Jane is an idealistic, romantic and completely selfless woman--a perennial bridal attendant whose own happy ending is nowhere in sight. But, when younger sister Tess captures the heart of Jane's boss--with whom she is secretly in love--Jane begins to reexamine her "always-a-bridesmaid" lifestyle.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Anna Smith, Time Out
"Talk about setting the woman's movement back by about a half-century."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Undeniably appealing because of Katherine Heigl."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"Well cast, slickly produced and performed with enough spirit to somewhat counterbalance its frequently stupendous lack of originality and plausibility. Still not quite good enough, though..."
‑ Brent Simon, Screen International
"There are only a few moments that feel genuine and allow Katherine Heigel to smile. 27 Dresses is chock-full of cheese and eventually runs out of material."
‑ Jeff Bayer, The Scorecard Review
"27 Dresses is so flimsy it gives froth a bad name."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"The biggest disappointment of 27 Dresses is that it inhabits a Harlequin romance New York City, one remarkably short on homosexuals and divorce."
‑ Mary Elizabeth Williams, Salon.com
"27 Dresses is formulaic, predictable and unoriginal, but romantic comedies would be burned at the stake if they didn't follow the strict guidelines above - it's almost kinda fun seeing it hit all of its marks."
‑ Ali Gray, TheShiznit.co.uk
"Hugely enjoyable, frequently funny romantic comedy with a superb script and a terrific central performance from Katherine Heigl."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"This movie isn't anything special, but it's well done and generally pleasing. It's a nice, subtle and safe romantic comedy that will please fans of the genre."
‑ Austin Kennedy, Sin Magazine
"Katherine Heigl carries 27 Dresses when all else fails, which it does with great regularity."
‑ Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"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."
‑ Claudia Puig, USA Today
"there's a desire to see their characters displaced into a better film with more on its mind than to be better than it should be because of its casting director."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"An insult to the romantic comedy."
‑ Heather Huntington, ReelzChannel.com
"27 Dresses can be worked out just like a long division problem. The story offers up the problem and then it just works its way out to the perfect mathematical solution in the end."
‑ Kevin McCarthy, WJFK-FM (CBS Radio)
