27 Dresses

The Happy Couple: Tess (Malin Akerman) and George (Edward Burns)

The Hanger On: Jane (Katherine Heigl)

What’s the situation? Jane has been 27 times a bridesmaid and never a bride, and has a hopeless crush on her boss, George – who promptly falls in love with her sister, because that’s the way it crumbles, cookie-wise. Jane, stuck with the bridesmaid role again and fuming, is also being pursued by reporter Kevin (James Marsden) for the story of her wedding heroics – but she goes off the rails, ruins the engagement drinks and breaks up the couple, which is pretty harsh even if her sister did cut up their dead mother’s dress. Can she make everything right again? Yes.

Worst moment: The engagement drinks meltdown, where Jane reveals that her sister – contrary to the claims she’s made to her fiancé – is a meat-eating, keg-drinking, cat-abusing liar

Moral of the story? Treat your bridesmaids well: they may one day make you wear those dresses yourself.

Wedding checklist:

Does the wedding go ahead?
Does true love triumph?
Is there a run for love at the end?
Comic relief from elderly relatives?
Realism score 3/10

I would love to hear some opinions about The Accidental Husband. The film with morals so twisted, I could barely watch it without smashing the TV up. More
