Race Against the Frock

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Katherine Heigl and James Marsden bring out each other's best, coaxing a joyous, rambunctious spontaneity from one another. Sadly, the lazy, stagnant script for 27 Dresses shackles them; the stodgy, slavishly obeyed rules of romantic comedy require them to be apart -- or fighting -- for most of the movie. Jane (Heigl) moons about having been a bridesmaid 27 times without getting her own wedding. Her crush on her boss (Edward Burns) is thwarted when her supermodel sister (Malin Akerman) turns up, and a happy-go-lucky newspaperman (Marsden), stuck in the "taffeta ghetto" of the Style section, annoys her. Judy Greer plays the wisecracking best friend. Aline Brosh McKenna wrote the script; all the edge of her previous work, The Devil Wears Prada, is dulled. 27 Dresses
