Not romantic or funny

Last night I watched 27 Dresses, just to see what I might have missed when it was at the movies. The answer to that question is nothing. Sure, I like James Marsden and Judy Greer and the guy from 30 Rock whose name I can’t remember. I don’t watch Gray’s Anatomy so the appeal of Katherine Heigl is lost on me. And really, is Ed Burns that hard up for a gig these days that he had to take a crap, one-dimensional part in this film? It seems so.

It was just what I expected, or even a little bit less. Lots of stereotyping of romance, love and gender. There was the potential for it to be a little bit subversive but they went for the happily ever after ending which all in all was a little bit sick-making. Overall, it made me feel old, cynical and not at all inclined to watch another so called romantic comedy ever again. Unless someone can recommend a decent one made in the last five years.

    I have seen it too, and it wasn't the world's best film. I am not enamoured of Grey's Anatomy either. I do like When Harry Met Sally, and You've Got Mail. I am a sucker fro Sleepless in Seattle because of it's tribute to An Affair To Remember. Not the Warren Beatty one though.

    Yes I love When Harry Met Sally, and You've Got Mail (especially for the dated technology it shows us now)…and I do like Sleepless in Seattle even though it is a little long winded and not that funny. Definitely not Warren Beatty!
