"The Wedding Party" is a fairly standard making of featurette that mixes clips from the film, behind-the-scenes footage, and soundbites from the cast and crew. Everyone gushes about each other. It's a light and breezy extra, much like the film itself.
"You'll Never Wear That Again!" takes a look at the hideous bridesmaid dresses from the film. The director told wardrobe to find the ugliest dresses and succeeded. The various themed weddings are also discussed in this engaging and fun extra.
"Jane's World" examines the production design and how they made Rhode Island look like New York City (?!). A lot of research was done on weddings in order to capture the distinct look of each one.
"The Running of the Brides" is an annual tradition that sees women from all over the country camping out at a store where they all try to get the perfect dress to get married in. It's a shopping frenzy as people race around to get a dress or trade with others.
Also included are three deleted scenes. The first one sees Jane trying to get a cab in New York (good luck) and was wisely cut. The best of the bunch sees Jane, her best friend (Judy Greer) and Tess' best friend trying on bridesmaid dresses. The interaction between the three of them is amusing. Finally, there is a scene where Jane and Tess retrieve George's dog from a pound which seems out of place in the film and was also wisely cut.
I think this movie could appeal to almost anyone (including guys). Judy Greer is as good as always (she plays Janes friend Casey) and the rest of the cast do well too. It doesn't hurt that Ed Burns is a very good looking guy and acted pretty well in this. It's light popcorn fun, but worth your time watching it. You'll hopefully love it too.
George (Edward Burns) is the man Jane always hoped would be at the other end of the aisle. He's Jane's boss and an entrepreneur who made his millions selling the kind of outdoor equipment he loves to use. He's a gentle soul, a selfless vegetarian who loves dogs and serves as a Big Brother to a great Hispanic kid named Pedro.
Jane's getting practice for that big day. So far, she's been a bridesmaid at 27 weddings. That's 27 dresses in her apartment front closet--none she will ever wear again...well, none anyone should have had to wear in the first place.
Enter Tess (Malin Akeman), Jane's baby sister. She and George fall in love at first sight when Tess comes for a 2-week sisterly visit. Of course, George proposes and Tess accepts. But, Tess isn't quite what she's leading George to believe. She doesn't like dogs. She eats meat, and she's turning George's little brother into her personal cleaning service.
And Jane--who is both jealous of her little sister and concerned about the lies Tess is telling to 'get her man' has to put the wedding together. Add to that the complication of Kevin (James Marsden), the bridal column journalist, who is following both Jane's career as a bridesmaid and amateur wedding planner and Tess's wedding.
"27 Dresses" is a heartwarming and funny film that's both a good date movie and suitable for pre-teens. In my opinion, Ms. Heigl is showing versatility as an actress playing the sweet romantic heroine in "27 Dresses" and the hapless accidental mother in "Knocked up." She's steering a course similar to Johnny Depp's, in that she's selecting a variety of parts that won't leave her typecast.
