"27 Dresses" on BLU RAY - Compatibility Issues On The `US' Disc...,
This review is from: 27 Dresses [Blu-ray]  [US Import] (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...
