From Amazon.co.uk

Katherine Heigl is delightful as Jane, a self-effacing Gal Friday so addicted to organizing weddings in her off time, that 27 Dresses opens with her character juggling two nuptials on the same night. A perpetual bridesmaid, Jane’s hobby is discovered by a matrimony reporter named Kevin (James Marsden), who hides a romantic side behind his wall of cynicism. While Kevin gradually develops feelings for Jane, the latter’s superficial sister, Tess (Malin Akerman), pursues George (Edward Burns), Jane’s boss and the object of her love. This romantic circle could go on forever, except that Jane is unexpectedly moved by Kevin despite her general irritation with him and without knowing that he’s on the verge of sandbagging her with a ridiculing article in his newspaper. The situation is absurd, but the emotions are not.

Heigl is very good, rooted in a long tradition of comely comediennes playing characters who fly under the radar of life. She makes Jane’s pain palpable and conveys her character’s inability to say no without making her look unappealing or weak. Marsden perfectly captures the part of a rumpled, underdressed writer with repressed passions, Akerman is as convincingly shrewish here as she was in The Heartbreak Kid, and Burns is fine as one of those guys so busy saving the world he barely pays attention to the people in his life. The script by Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada) is fun if predictable, and Anne Fletcher’s direction is vibrant. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

Upbeat romcom about a woman who's always the bridesmaid, never the bride. Jane Nichols (Katherine Heigl) has led a selfless, romantic life, always putting others needs first and herself last, especially when it comes to marriage. With 27 bridesmaid dresses in her cupboard, Jane is beginning to see a pattern developing. Scuttling between receptions one evening, she's spotted by a cynical local reporter (James Marsden) who sees her story as the ideal vehicle to move up the career ladder. But when her younger sister, Tess (Malin Akerman), makes moves on her boss, George (Edward Burns), who she secretly adores, Jane finally realises it's time to grab her life by the horns before it's too late.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a laugh-a-minute but sweet, feel-good fun. 2 Jun 2008
Format:DVD
27 dresses is your typical chick-flick scenario: Heigl plays terminally single Jane, who juggles both a secret but long-standing love for her boss, George, and selflessly filling her spare time with helping organise her friends' weddings. But when her selfish and flighty younger sister gets involved with George and announces their engagement, Jane's endurance is really challenged. She finds herself struggling with her emotions while trying to organise her sister's wedding to the man she loves- and something has to give. Meanwhile, a gorgeous but cynical wedding writer, Kevin, becomes interested in Jane first professionally, and then romantically. But meeting Jane will prove the toughest test of Kevin's scruples.

Heigl and Marsden provide great on-screen chemistry as Jane and Kevin, each teaching the other something about themselves that they never knew, and the film really is poignant for this. Heigl inspires the right mixture of pity and admiration as Jane and Marsden is so effortlessly appealing as Kevin. My only quibble with the movie was that there could have been more laughs, but then, in the funny moments, the humour was intelligent and subtle. Every bit a credible, refreshing take on the chick-flick.

3.0 out of 5 stars AN AVERAGE ROMANTIC COMEDY 4 Feb 2009
Format:DVD
As a bit of a fan of romantic comedies I bought this on the chance I'd enjoy it. Settled down one night to watch it and got about half way through the story of Jane the quintisential role model for the phrase 'Always the bridesmaid, never the bride'.

As Jane spends most Saturday's acting in the capacity of bridesmaid for a collection of very varied brides at their themed weddings it then comes as a bit of a shock when her own dream wedding to her boss who she is secretly in love with turns out to be happening only she won't be the bride, her sister will. Suddenly Jane finds herself having to organise the weddig of her sister to the man she loves. In comes James Marsdens character Kevin, a reporter for the New York Times who quite fittingly writes the weddings section, reporting on the nuptuals of New York.

I must admit at this point of watching it I got a bit bored and gave up but faithfully around a week later I decided to pick it up again and was very glad I did. The second half of the film is much better than the first 40 minutes as we see Jane & Kevin's relationship begin to build and as we watch Jane put her pushy little sister in her place. The scene with Kevin & Jane singing Benny & The Jets in the bar is wonderful.

Would I watch it again, yes - is it as good as some other offerings out there no but okay.

3.0 out of 5 stars Flawed, but very watchable. 26 Oct 2008
Format:DVD
I enjoyed this movie enough to give it 4 stars despite the shortcomings I'm going to mention below: the plot is OK, but poorly executed either by the script or by the direction - I can't decide which. There's a corny flashback which sets up the story of Jane discovering her vocation in life - to help other people get married, and so avoid living for herself -which is just not convincing enough. Neither is the diabolical denouement - what, oh what possesses writers to put their characters through an embarrassing and totally gratuitous public declaration of undying affection? I don't know that the story-telling is convincing either - the hero isn't likeable enough, and there isn't enough depth to his character and I'm not convinced that there's a 'happily ever after' for these two characters - so in the end I didn't get the 'feel good buzz'.
Having said that I thought Katherine Heigl was great, her ditsy sister and her boss are just wonderful! If you can suspend belief just a little more than I could you'll probably love this film. For me, despite the flaws there was enough for it to be good movie, just not a great movie!

By Mark Barry HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
Promptly replacing almost every female actress out there as the people's new 'Meg Ryan' - Katherine Heigl seems to excel at this fluffy rom-com material. Will pretty but plain Jane (the eternal Bridesmaid) ever be a Bride of her own?

"27 Dresses" has a clever story (a sort of "The Wedding Planner" 2) - a warm heart - and the laughs aren't too cringing either. For the ladies - handsome James Marsden brings that Mark Ruffalo 'gruff everyman' touch to a lot of the scenes - injecting them with a healthy dose of reality and scepticism. There's even chemistry between the two leads and their sheer likeability carries the whole thing through to the usual soul-searching tear-soaked microphone confessional on a boat at the end...

However - should you opt to buy the 'US' BLU RAY - don't - it's REGION A LOCKED and therefore won't play on our machines unless they're chipped for 'all regions' (which few are). Opt for the cheap-as-chips UK version (Region B) and you can enjoy a ruffle in a frock as many times as you like...

4.0 out of 5 stars Pack this for the hen weekend. 8 Oct 2010
By Mrs. Katharine Kirby TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
This film was unexpectedly touching. It was fun seeing Jane being so very amenable, useful, kind and fair to her Bride friends. What follows is of course a farce already written in the stars but all the more relaxing and pleasing for it. I loved seeing the 27 dresses themselves and felt as if I were attending the many happy occasions as they whirled by. All the characters seemed to be believable and appealing, and there were moments of fun - especially the Benny and the Jets sequence. Escape from the ordinary for the duration, suspend critique, sometimes corny and predictable is just what you need.
