In the midst of wedding planning, I decided it would be nice to take a break and watch one of my favorite chick flicks, 27 Dresses. Despite having all of the same cheesy romantic comedy moments, there is just something that I love about 27 Dresses.
Jane (Katherine Heigl) is the epitome of the saying, â€œAlways a bridesmaid, never a bride.â€ She has been in 27 weddings and has the dresses to prove it.
Additionally, Jane is in love with her boss, George (Edward Burns), who of course, is completely oblivious. Things take a turn for the worse when Janeâ€™s younger sister Tess (Malin Akerman) shows up for a visit and falls for George as well. However, Tess manipulates and lies about her life to be the perfect girl for George. Jane heartbrokenly watches all of this go down and is soon forced to plan their wedding.
Amongst all of the chaos and heartbreak in Janeâ€™s life, Kevin (James Marsden), a reporter, stumbles upon Jane and begins falling for her. However, she does not feel the same. It gets even worse when Jane finds out that heartless Kevin writes her favorite wedding column for the newspaper. Coincidentally, Kevin is now assigned to follow Tess and George around for a wedding feature, bringing Kevin closer to Jane who is still envious of Tess.
Stress filled commotion erupts in Janeâ€™s life when she freaks out over some of Tessâ€™s wedding choices and when Kevin plans to run an article about Janeâ€™s lengthy bridesmaid history. Thankfully, this is a chick flick and things get better but I wonâ€™t ruin the ending in case some of you have not seen this movie.
Iâ€™m not really sure why I enjoy this movie so much. Perhaps itâ€™s the karaoke Bennie and the Jets bar scene and the cuteness of James Marsden. Or the excitement the girls have over planning weddings.
Regardless, 27 Dresses is definitely a chick flick. I donâ€™t think guys would be able to sit through the whole move so plan a girlâ€™s night!
