27 Dresses is an American film about a woman who has attended 27 weddings in the past acting as a bridesmaid, however after such a long time of not being in the spotlight, she sets out to find the right man to give her her own wedding.

Right, just to start, this film is for women. It’s like a worse, American version of Bridget Jones’ Diary, and that’s not very fun to watch either, so this was definitely painful and boring to watch throughout in my opinion, as I myself am not a female.

I also have to say that this film was just too predictable. Of course, the whole thing did exactly what it said on the tin, providing a light-hearted romantic comedy that can make viewers feel happy by the end about the main character’s life, however the fact that it just followed the exact same story of every other rom-com, with very mediocre comedy made it really boring, very predictable and most of all, cheesy beyond belief.

There was the occasional moment where there was a relatively entertaining joke or scene in this film, and they were fine alone, but they only appeared about two or three times throughout the whole thing, so it didn’t make up for the rest of the very poor comedy and storytelling of the film, so that’s why it gets a 5 from me.
