Why 27 Dresses By Aline Brosh Mckenna Is Better Than The Average Romantic .edy-4000dy

Arts-and-Entertainment Copyright © 2009 Ed Bagley 27 Dresses – 2 Stars (Average) Make no mistake, "27 Dresses" is better than average for a romantic .edy with pure entertainment, but not quite able to garner a 3-star (good) rating. What separates out 27 Dresses from other romantic .edies is that the central character Jane (Katherine Heigl) does experience some personal growth in finding that special someone. Heigl is not going to win any acting awards. She does a reliable, but not outstanding acting job as someone who has agreed to be a bridesmaid for 27 of her friends. Jane apparently has a lot of close friends, but remains secretly in love with her boss, who does not notice or care that she is 100% available as a potential mate. Things get a little dicey when Jane’s sister Tess (Malin Akerman) blows into town and gets the immediate notice of her boss George (Edward Burns), who ends up proposing to her. The fact that Jane has lost her love interest to her sister is infuriating, and now she is given 3 weeks to attend to the details of her sister’s wedding. Thrown into the mix is Kevin Doyle (James Marsden), a wedding reporter who writes under his full name Malcolm Doyle for the local newspaper’s ".mitments" section. Kevin develops a keen interest in Jane, but she refuses his advances because she is too busy doing everyone else’s bidding. See the film for what happens after the theft of a day planner, a private fashion show where Jane models her 27 dresses as a bridesmaid, an automobile accident, a major rift between siblings, and a kiss Jane will never forget. It was reported that the wardrobe department for 27 Dresses had a difficult time .ing up with dress designs for Katherine Hegel because everything looked so good on her because of her figure (think fantastic body and dress size for a model). Thank the writer of this film, Alain Brooch McKenna, for injecting some real personal growth for Jane into the script. So many of us achieve professional growth in our lifetime by earning degrees and taking training to improve our skill set and abilities, but very few of us have significant personal growth after entering adulthood. Achieving personal growth forces us to change our core thought patterns and belief systems that have influenced us in our upbringing. This explains why highly educated and literate people can harbor prejudices and bigotry. McKenna is a step up from some other writers as she also wrote the screenplay for "The Devil Wears Prada" and the screenplay and story for "Laws of Attraction". Despite the lack of acting talent in this film, director Anne Fletcher helps tell the story better than most average romantic .edies. While this film is short on great acting, it does manage to win the People’s Choice Award for Favorite .edy, and the Teen Choice Award for Best Chick Flick.
