This film isn't just for Girls -it isn't just for Women; fellows that think females are silly and exasperating but find them adorable anyway will get a kick out of this very well produced and directed fast paced story about working girl Katherine Heigl, now a bridesmaid for 27 Brides, and still yearning to be a Bride especially with her present employer as the Groom. Then, her gorgeous sister comes back home to visit with their beloved Dad and everything falls apart for her plans. You get to see the 27 dresses and they are colorfully awful and wonderfully bad designs. Of course on Katherine anything looks good, and she is such a devout believer in romance that she makes the outfits shine. Plus she has saved them all in her bulging closet. This is a witty, well- observed slice of life film (and those are hard to find). Fine cast, engaging and attractive - I thought the columnist reporter fellow who finds her a "hoot" & eventually fascinating doesn't seem that suited to Katherine's character. Ah, well, who knows why anyone is attracted to whomever they get attracted to...?

I saw this movie on TV and loved it. The TV channel played the movie twice - back to back. I loved the movie so much I watched the second showing and loved it just as much as the first time I saw it!

See This With Your Girlfriends
Gizmo | 02/15/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"C''s not rocket science and it's not meant to be. After a week of having husbands and kids drive us crazy, my best friend and I ran away from home to see this and agreed we hadn't laughed so hard in months! We laughed the whole way through. Mission accomplished...escapism at its best! Katherine Heigl is adorable in this and hey, for us harried mothers, just getting to watch Ed Burns and James Marsden for 90 minutes is worth the ticket (or DVD) price alone. They're pretty yummy to watch! Leave the husband/boyfriends at home for this one and have a girls' night out. Guys don't get the humor in watching Jane hold her friends' wedding dresses when they have to pee at their wedding receptions. Girls get it. The writing is witty with plenty of hilarious one-liners. Jane is everyone's best friend and you'll wish she was one of yours, too. This DVD will get added to my collection of predictable romantic comedies because it can hold its own with the best of them!"
It's a surprising feel-good film

"Jane (Katherine Heigl) has loved weddings ever since she was a little girl and helped set her cousin's wedding to rights. She's dreamed of the day she'll walk down the aisle to see that delighted expression on her intended husband's face.

George (Edward Burns) is the man Jane always hoped would be at the other end of the aisle. He's Jane's boss and an entrepreneur who made his millions selling the kind of outdoor equipment he loves to use. He's a gentle soul, a selfless vegetarian who loves dogs and serves as a Big Brother to a great Hispanic kid named Pedro.

Jane's getting practice for that big day. So far, she's been a bridesmaid at 27 weddings. That's 27 dresses in her apartment front closet--none she will ever wear again...well, none anyone should have had to wear in the first place.

Enter Tess (Malin Akeman), Jane's baby sister. She and George fall in love at first sight when Tess comes for a 2-week sisterly visit. Of course, George proposes and Tess accepts. But, Tess isn't quite what she's leading George to believe. She doesn't like dogs. She eats meat, and she's turning George's little brother into her personal cleaning service.

And Jane--who is both jealous of her little sister and concerned about the lies Tess is telling to 'get her man' has to put the wedding together. Add to that the complication of Kevin (James Marsden), the bridal column journalist, who is following both Jane's career as a bridesmaid and amateur wedding planner and Tess's wedding.

"27 Dresses" is a heartwarming and funny film that's both a good date movie and suitable for pre-teens. In my opinion, Ms. Heigl is showing versatility as an actress playing the sweet romantic heroine in "27 Dresses" and the hapless accidental mother in "Knocked up." She's steering a course similar to Johnny Depp's, in that she's selecting a variety of parts that won't leave her typecast.

Light & Breezy & Lots of Fun

"If you're a fan of weddings you'll laugh along to the affectionate pokings and proddings that 27 Dresses takes at the wedding industry. If you hate them, you'll like the potshots it takes. Depending on how you feel about weddings, you'll either see them through Kevin's (James Mardsen) eyes or through Jane's (Katherine Heigl) but both points-of-view are represented equally in this delightful time waster.

"The Wedding Party" is a fairly standard making of featurette that mixes clips from the film, behind-the-scenes footage, and soundbites from the cast and crew. Everyone gushes about each other. It's a light and breezy extra, much like the film itself.

"You'll Never Wear That Again!" takes a look at the hideous bridesmaid dresses from the film. The director told wardrobe to find the ugliest dresses and succeeded. The various themed weddings are also discussed in this engaging and fun extra.

"Jane's World" examines the production design and how they made Rhode Island look like New York City (?!). A lot of research was done on weddings in order to capture the distinct look of each one.

"The Running of the Brides" is an annual tradition that sees women from all over the country camping out at a store where they all try to get the perfect dress to get married in. It's a shopping frenzy as people race around to get a dress or trade with others.

Also included are three deleted scenes. The first one sees Jane trying to get a cab in New York (good luck) and was wisely cut. The best of the bunch sees Jane, her best friend (Judy Greer) and Tess' best friend trying on bridesmaid dresses. The interaction between the three of them is amusing. Finally, there is a scene where Jane and Tess retrieve George's dog from a pound which seems out of place in the film and was also wisely cut."
