Assignment #9

The recent romantic comedy “27 Dresses”, a Fox 2000 Pictures film, Jane is a young woman who has been ‘in love’ with weddings since childhood, which is a good thing since she’s been a bridesmaid in 27 of them! Perpetually awaiting the day she receives any indication of affection from her boss George (Edward Burns), Jane encounters problems at the homecoming of her “prettier” sister Tess (Malin Akerman), who seems to steal the spotlight– and George’s affections. Jane’s life is further complicated by Kevin (James Marsden) a cynical writer with a soft spot for weddings. Hilarity ensues as Jane tries to sort out her emotions and her life, and learns that sometimes perceptions of love can be misconceptions.

Katherine Heigl doesn’t disappoint as Jane, the perpetually-single, always-a-bridesmaid, fawning-over-her-boss, walking cliché. She plays the part of the “ugly” sister well, and is just as witty and charming as she’s ever been. James Marsden was wonderful in his role as well, though the chemistry between the two wasn’t what I’d hoped. Judy Greer and Krysten Ritter make a great addition to the cast with their supporting roles as the best friend and the spacey secretary respectively. In the end, the film leaves you smiling no matter how contrived the storyline may be at times… and it gives you a whole new appreciation for just how brave those bridesmaids are!

  • I love sewing and making clothes and dresses, and I also run a small tailoring business.I find inspiration from fashion televion programs and magazines. Children dresses also attracts new ideas for me. I feel every dress has its own beauty and uniqueness which cannot be replicated. I apply this thought when I design my own clothes.
