Katherine Heigl, who earlier this year starred in the hit motion picture comedy KNOCKED UP from Judd Apatow, and was awarded an Emmy« for her starring role as a surgical resident in GREY'S ANATOMY, is always a bridesmaid but never a bride in the romantic comedy 27 DRESSES. From the screenwriter of THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, 27 DRESSES centres on Jane (Heigl), an idealistic, romantic and completely selfless woman...a perennial bridal attendant whose own happy ending is nowhere in sight. But when younger sister Tess captures the heart of Jane's boss - with whom she is secretly in love - Jane begins to re-examine her "always-a-bridesmaid...." lifestyle.

Jane has always been good at taking care of others, but not so much in looking after herself. Her entire life has been about making people happy and she has a wardrobe full of 27 bridesmaid dresses to prove it. One memorable evening, Jane manages to shuttle between wedding receptions in Manhattan and Brooklyn, a feat witnessed by Kevin (James Marsden), a newspaper reporter who realizes that a story about this wedding junkie is his ticket off the newspaper's bridal beat.

Jane finds Kevin's cynicism counter to everything she holds dear - namely weddings, and the two lock horns. Further complicating Jane's once perfectly ordered life is the arrival of younger sister Tess (Malin Akerman). Tess immediately captures the heart of Jane's boss, George (Edward Burns). Tess enlists her always accommodating sister to plan yet another wedding, Tess and George's, but Jane's feelings for him lead to shocking revelations...and maybe the beginning of a new life.
