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.

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

27 Dresses is so flimsy it gives froth a bad name.

Katherine Heigl carries 27 Dresses when all else fails, which it does with great regularity.
January 22, 2008
Talk about setting the woman's movement back by about a half-century.
January 18, 2008
The biggest disappointment of 27 Dresses is that it inhabits a Harlequin romance New York City, one remarkably short on homosexuals and divorce.
January 18, 2008
Certainly Heigl fares better in less formulaic fare, such as Judd Apatow's irreverent Knocked Up, but she does raise the level of this chick flick from bland to mildly entertaining.

Anyone who has the slightest doubt about where this movie is heading probably leads a full and rich life that doesn't include watching romantic comedies like My Best Friend's Wedding, which covered this same ground with a lot more verve and humour.

Well, if you can figure out how this story ends, you've probably got better things to do than watch 27 Dresses.

January 18, 2008
All the plot elements that we're encouraged to care about in 27 Dresses resolve in a dud, and the only thing that feels good about the feel-good finish is that it means the movie's over.

January 18, 2008
It's not one for the ages, but this comedy about the 'perpetual bridesmaid' suggests a romantic marriage between star and audience that could last and last.

27 Dresses makes the point that modern American weddings are all pretty much alike. The same could be said about modern American romantic comedies.

Anyone who has seen a chick flick knows what is going to happen next, and next, and next...

Anyone watching this appealing actress march toward the inevitable will wonder why she's settling for so much less than she deserves.

January 18, 2008
The romantic comedy 27 Dresses provides [Heigl] with a chance to flex her comedic muscles, and her whip-smart delivery and timing are an indication that we may at last have a worthy heroine for the otherwise shaky future of romcom.

The clichés, like the dresses, sashay in and out of this predictable if nicely fluffy chick-flick composite, which manages to crank out a few decent laughs when it isn't wasting time on a pair of deadly supporting characters.

Katherine Heigl is a movie star. Even in a fluffy romantic comedy like 27 Dresses, she lights up the screen.

Sorry, Sandra. Too bad, Meg. The mantle of movie cute queen has just been passed to Katherine Heigl, starring as the romantically challenged New Yorker of 27 Dresses.

The romantic comedy 27 Dresses will work best for people who have never seen a romantic comedy. If you have, you might find it amusing to tally up the steals -- I mean, homages.

My favorite performer in the movie, Judy Greer, is a deadpan killah as Jane's co-worker. She and Heigl deserve fresher stuff.

27 Dresses is one heck of a happy date movie. Smiling faces are guaranteed on all seen exiting when the credits finally do roll here.

January 18, 2008
Eventually the contrivances win out, but the cast keeps it all watchable.
January 18, 2008
There's a decent movie in here somewhere. But the director and screenwriter have made a ditsy single-chick movie with the alluring geometry of a screwball comedy.

January 18, 2008
Familiarity may be the central attraction of both weddings and romantic comedies, but the creators of 27 Dresses have taken a good thing too far.

No self-respecting screenwriter would put a Hugh Grant character through what Heigl's endures here. I don't blame McKenna: I blame a studio system that figures if it worked for Julia Roberts, it will work for Heigl.

January 17, 2008
A romantic comedy that -- despite her [Star Katherine Heigl] undeniable, apple-cheeked appeal -- sags like a day-old bouquet.
January 17, 2008
Too bad they didn't accessorize it with more creativity.

January 17, 2008
27 Dresses dutifully privileges its formulaic plot over its stick-figure characters, slapping a happy ending on a setup that, say, Happiness director Todd Solondz could have gone to town on.

Made 10 years ago, it probably would have starred a vacationing cast member from Friends.

Under Anne Fletcher's mechanistic direction, 27 Dresses ticks along as briskly and transparently as a clock with a see-through face.

If 27 Dresses were part of a wedding reception, it wouldn't be the bouquet toss, but it wouldn't be the Chicken Dance, either. It's more like the cake: mass-produced, maybe a little too sweet but enjoyable all the same.

January 15, 2008
A forgettable, formulaic comedy so predictable that seeing it and skipping it are the exact same thing.
January 15, 2008
27 Dresses is an illustration of what can result when the filmmakers possess a solid understanding of the romantic comedy formula and decide never to stray from it by one iota.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
January 15, 2008
27 Dresses is so chock full of romantic-comedy clichés, it almost plays like a parody.
January 9, 2008
It's white-lace porn for girls of every age, and the way that it revels in that get-me-to-the-altar mood, to the point of making anyone who isn't getting married feel like a loser, is the picture's key selling point.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
January 3, 2008
Frothy, funny and formulaic, this pleasantly predictable romantic comedy may be viewed as another step forward for Katherine Heigl.
January 3, 2008
While Heigl is terrific, this uninspired romantic comedy is considerably less so.
