Um, hi. It's been a while since I've done Movie Monday courtesy of getting distracted by other things... And now let's jump back into it with a cheese-tastic rom com!
Reasons why 27 Dresses is awesome:
1. Katherine Heigl. She may have gone off-the-rails-bonkers in recent years and made some TRULY terrible choices of roles, but this one is definitely her best.
2. Bennie and the Jets and incredibly wrong words.
4. James Marsden. Okay, so his character is really squinty and wears sneakers all the time, but he's pretty hilarious.
5. The sarcasm.
6. Smiley face pancakes.
7. Malin Akerman. Okay, her character is pretty awful for the majority of the movie, but she's got a good heart.
8. Accidentally screaming swear words at a 50th anniversary party.
10. PUPPY!! The dog is stupidly cute.
11. The ridiculous parade of dresses.
13. No, but seriously. So. Many. Ugly. Dresses.
14. Making all the brides wear their ugly bridesmaids dresses at her wedding.
Plus, the following quotes:
- "I feel like I just found out my favourite love song was written about a sandwich."
- "Wanna find the ugliest stuff in the store and register Tess for it?"
- "What about you? You don't have any needs?" "No, I don't. I'm Jesus."
- "Do you also go around telling small children that Santa Claus doesn't exist? 'Cause someone needs to blow that shit wide open."
- "What the hell is that??" "Theme wedding." "What was the theme? Humiliation??"
- "Must be so hard to watch your younger sister get married before you." "Yes. Then I remember that I still get to have hot hate sex with random strangers and I feel SO much better!"
- "Who was that and where can I get one?"
- "Love is patient, love is kind. Love means slowly losing your mind."
- "You tell him the truth or I will." "No, you won't. You wouldn't hurt a fly and you definitely wouldn't hurt me, I'm your sister." "That was yesterday. Today you're just some bitch who broke my heart and cut up my mother's wedding dress."
- "Can you PLEASE find someone else to be creepy with??"
- "You got them champagne glasses and a bottle of Cristal." "Any way she's actually gonna believe it actually came from me?" "Maybe. Wrapped it like a car ran over it." "Nice touch."
- "Oh, I'm a really very good...caulker."
So. Thoughts? Love it or hate it??
