Summary: A single woman who has served as a bridesmaid a shocking 27 times wrestles with the prospect of supporting her sister at the altar on number 28, despite having fallen helplessly in love with her smitten sibling's handsome husband-to-be. Jane (Katherine Heigl) has the kind of altruistic traits that everyone looks for in a friend, yet lately the perennial bridesmaid has begun to feel as if something is missing in her life. One night, local newspaper reporter Kevin (James Marsden) spots the devoted bridal attendant racing between receptions in Manhattan and Brooklyn, and quickly surmises that her quirky tale may be just the story to get him off the bridal beat and into the big time. Immediately suspicious of the cynical reporter's motivations, Jane butts heads with Kevin just as her younger sister Tess (Malin Akerman) shows up in town. While Jane has always put the needs of friends and family before her own wants and desires, she's suddenly prompted to reevaluate her priorities when her boss -- with whom she is secretly in love -- falls for her younger sister Tess. When Tess and Jane's boss George (Edward Burns) make plans to marry, the smitten younger sibling mistakenly assumes that her lovelorn older sibling will be happy to take part in the wedding. For as far back as Jane can remember, she has sacrificed her own happiness for the sake of those she holds dearest, but now that her heart has been broken, she's finally found the courage to be honest with herself. Now, as Jane finally comes to terms with her true feelings, her life begins to change in ways she never expected. Judy Greer and Melora Hardin co-star in a romantic comedy scripted by The Devil Wears Prada screenwriter Aline Brosh McKenna and directed by Anne Fletcher (Step Up). ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

An unofficial extra branch of the multi-billion dollar wedding industry, the wedding movie serves to make prospective brides even more excited about dresses, centerpieces, venues, and everything else that will cost them tens of thousands before the big day. 27 Dresses is no more than or less than a fully functioning cog in that machine, straining credibility by about the same amount as most of its brethren (or "sisters," perhaps). The film takes to an extreme our collective notion that bridesmaid dresses are notoriously unwearable. It's not that this isn't sort of a funny idea, but the film overdoes it by suggesting that Katherine Heigl's Jane has so many intimate girlfriends, she's made the final cut for 27 different wedding parties. But the only person she's seen palling around with is the acerbic and unmarried Casey, played by Judy Greer in what can best be described as "the Judy Greer role." 27 Dresses also regurgitates the familiar scenario involving the "perfect person" (in this case, Edward Burns) whose only failure is that he falls for someone decidedly imperfect (Malin Akerman), and only our heroine, who must be a good sport and not intervene, can recognize the mismatch. The target audience for 27 Dresses is not demanding originality, but they should demand something more than this. Every plot development is calculated and obvious, and only Heigl's deft comic timing delivers any spark at all. To further drive home the idea that "everybody's getting married, and so should you," Heigl participates in two weddings at once by cabbing back and forth across town, changing dresses in the back seat, and James Marsden's frustrated reporter documents these unions through gooey features splashed across the newspaper. If the wedding machine is so great, how come no one here seems like they're having any fun? ~ Derek Armstrong, All Movie Guide
