Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”

Katherine Heigl is ready for primetime, a charming actress who can play everywoman, or an ordinary person as we like to see ourselves onscreen – that is to say, a struggling administrative assistant able to afford a large Manhattan apartment and look like she visits a beauty spa every weekend, but still has crippling self-confidence issues. Heigl's personal magnetism carries a lot of weight in 27 Dresses, a by-the-numbers romantic comedy whose plot leans heavily on "Fred Flintstone moments," those contrived misunderstandings that wouldn't happen if the characters would just give each other a moment to explain themselves. You'll wind up liking Heigl and her movie in spite of itself.
