This is for the 2015 (1st) edition of the list. For the 2016 (2nd) edition, go here.
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.

Bride of Chucky is a film of two segment..
First segment - what I called the Jennifer Tilly part, was brilliant! Tilly is funny, charming, charismatic and is not bad on the eyes, her interactions with Chucky where good and entertaining, even when the shit hit the fan there was a certain back and forth with Brad Dourif that worked perfectly.
Second segment - the Katherine Heigl part, it brought the momentum of the film down, it took away from the main…
I like the addition of Jennifer Tilly to this franchise. It's more of the same. Look for a young Katharine Hiegl and John Ritter.
Some fans don't like this one, and more power to em. I fucking love Bride of Chucky! In terms of revitalizing the franchise, this is the Fast Five of the Chucky movies. Ronny Yu brings a fresh horror/comedy feel to the series, and even better, Chucky is now at the forefront, and the human characters are more of a subplot. We're also introduced to Tiffany, who I think is an AWESOME character, and the banter and chemistry between Brad Dourif and Jennifer Tilly is crazy good! This movie is so much fun! It's hilarious, it's bloody, it's wacky, and while it's not the best movie of the bunch, for me it's the most re-watchable.
One of my favs besides the first one. I seriously it's classic!😈
And you thought 'Team America' was you're only film to get you're fix of doll sex scenes, think again.
Halloween wasn't the only horror franchise to come out of retirement in the late 90's, Child's Play also took a stab at scaring up a new generation of teen audiences as well as trying to regenerate that box office success. Re-branding and removing the 'Child's Play' title was probably a good thing in the long run, putting Chucky in the name and pushing what's popular about the series into the forefront is a no brainer, but looking back at it and having given it a re-watch that's pretty much the only thing they did get right.
I thought I remember quite…
just never a fan of this film, It's over the top nature and anti-hero vibes that Chucky gave off just wasn't appealing.
It's Child's Play for the Britney Spears generation and it falls flat
Je l'avais vu en 1998, je le revois pour la première fois près de 20 ans plus tard.
Je gardais un bon souvenir du film, ayant trouvé en 1998 que ce 4e volet parvenait à dépoussiérer le sujet et à le rendre d'actualité sans trahir le concept.
Ce revisionnement m'a laissé plutôt mitigé. J'aime bien les premières 50 minutes, plutôt rigolotes et bien réalisées par Ronny Yu. Ensuite, j'ai eu l'impression que le scénario faisait du surplace et que l'ensemble devenait nettement plus laborieux. Le film perd de l'énergie, et les développements amusants qui se succédaient jusque là s'interrompent au profit d'un récit de plus en plus conventionnel.
Certaines répliques deviennent très faciles : on les prévoit et elles ne…

This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
This movie is so much fun. If you are looking for a rehash of the originals, do not look here. This is pure comedy. Jennifer Tilly is amazing. When she is human, she has the best lines. Mama taught her a ton, what a prophet that woman was.
Did you ever think you needed to two dolls get it on? No? Well, You don't, but this movie will give it to you! That was a spoiler... my bad.
