I cant remember when was the first time and for how many times Ive seen this Chick Flick. I just love to watch it everytime I get to catch it on TV. So here's a quick taps and flicks of my fingers to express my love for this movie.
The film is about sweet Jane. How she never says 'no'. How she loves wedding and helping everyone she knows arranging this special day in their lives. She had been a part of a wedding for 27 times. Theres this line from the film that goes like - "Always the bridesmaid never the bride" and she was all that. Jane's a hopeless romantic. Hoping that next time it will be her turn to walk down the aisle and that finally her one-sided love with her boss George will be it.
But then, one night in her life, she has to attend two weddings at the same time. That's when she meets cynical Kevin, who tries to wake her up from her delusional idea of marriage. And Jane, not knowing that he is her favorite wedding columnist writer (and by favorite, I mean really really really love!) kinda became friends with this Kevin. Who is super cute and smart BY THE WAY.
A general part of the movie I exceptionally like was Jane's relationship with her younger sister, Tess. Their mother died when they were young and their father raised them. So typically, she took care of Tess. I adore sisterly like stories!
But then Tess just has to fall for her sister's one true love! Tess and George fell in love (what a bummer in Jane's part right?!) and decided to get married.
Typical sweet Jane has to help them right? But it was hell hard for her, arranging this wedding for the love of her life and her sister who's life's been so easy because she is pretty-funny-and-charming. and to find out that her favorite wedding columnist writer will be scribbling this wedding too for the news papers.
So with all the wedding preps, her bitch sister to be married to HER George and a writer Kevin Boyle who took so much interest in her bridesmaid life, Jane just had enough. For once in her life she had to say NO. and the way she did it was not so very nice. She messed up her baby sis' wedding!
At the end, she and Tess made up and finally understood each other. And she figured out that she was no longer in love with George. Jane got her long waited wedding with Kevin Boyle. A guy who was broken and cynical at first but fell in love with Jane and changed him back to his softy side.
The combination of romance, comedy and drama in this film is what makes me watch it again and again. I love movies about weddings! I agree with Jane that one of the most beautiful parts of weddings was when the bride walks in the aisle and that smile on the grooms face, that's something! It's like a genuine proof of pure love.
One more thing, before this post ends, I pray that someday I'll get to meet a young smartass writer and make him see me beyond my flaws and fall for me. Just how Kevin did. Damn! I really do have this thing with writers. (and also Im such a fan of Katherine Heigl. I guess, I had seen all of her RomComs films.)
I (kinda) feel for Jane here. How she was so nice and people expect a lot from her (since she is pretty damn nice). Sometimes it's crazy that those who have put so much love and effort gets to be on the sideline of things. Like how Jane was to her sister. But for Jane it seems all worth it in the end. She got her walk in the aisle paired with her anticipated romantic look from his groom.
This film made me more hopeful (more of hopeless romantic) that someday someone will come and sweep me off my feet. Someday.
