27 Dresses


What little girl hasn't played dress up and dreamed of wearing beautiful dresses? Who hasn't dreamed about being in the perfect wedding? Well, Jane lives out the fantasy's of little girls everywhere as she's in wedding after wedding afte wedding! Why? Well apparently she has a lot of friends...and theirs a scene at the beginning of the movie where we see a young Jane have an epiphany as she realizes how much she just LOVES to save the day and help people have their perfect wedding.



I watched this movie for the first time the other night with one of my dear friends. Let me just say, yes, it's a chick flick and a half! If your not in the mood for a gooey romance, don't bother with it, but if your in the mood to sit back, laugh, eat some chocolate, and feel totally girly, it's perfect!


Getting to see the many, many dresses in this movie was a ton of fun for me. I may have grown up a tom-boy, but I can be as girly as the next girl when the mood strikes! One of my favorite memories is of an afternoon spent trying on one of my friends dresses. We were roughly the same size, and she had a bunch of fun things for us to try on! I felt like a Princess. The only thing that bugged me about this movie was the classic theme of "meet boy, fall for boy, boy hurts girl badly, girl forgives boy, happily ever after." Maybe I'm just cynical, but why does the girl always seem to forgive the boy for being a total idiot? It happens in chick flick after chick flick. Oh well, I suppose they have to put something in to create conflict...

I thought my daughter and I should watch this together. Maybe the boys need a night out? Sounds fun.

Oh, looks like a great movie!

Funny that my DD (age 21) and I were recently talking about how she used to love to play dress up. I kept a box full of clothes, shoes, purses, etc that I did not wear/use anymore instead of giving it to Goodwill...which is eventually where it went.

yeah, I like girlie flicks, but some are a little too much for me. I'll have to see about this one. Having Netflix is a dream, bec I don't feel like I have to see the whole movie if I get bored!
