|Man. I mean damn. This one is something else. How many boyfriends were dragged to this god-awful mess of a movie? The sexual reward had to be immense to make the viewing of this one worthwhile. I mean, those girlfriends had to do some freaky shit to repay the favor. I can only imagine. (If anyone has stories, please e-mail me).|
Katherine Heigl is Jane Nichols, a young woman pining for love. She's been a bridesmaid 27 times, hence that famous phrase. She is an amateur wedding planner, and she loves arranging the perfect ceremony for the perfect occasion.
But she wants love of her own, of course. Jane's is also an assistant to an advertising exec named George (Edward Burns). And she is madly, but secretly, in love with him. Then her whore of a sister Tess (Malin Akerman) comes onto the scene and snatches up George. The two are to be married, and guess who's going to be arranging the ceremony. Well, this is all very overwhelming for Jane, which is when she runs into Kevin (James Marsden), a Wedding Announcements writer for the New York Journal who wants to do a story on Jane (that's really the plot). I wonder if the two will fall for one another?
I'm not quite sure why I hate this movie so much. Oftentimes, I'm a sucker for formulaic romantic comedy and the like, but not here. Katherine Heigl is a talented actress, but not here. It just made me ill to look at.
But donít worry- the audio and video quality is excellent. Therefore, the movie is good. Thatís what Iím supposed to say, right? Presented in 2.35:1 widescreen and encoded at 1080p, the Blu-ray is quite the transfer. The source material is recent and I didnít expect many problems, and there aren't many. There is some film grain, but it is not obtrusive and seems to fit well with the mood of the film. Colors are distinct and vibrant, and blacks are incredible.
Audio is PCM surround, and we also have a Dolby Digital mix. This is how crap should sound- beautiful. Surrounds are active when its needed. Bass is deep and dialogue is crisp and clear.
