27 Dresses

Katherine Heigl, James Marsden, Malin Akerman, Edward Burns

Heigl plays Jane, who has been a bridesmaid 27 times. She meets Kevin Doyle who writes a newspaper wedding column. Surely he must love weddings as much as she does. No, he is cynical and jaded and they couldn’t possibly be meant for each other.

Jane believes she is meant to be with her boss, George. But when Jane’s sister arrives in town she falls for George. They decide to get married, throwing Jane off course – she can’t possible be a bridesmaid again!

Judy Greer is pretty funny as Jane’s best friend – every good romantic comedy needs a funny best friend. Often, I actually like the best friend better (eg Krysten Ritter) because she is usually a bit more edgy.

This movie comes close to fitting into my Top Ten – it’s harmless, it’s a little funny, it’s as light as air, and Heigl is charming. Don’t overthink it.
