Yes, it is another typical rom/com, you know exactly where it is going to go and how it is going to end. However it wasn't all that bad, I think thanks to some really nice performances from Katherine Heigl and James Marsden (Who is really adorable I might add). 27 Dresses tells the story of Jane, who loves weddings and has been a bridesmaid 27 times (That's where we get the 27 Dresses from) but then things get complicated when her younger sister (Malin Akermand) starts to see her boss (Edward Burns) who she is in love with. Add to the mix Kevin (James Marsden) who Jane meets and then finds out writes the wedding announcements she loves. So yeah that is the basic storyline, there are a few laughs, some nice moments, not a bad chick flick. I found Malin Akerman really annoying, no matter what, I could not stand her, I hope she has not ruined Watchmen. The character of George played by Edward Burns I think needed to be fleshed out a bit more, he didn't seem like anything special, in the way that Jane saw him. The montage with all the 27 Dresses was actually well done, and all the designs were actually really clever. This is more of a DVD film, unless you are really into chick flicks then wait for DVD.
