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.

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.

At the age of eight, Jane (Katherine Heigl) realized her calling. Being very helpful at a wedding, she realized that she was fascinated with being an integral part of weddings. We meet her as she is functioning as a bridesmaid at two different weddings on the same night. That night she also stumbles upon a writer. However, what she does not know is that this writer who seems very cynical is actually the one that writes articles that she collects about weddings.

You can see how everything is being set up for a formula movie. The producers tried to give the characters more depth than most of these formula movies where there is always a love triangle of some sort. And of course, the writer has to put his foot into it somewhere right at the most inopportune time we know this is coming. However, the thing that makes the movie fascinating is how they get from point A to point Z, and all the people and points in between.

So enjoy the movie and enjoyed the quirkiness of seeing 27 dresses but do not expect anything extraordinary.

I saw the Blu-Ray version; by now, of course Blu-Ray is blasé. So there isn't anything exceptional to say about this and the movie extras are goodies are the standard how did we make this why did we make this what did we do type things which gives a little bit of insight but not enough to make the movie any more interesting.

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.
