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

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.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars 'ALLWAYS A BRIDESMAID BUT NEVER THE BRIDE ? 31 May 2014
By rbmusicman TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
When i first saw this movie advertised i thought 'chick-flick' and had little interest in watching it, however a friend actually recommended a viewing, so I did buy and view around 5/6 years back now
The story is about 'Jane' ( played by 'Katherine Heigl') who works in an office, she has a 'crush' on her boss 'George' who only see's 'Jane' as a friend and a great organiser.
Her skills as an organiser promt's her many friends, in turn, to sort their wedding plans for them, also she is invited over and over again to be a 'Bridesmaid' ( she keeps the dresses and the count is totting up )
At one of the weddings at which she is again 'Bridesmaid' she meets 'Kevin' (James Marsden) who is a journalist covering 'Weddings'
Strangely for some time after their first meet 'Kevin' seems to be at every function she attends, how could that be ?
'Jane' see's 'Kevin' as an irritating inclusion in her life.
At one function attended by 'Jane' her younger sister 'Tess' makes a 'B-Line' for 'George' much to 'Jane's' dismay her boss responds to her sister's advances.
Will 'Jane' allway's be a 'bridesmaid' and never a bride ?
This film is a cut above the run of the mill movies of it's type.
It's funny with a few hint's of sadness on occasions, in short a pleasant movie, well worth a glance.

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...
