27 Dresses (2008)

Pleasant and mildly entertaining. The best thing about this movie was the believability of the characters. The hero and heroine who hate each other at the beginning of the movie but end up together at the end is not a new concept in a romantic comedy, but in 27 Dresses, I thought their antagonism was particularly realistic. Instead of their differences being overcome by their physical attraction or whatever, these two actually seemed to complement each other. I could believe that they would be better together than apart, which seems unusually thoughtful for a rom-com, though probably accidentally so.

  1. I thought the same thing. A lot of times when the couple get together at the end, I just think, "Yeah, right. How long do they think THAT's gonna last?" But this one seemed like they really were better together and really did fall in love. It was awfully convenient that she didn't "feel" anything when the guy she's been in love with for years finally kisses her. Chalk it up to her having fallen in love with the other guy, I guess.
