Movie Review by Jessica Film Junkie
February 16th, 2008

Heigl Great, Burns Not So Much

Favorite Movie Quote: "I feel like I just found out that my favorite love song was written about a sandwich."

Katherine Heigl is on the road to becoming the next Julia Roberts, or at least a sort of Drew Barrymore-Cameron Diaz mutt. After years of parts in lesser known fare (and the great TV series 'Roswell'), she broke through with 'Grey's Anatomy' and became a star with 'Knocked up'. Now it is all about maintaining that momentum and '27 Dresses' is her first headlining role, all by herself. Luckily, she is incredibly charming, sincere and likable and therefore this fluffy rom-com is pretty easy to watch.

In fact, all the scenes with Heigl and James Marsden, as her love interest, are fun, but whenever the film switches to the bland engagement of her sister (yawn-worthy Malin Akerman) and her boss (Ed Burns, sleeping through the film) the film loses its stride. Luckily the always great Judy Greer shows up as Heigl's best buddy and gives us some comic heft (much as she did in '13 Going on 30'...and 'The Wedding Planner'...will someone give her a starring role already?).

The movie isn't terribly memorable, although the idea is interesting and somewhat creative, but it is a big of fun and cheer to get us through these cold months.
