27 Dresses hopes to achieve the same level of succes as a previous movie of the same genre. As you can tell by the humble second title there above the movie name. My wife was the first to notice. I mistakenly thought it was a "industry saying." :)
This movie has its likeable characters in realistic scenarios making the movie entertaining enough. To watch once. Katherine's portrayal of a kind, selfless girl makes her very likable albeit a bit gullible. It was all thrown away though with a single word at the end. More. Blegh.
Watch it with your significant other if you have to but there are better romantic comedies out there. Katherine Heigl could definitely do better. Her acting is NOT to blame for this low score. The over-publicized screenwriter is. One thing I was happy about was that they didn't "throw a bone" to the boyfriends/husbands watching this movie with a gratuitous pillow fight or something equally moronic. I like to imagine it is because they had more respect for us.
Sidenote: Ever notice how certain actors/actresses have characters with the same name frequently? I wonder if this is coincidental, as a nod to fans, or it just makes it easier for them to memorize their lines.
- Wuthering Heights (2003) (TV) .... Isabel Linton
- "Grey's Anatomy" .... Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens
- "Roswell" .... Isabel Evans
