She spends most of her time as a bridesmaid and can never say no to her friends, and has 27 dresses as evidence. She meets Kevin (James Marsden) a cynical writer who finds her attractive, and on the same week her younger sister Tess(Malin Akerman) re-enters her life and then falls in love with George.
Light and fun to watch. I just love watching wedding chick flicks. Hehe. :)
Kevin: [motions to a "Gone With the Wind"-style dress] What the hell is that?
Jane: Theme wedding.
Kevin: What was the theme? Humiliation?
Jane: You write the most beautiful things. Do you actually believe in love and marriage and just pretend to be a cynic or are you actually a cynic who knows how to spin romantic crap for girls like me?
Kevin: I didn't follow that at all, but I think the second one, the spinning crap one.
Jane: You're the one who's always telling me to stand up for myself.
Casey: Yeah, but that's not what you did. What you did was unleash twenty years of repressed feelings in one night. It was entertaining, don't get me wrong, but if it was the right thing to do, you'd feel better right now. Do you feel better right now?
