From Alice Brosh McKenna, the writer of “The Devil Wears Prada,” comes “27 Dresses.” The film is about a young woman (Katherine Heigl) who has made a career out of being a bridesmaid but never a bride. She ends up facing her worst nightmare when her sister (Malin Akerman) becomes engaged to the man of her dreams (Ed Burns). Luckily, the wedding brings around the man (James Marsden) who will change her bridesmaid status for good.
Needless to say, when you read that synopsis you immediately think…this was tailor made for men.
Being serious for a second… this is clearly an unapologetic chick flick. If you are a guy reading these words… if you take your girl to see this…you’ll get some brownie points for something you want to see later. And for the women out there… you know what you’re getting before you even walk into the theater.
Anyway, “27 Dresses” opens on January 11th. I just did an interview with Katherine Heigl and Ed Burns and I’ll have that up in the next 2 weeks. Until then, enjoy the clips.
