I have no idea why the people who decide such matters have elected to release this perfect Valentine's Day movie in the middle of January. Perhaps it's counter-programming for Cloverfield. Whatever the case, 27 Dresses is an illustration of what can result when the filmmakers possess a solid understanding of the romantic comedy formula and decide never to stray from it by one iota. There's not a surprising moment in the movie yet it works in spite of the stale, insipid storyline. That has a lot to do with lead actress Katherine Heigl and a little to do with the glowing embers between her and her co-star, James Marsden. Take away these two and their low-key chemistry and there would be little here worth seeing.
