ended up mediocre to say the least, the franchise took 7 years off before returning with a new film. Writer/Chucky-caretaker Don Mancini decided to bring back the camp tone from Child's Play 2 and turn it up to 11 while doing his own take on a horror classic. All looked great, but unfortunately they cast Katherine Heigl.
While Bride of Chucky isn't quite as bad as I had remembered it to be, it really isn't very good either. I am actually quite surprised at how much better Seed of Chucky was in comparison.
It was like opening a box which doubled as a time capsule between the fashions and the music; I was taken back to my high school days as Rob Zombie, Stabbing Westward and Monster Magnet were on the soundtrack. All I was missing was a Tea Party t-shirt, a glass bottle of Snapple, ball-chain choker and my black, shiny airwalks. (Gross)
Bride of Chucky lacked the lighthearted humor of Seed... and didn't posses any of the creepiness of the first two Child's Play films.
Although, it should be said that Jennifer Tilly was as beautiful and entertaining as ever.
Jesse: So how... how did you end up like this?
Chucky: Well, it's a long story...
Tiffany: It sure is.
Chucky: In fact, if it was a movie it would take 3 or 4 sequels just to do it justice.
Different in tone from the previous three films in the franchise. It's more darkly comedic than the other ones. Not that those weren't like that but this one really pushes the self-referential humor. Chucky talks a lot. I like Brad Dourif's voice but I'd prefer if Chucky would resume to swearing and screaming weird incantations. This is a decent horror comedy once you accept the fact that it doesn't take itself too seriously.
The smartest decision the people behind the Child's Play franchise ever made was adding Jennifer Tilly to it. Her camp appeal takes the world of Chucky to a whole new level of fabulousness.
Continuing the Child's Play franchise with the fourth film, that leases new life into the series with a tonal shift into something much more cheesy and dumb, having the knock-on effect of it being a bit more entertaining also.
The Child's Play trilogy felt like it had untapped comedy potential and Bride of Chucky finally embraces this by making the film a self-aware, hammy, slasher-comedy. It's not a full on laugh out loud sort of film, but it is consistently schlocky and campy, lending a much appreciated fun tone to the film.
The film balances its cheesiness and actual slasher elements very well, never feeling too serious or too dumb. Jennifer Tilly's performance as the titular Bride is very campy…
Cool soundtrack. And Jennifer Tilly ugh <3
Distinctly recall this one ; cause i bragged like half a hour about it to my 6-7 grade class mates friends.
what ca i say, a classic.
Having Jennifer Tilly do the voiceover for a slutty white trash doll is a little bit better than Melania Trump's speech writer or a Gilbert Godfried spoken word album.
I dig watching Chucky rock out to white zombie.
Oh and the best part is they show the dolls fucking!
Hat mir schon wieder deutlich besser gefallen als Teil 3. Wieder mehr Härte drinnen, ein super Ende und nebenbei ein ziemlich geiler Soundtrack.
La primera entrega de la serie, El muñeco diabólico (Child's Play, 1988), brotó de la torpe narrativa de Tom Holland (Noche de miedo), quien destrozaba una no por conocida menos simpática idea por medio de un enfático estilo que se pretendía ceremonial -eso lo pueden hacer con convicción los directores arriba citados, no él-; dos secuelas, Muñeco diabólico 2 (Child's Play 2, 1990), de John Lafia -co-guionista de la primera-, y Child's Play 3 [vd: Muñeco diabólico 3, 1991], de Jack Bender, equilibraban mejor aspiraciones y resultados, suponiendo simpáticas y nada pretenciosas entregas de serie B. Ahora, cuando parecía que el personaje quedaba olvidado, regresa Chucky; y con una novia.

This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
How could Bride of Chucky possibly be any good? Well, it can't...and it isn't. To be fair, it is quite a step up from the dismal Child's Play 2 and Child's Play 3 but, really, that isn't saying a whole lot.
By now, I think we are all familiar with this series of horror flicks about serial killer Charles Lee Ray and his adventures as an evil soul trapped in the body of a grotesque little doll. And in this fourth film of the series, our friend Chucky is repaired and reanimated by his long ago girlfriend Tiffany, played by loopy Jennifer Tilly, with the help of some sewing prowess and the self-help book "Voodoo For Dummies".
Anyway, the couple…
The only chucky movie i remember seeing and honestly i prefer it when he's chasing the kid than the amulet storyline.There were some meta horror moments that were cool and i didn't completely hate this installment.
