This movie isn't anything special, but it's well done and generally pleasing. It's a nice, subtle and safe romantic comedy that will please fans of the genre.

27 Dresses can be worked out just like a long division problem. The story offers up the problem and then it just works its way out to the perfect mathematical solution in the end.

Much like her character in Knocked Up, Heigl here just can't seem to keep her distance from guy trouble or her libido in check, every time she hits the booze at a convenient bar in the vicinity.

This film uses the same formula, but it executes the formula better than most other romantic comedies do.

Is Katherine Heigl the new Meg Ryan? The fitfully entertaining 27 Dresses suggests just that.

Katherine Heigl proves she deserves leading-lady status in this predictable but entertaining romantic comedy...

If you are looking for a bit of dippy romance at the cinema, this is worth trying on for size.

Jane Crowther
Total Film

Something old, something borrowed... but still an assured, perfectly decent popcorn pleaser that sees the limber, likeable Heigl consolidate her Knocked Up lustre. Add sparky his/her chemistry and you've got a well-turned-out chick flick.

March 28, 2008

A palatable, frothy chick-flick confection with just enough fire in its belly to hold the attention and a star turn by Katherine Heigl, at heart this is as pleasantly vacuous as they come: 27 dresses and nothing going on.

Sky Movies

There's no marks for originality and the dialogue doesn't actually fizz champagne-style but the comedy playing is solid with Heigl enjoying a late honeymoon period.

hops along merrily enough thanks to an engaging turn from Heigl, who's nailed the unusually-pretty-girl-next-door act while embracing physical and risqué comedy.

Cute, cute, cute. No bouquets for originality, but it pushes all the buttons of this mini-genre, and Heigl and Marsden ring dem bells.

It proves that with the right cast and creative team in place, even an old formula can still entertain.
