dresses centers on Jane (Katherine
Heigl), an idealistic, romantic and completely selfless woman… a perennial
bridal attendant whose own happy ending is nowhere in sight. But when younger
sister Tess captures the heart of Jane's boss – with whom she is secretly
in love – Jane begins to reexamine her "always-a-bridesmaid…" lifestyle.
Jane has always been good at taking care of others, but not so much in looking
after herself. Her entire life has been about making people happy – and
she has a closet full of 27 bridesmaid dresses to prove it. One memorable
evening, Jane manages to shuttle between wedding receptions in Manhattan
and Brooklyn, a feat witnessed by Kevin (James Marsden), a newspaper reporter
who realizes that a story about this wedding junkie is his ticket off the
newspaper's bridal beat.
Jane finds Kevin's cynicism contrary to everything she holds dear – namely
weddings, and the two lock horns. Further complicating Jane's once perfectly-ordered
life is the arrival of younger sister Tess (Malin Akerman). Tess immediately
captures the heart of Jane's boss, George (Edward Burns). Tess enlists her
always-accommodating sister to plan yet another wedding – Tess and George's
– but Jane's feelings for him lead to shocking revelations… and maybe the
beginning of a new life.
about Katherine Heigl at her official
Movie review found on Amazon.com, "Katherine
Heigl is delightful as Jane, a self-effacing Gal Friday so addicted
to organizing weddings in her off time, that 27 Dresses opens with
her character juggling two nuptials on the same night. A perpetual
bridesmaid, Jane's hobby is discovered by a matrimony reporter named
Kevin (James Marsden), who hides a romantic side behind his wall
of cynicism. While Kevin gradually develops feelings for Jane, the
latter's superficial sister, Tess (Malin Akerman), pursues George
(Edward Burns), Jane's boss and the object of her love. This romantic
circle could go on forever, except that Jane is unexpectedly moved
by Kevin despite her general irritation with him and without knowing
that he's on the verge of sandbagging her with a ridiculing article
in his newspaper. The situation is absurd, but the emotions are
not. Heigl is very good, rooted in a long tradition of comely comediennes
playing characters who fly under the radar of life. She makes Jane's
pain palpable and conveys her character's inability to say no without
making her look unappealing or weak. Marsden perfectly captures
the part of a rumpled, underdressed writer with repressed passions,
Akerman is as convincingly shrewish here as she was in The Heartbreak
Kid, and Burns is fine as one of those guys so busy saving the world
he barely pays attention to the people in his life. The script by
Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada) is fun if predictable,
and Anne Fletcher's direction is vibrant. --Tom Keogh"
