27 Dresses (Romantic Comedy 2008)

This was a highly predictable movie about a girl who was always a bridesmaid, but never the bride. Am I the only one who thinks that number is just too unrealistic? Who honestly has 27 close friends?

This film starred Katherine Heigl, the main chick from Knocked Up and James Marsden, the dude who was in the movie Enchanted that I just watched. Both actors were pretty good, but the story was just a little too corny for my taste. I've already said it, but I'll say it again: this movie was 100% predictable. You already know the beginning, middle, and ending just from watching the preview. The story was written by Aline Brosh McKenna, the same person who wrote The Devil Wears Prada, so I knew the plot would not be a complete cheese-fest, but it was still very cheese-laden.

Me already knowing the story was kinda a downer. Most romantic comedies are like that, but this one seemed like an extreme example. It was still O.K. and even different, in some respects, but it was, at heart, still a chick flick.
