That’s how many weddings that Jane (Katherine Heigl) has been a bridesmaid and she has 27 dresses in her closet to prove it. If Always the Bridesmaid never the Bride were a person it’d be her. She loves weddings and wants one of her own someday. She has sights set on her boss. That is until her little sister comes to town and ruins everything by stealing Jane’s dream guy away from her.
Kevin (James Marsden) loathes weddings as much as Jane loves them. Too bad his job is as a Commitments reporter meaning that weddings unfortunately are his thing. When he runs into her at a wedding, her second of the night, he discovers her chronic bridesmaid status and wants to right a cover story on her in the hopes of being able to move beyond Commitments and onto something more meaningful. He pencils himself into her life to do just that, and in typical rom-com, they fall head over heels for each other…eventually.
James Marsden as always is so fun to watch and the best part of the movie. The best scene was the montage of her trying on all 27 dresses and modeling them for Kevin tied with them getting drunk and singing on top of the bar. The worst scene of the entire movie was Jane’s witch of a younger sister cutting up their mother’s wedding dress knowing that Jane wanted it for her wedding day.
Some conversations featuring sexual exploits and how to score with bridesmaids and groomsmen occur throughout the movie and add nothing to the story other to show that Jane and Kevin’s friends are sexually loose indivuals. There’s one kinda-sorta sex scene in the back of a car. Kevin and Jane make-out and try to undress each other. You see nothing else. Language includes Shit, Misuse of Gods name, Bitch, Hell, One partial M-effer, Ass, Asshole, Whore, damn, and dammit.
This movie was so much fun! I loved it and wished I watched it sooner. Another Rom-com to add to the favorites list! You can rent 27 Dresses on iTunes or Amazon.
