Movie Review: 27 Dresses

I watched 27 Dresses and The Other Boleyn Girl! I will review 27 Dresses now.

Katherine Heigl plays Jane, who is hopelessly in love with her boss, without him knowing about it, of course. I knew Heigl from the Roswell series and she’s absolutely beautiful and funny, so I guess 27 Dresses would be worth watching. Well, parts of it, actually. I like Judy Greer’s character, too. She’s entertaining.

Anyway, back to Jane. Jane loves weddings and she is sincere in helping brides on their wedding day. She makes sure that everything goes smoothly during the wedding so it’ll definitely be a happy day for the newly-weds.

At one wedding, a reporter, Kevin/Malcolm notices Jane leaving the wedding in a taxi and starts changing in the taxi too. Truth is, Jane is attending two weddings at the same time! It’s unbelievable at how she does it but in the end, she must be quite exhausted that she passed out at one of the weddings. That’s when she first talked to Kevin/Malcolm.

I write Kevin/Malcolm because he uses both names in the movie. He tells Jane his name is Kevin Doyle when he’s actually Malcolm Doyle. By the way, Jane hates him. But if she hates him, why would she wear all her 27 bridesmaid dresses and parade in front of him? That’s when he takes pictures of her and puts them to good use.

Oh, I forgot about Tess, Jane’s younger sister. Tess catches the eye of Jane’s boss and to Jane’s fury and agony, they plan to get married! Life for her is just falling apart. It’s quite pitiful for her since the man she loves is in love with her little sister. Well, she didn’t tell him about her feelings in the first place, so it’s not anyone’s fault except hers.

All the same, 27 Dresses is pretty worth your ticket money. Girls can enjoy drooling over James Marsden and do watch out for Jane’s friend’s role played by Judy Greer!
