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.

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.

A talented star is let down by a listless genre.

The humour's lively and just irreverent enough to make you laugh without offending your mum.

Though Kevin shows early signs of bucking formula, he is, in fact, the precise embodiment of same.

27 Dresses is a closet full of tired, bursting with characters, dynamics, and perspectives that went out of fashion many films ago.

Formulas exist, quite simply, because they work

Linda Cook
Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
February 24, 2008
The formulaic romantic comedy '27 Dresses' is just off the rack %u2013 a predictable but pleasant-enough movie that's the sort of thing you've seen at least 27 times before.

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

Una mezcla de Experta en Bodas y La Boda de mi Mejor Amigo, pero sin la suficiente gracia. Katherine Heigl no es Julia Roberts, aunque tiene su encanto.

There is a reason why formulae work: here, working well. The movie only blames Jane for forgetting herself in the needs of others, instead of the traditional Hollywood punishment for being single.

Like its protagonist, 27 Dresses undoes itself with niceness.
Garth Franklin
Dark Horizons
February 4, 2008
Manages to cover every wedding film cliche in the canon, and does so without yielding any genuine laughs

However lame and frustrating the screenplay - it is both - and however industrial the directing - very - 27 Dresses is not helplessly unappealing,

Another insult written and directed by women who deserve to be strung up by bridal veils

Shadows on the Wall
January 28, 2008
Despite its standard rom-com structure and relatively superficial story, this film entertains the audience with the sheer charisma of the actors.

Susan Granger
SSG Syndicate
January 27, 2008
A fluffy, frivolous - if formulaic - indulgence for those of us who still enjoy the occasional, old-fashioned wedding fantasy.
