A Wedding Tale

While she is attending two weddings at the same time, she is knocked down by someone trying to catch the bouquet of one of the weddings. She is helped up by a man named Kevin Doyle (James Marsden) who turns out to be a mysterious and cynical man who hates weddings, but since Jane is rather delusional for a few minutes after hitting her head Kevin offers to take her home. Kevin then realizes that Jane left her filofax in the taxi. after reading it he realizes that Jane's life would make a great story and possibly be his ticket out of commitments. The next day Jane's little sister Tess (Malin Akerman) is coming in to town for a few weeks. Jane then goes to her co-workers engagement party where it is revealed that Jane is madly in love with her boss George, although he doesn't know it. Tess later shows up at the party and immediately hits is off with Jane's boss. Jane is confused and upset that her little sister has stolen the person she was in love with. Tess begins to spin a web of lies to make George like her, and it works. George and Tess are getting married in three weeks, and Tess is having Jane plan her wedding which happens to be exactly the wedding Jane wanted. Jane then discovers that Kevin Doyle is actually Malcolm Doyle who writes fabulous articles in the commitment column. Jane secretly is in love with the articles that Malcolm Doyle writes, but she doesn't want him to know because she thinks he is an arrogant wedding hater. While Kevin is interviewing Jane, he discovers all 27 bridesmaid dresses in her closet. Jane wants to prove to him that they aren't all bad and tries them on, and comes to the conclusion that they really are all bad. A few days later Jane and Kevin get in a heated discussion about Jane's problems, and they hydroplane off the road. They walk to a bar and end up signing "Bennie and the Jets" while a little tipsy. The next morning Jane finds out about the article that Kevin published about her. Jane then ends the relationship between her and Kevin, and everything from then on out goes downhill. After an enormous fight with Tess and a kiss from George, Jane realizes that she is madly in love with Kevin Doyle. A year has passed, and it shows Jane and Kevin's wedding day. All the brides that Jane was a bridesmaid in are now at Jane's wedding in the terrible bridesmaid dresses that Jane had too wear. Jane has finally put on her 28th dress.

The Cast
Katherine Heigl (Alison Scott from Knocked Up) and James Marsden are great in the film. Their great acting really makes the film come alive, and makes everyone want to have that special day. Edward Burns plays Jane's boss George, and Malin Akerman plays Tess. Judy Greer plays Casey, Jane's friend, and Brian Kerwin plays Jane and Tess's dad. There were many many more actors/actresses who played the 27 brides.
