Movie Review: 27 Dresses


Here is a fun feature that I will bring up whenever I watch a movie of interest and have a recommendation to pass along. Every once in a while there will be a movie that is a cultural phenomena and I will comment on it if I have seen it.

This movie is definitely in the fun category. I have to admit, I was more than a bit skeptical when Sara wanted to watch this movie, but I decided to go along with it. It helps to branch out outside what you traditionally enjoy because sometimes things outside of your normal liking will surprise you with how much they entertain you.

I was genuinely entertained by this movie. Katherine Heigl, who plays Jane, was excellent and she was surrounded by an excellent cast. There was some inappropriate behavior and language, although I would be lying to you if I told you I wasn't laughing through it. Basically, Jane is the extreme example of the saying, "Always a bridesmaid, never a bride." She cannot say no, and this puts her in awkward and funny situations. The conflict comes when her sister flies into town and falls for Jane's long-time crush, who also happens to be her boss. Hilarity ensues. If you love weddings, hate weddings, been in a wedding, or heard of a wedding, you will probably relate to this movie on some level. It is well written and directed extremely well, and its hilarious. Have I mentioned its funny?

Guys, if your wife, girlfriend, crush, whatever is forcing you to watch a movie that she will enjoy and she isn't the Rambo type, then suggest this one. It is the best case scenario for you in the chick flick genre right now. I cannot stress this enough. You will laugh, you will like most of the characters, and assuming you don't pay 18 bucks for a ticket, 7 bucks for a Diet Coke and 6 bucks for nachoes, it will be worth the cost of admission.

Seriously, how long has it been since you took your significant other on a date anyway? Get to it!

Good for you. I am glad to see that there is a man out there that is willing to do something for the woman he loves and challenge all other "I am not watching a chick flick" men to step up to the plate!! Hooray for Pastor Zac!
