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.

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…
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.
Meta. Pompous. Groovy.
Improves on the original in a lot of ways.
+ It's a giant reference to Bride of Frankenstein
+ The poster is a reference to Scream 2
+ References the Chucky franchise itself
+ Having a gay character in a horror film
+ Tiffany's feminism comments
+ Jennifer Tilly
It took me half the movie before I realized I've seen this before. I had forgotten ever seeing it. Somewhat of a solid sequel in a franchise. I guess you could call it a reboot for the series.
A innocent looking doll with a sadistic mindset
A gothic, romantic, road trip horror movie. The best in a franchise despite being four entries deep. Essentially, this is the benchmark we should all aspire to in our lives.
Really like the interactions between Jennifer Tilly and Brad Dourif early in the film, but the romantic leads are really awful. There's a lot of post-Scream meta-dialogue that hasn't aged well too.
Why did I just watch this.
Tiffany Valentine is such #goals
