Movie Review by Jarrod
January 20th, 2008

The romantic comedy is among the stalest of movie genres, but it can work if you match the right actors with each other and supply them with decent dialogue. '27 Dresses' is not exceptional, it barely passes for mediocre, but Katherine Heigl and James Marsden look good together, and I actually was able to sit through it without being bored to tears. Heigl is simply radiant here, as wedding enthusiast Jane. She helps her friends plan their weddings, and happily serves as a bridesmaid, but secretly hopes to walk down the aisle herself one day. She really, really loves weddings. She is obsessed with them, and I guess this is something only a woman could be obsessed with. I hate weddings; I have only been to three in my whole life, and am not looking forward to the next one. Jane works for an ad executive named George (Ed Burns), whom she is in love with. She is never able to tell him though, and is heartbroken when her slutty sister Tess (Akerman) comes along and sweeps him off his feet. Then she meets Kevin (Marsden), who writes about weddings for the New York Times. He is interested in Jane, and wants to do a story on her. They don't seem to have much in common, but this of course means they are going to fall madly for one another. They are both attractive, charming people. Their chemistry is solid. So, it doesn't really matter that the movie itself is predictable and formulaic. It also is not terribly funny, and Akerman is as annoying here as she was in The Heartbreak Kid.
