Movie Reviews: 27 Dresses

27 Dresses is receiving a good dressing down from most critics. "This by-the-numbers romantic comedy is the kind of rote exercise that can give a genre a bad name," says Los Angeles Times critic Carina Chocano. Joe Morgenstern in the Wall Street Journal gives it just that, dismissing it as a "half-hatched chick flick" -- although he does credit star Katherine Heigl for managing "to make her character endearing, as well as borderline -- believable." Indeed, Elizabeth Weitzman in the New York Daily News comments, "Anyone watching this appealing actress march toward the inevitable will wonder why she's settling for so much less than she deserves." And Claudia Puig in USA Today says that the movie is like one of the 27 bridesmaid dresses featured in the film: "frothy, predictable and over the top."
