Jonathan Smith’s romantic-comedy Batsh*t Bride pulls an April Fools’ Day prank on the ultimate Bridezilla. All her life event planner Heather Papadopoulos (Meghan Falcone) has dreamed and planned her perfect wedding, and thanks to her wealthy father (Patrick Collins), money is no object. But poor groom Bryce (Josh Covitt) is feeling a little bit left out as Heather has been so consumed with her job and the wedding that she’s alienated herself from the world around her.
During her bachelorette party, her friends accuse Heather of not having a sense of humor, and that she takes everything too seriously. It’s April 1st, why not take advantage of the opportunity. To prove her friends wrong, Heather tells Bryce that she no longer loves Bryce and wants to cancel the wedding—as a prank. Unexpectedly, Bryce confesses that he feels the same way and agrees to end everything, and for him, it is not a prank.
“…Heather tells Bryce that she no longer loves Bryce and wants to cancel the wedding—as a prank.”
Rather than accept the reality of the situation, Heather proceeds with the wedding in hopes that the groom will change his mind at the last moment. It doesn’t help that family has traveled from Greece to be there or that all of Bryce’s friends and loved ones are relieved that Bryce is free and can be happy for once in his life.
Can Heather connive her way into the wedding of her dreams? Will Bryce succumb to her brash charm? Will the bride learn a little something about herself and change for the better? Can Heather find redemption and forgiveness from those she hurt by her selfishness?
