Director: Anne Fletcher
Cast: Katherine Heigl, James Marsden, Edward Burns, Malin Akerman, Judy Greer
Jane (Heigl) is always a bridesmaid...literally. She has become the perpetual best friend who always helps other brides in their big day, while she only dreams of her own.
She fantasizes about the day when her boss George (Burns) will finally realize he loves her and propose, but when Jane's younger sister Tess (Akerman) arrives in town, she's the one who ends up living Jane's fantasy.
Now she must plan her sister's wedding to the man she loves.
What should be a cute romantic comedy about making your dreams come true, turns into a parade of bitchiness where each character outodes each other in dislikeability.
Tess is the kind of character you know will eventually evolve, but she's such a liar that you wonder why does Jane put up with her.
Jane's a pushover, but instead of making us root for her, because of her noble qualities all you wanna do is slap her (which, scene stealer, Judy Greer's character eventually does).
Even Jane's eventual Prince Charming, a cynical journalist (Marsden) who unbeknownst to her is the author of her favorite wedding stories, results more stalker than romantic.
But when Jane starts taking her life on her hands, she becomes an awful person, the one who you hope never gets married!
Not since Lars von Trier had a director made the lead actress suffer so much, so it's good that Heigl possesses an incredible charm and next door beauty that make us look at her and smile regardless of the tortures she's being submitted to.
