A Bridesmaid’s Tale
Romantic comedies are almost always predictable and follow similar story lines. I wasn’t very keen on watching ’27 Dresses’. Let’s just say it’s not my kind of film. But it turned out to be not too bad. While it does not exactly rank among the best of its genre, it has its own charm and that’s one of the few things that make a romantic comedy likable. While the story isn’t new, McKeena’s writing offers some new devices and the dialogues are quite funny. Fletcher’s storytelling is quite impressive too as he introduces the characters and then lets the events unfold. The layered characters Jane and Kevin are very real. I also like it when the leads are played by good actors who have hardly attempted to do films romantic comedies in the past and they manage to pull it off. Heigl and Marsden have the required chemistry. Both actors do a fine job. Katherine Heigl brings out the depth of her character with ease, while James Marsden is funny without going over-the-top. The sizzling Malin Akerman does well as the obnoxious Tess. Edward Burns’s role doesn’t require much but he’s okay. Judy Greer is brilliant and she owns all her scenes. So what makes ’27 Dresses’ watchable is the chemistry between the actors, the funny lines, the presentation of the story, a nice soundtrack and its unique charm and sense of humour and the fact that it didn’t bore me.
Harmless, but pointless date movie
If you’ve seen “Runaway Bride,” My Best Friend’s Wedding,” “In Her Shoes” and/or “While You Were Sleeping,” then there’s really no point in seeing this newest romantic comedy, “27 Dresses,” starring Katherine Heigl (“The Ringer,” “Knocked Up,” the TV series “Grey’s Anatomy”).
Bits and pieces of all the aforementioned films – as well as a few I have omitted – are culled to cobble together this tale of Jane (Heigl), sweet, innocent, long-suffering and a patsy. The term “always-the-bridesmaid” has never been more appropriate, as she has 27 ugly bridesmaids’ dresses (hence the title) in her closet – one for every cheesy theme wedding she has attended.
Jane works for George (Edward Burns, “One Missed Call”), an environmentally-friendly, but hopelessly-naive boss who seems to be the only one in the office (or in the City of New York, for that matter), who cannot tell that Jane is totally in love with him.
Unfortunately, for this fledgling love affair, Jane’s pretty, but self-centered sister, Tess (Malin Akerman, “The Heartbreak Kid,” The Brothers Solomon”), enters the picture and sweeps George off his goofy feet.
While all of this is going on, Jane is practically being stalked by Kevin (James Marsden, “Superman Returns,” the “X-Men” films), a wedding writer for a large New York publication. Assigned to cover Tess and George’s nuptials (for SOME reason), he instead turns his attention to Jane and the fact she has been a bridesmaid 27 times.
When all of these situations collide, we’re supposed to be amused, but I was just bored, having seen this plot (or variations of this plot) many times before.
Katherine Heigl is certainly a beautiful actress, and her Jane is very sweet and pure here, but she is not a strong enough lead to carry even this lightweight premise. She’s no Julia Roberts; she’s no Cameron Diaz; she’s not even a Sandra Bullock.
Playing opposite comedians such as Johnny Knoxville and Seth Rogan was fine – since she was more of a supporting character – but here, she is the main cog of the movie, and it’s a bit too much for her. There are some scenes in which she is just there to look sad or hurt or angry or rejected, and not an integral part of the action.
I also thought the love affair was forced upon us because it was expected. A twist at the conclusion would have been nice. Still overall, the movie is harmless and inoffensive, and will bring out all of the women (and many of their dates) who do not want to see “Cloverfield” at the cinaplexes over the next few weeks.
