When her brother decides to ditch for a couple weeks, Viola heads over to his elite boarding school, disguised as him, and proceeds to fall for one of his soccer teammates, and soon learns she's not the only one with romantic troubles.
Two things about Jane: she never says no to her friends (she's been a bridesmaid 27 times and selflessly plans friends' weddings), and she's in love with her boss, George, nurturing dreams of a lovely, romantic wedding of her own. She meets Kevin, a cynical writer who finds her attractive, and that same week her flirtatious younger sister Tess comes to town. Jane silently watches George fall for Tess, a manipulative pretender. Worse, Jane may be called upon to plan their wedding. Meanwhile, Kevin tries to get Jane's attention and has an idea that may advance his career. Can Jane uncork her feelings? Written by
The wardrobe department reported that their initial designs for the dresses all looked too good on Katherine Heigl because of her figure, and they were hard-pressed to design bridesmaids dresses that would look bad on her. See more »
Katherine Heigl's hair color seems to change from scene to scene. When she's confronted by her sister after the article in published it is brown/red. Then blonde at work the next day, then brown/red at the bridal shop. See more »
God, Casey, can't you keep it in your pants for one wedding?
Are you kidding? The only reason to wear this monstrous dress is that so some drunken groomsman can rip it to shreds with his teeth.

It only took about five seconds for me to know that no man (or at least no straight man) had anything to do with this film creatively. I know it is not meant for straight men, but watching this with my wife was pure agony.
Yes it is predictable, yes it is unoriginal and unfunny, yes the dialogue is stilted and unrealistic, yes it's cliché, but all of that's to be expected. My biggest complaint with this film is the character played by James Marsden.
So this guy who is supposedly into women actually notices she has a collection of dresses?? then he wants to see her try them all on??? of course he has a sad past that comes up, and how does he get cheered up? By shopping???? Oh, and that sad back-story, he was betrayed by his wife so he decides he hates the concept of marriage rather than the woman herself. How about the fact that his life seems to revolve around this up-coming wedding?? And then, after smattering the name of the bride in a popular news paper (that we're supposed to believe would run such a pointless story) -- going as far as calling the bride-to-be "bridezilla", he actually gets invited to another wedding party where the oh-so-predictable scene where the lovers come together takes place.
This has to be one of the best examples of bad film writing I've come across. I can't even recommend this as a date movie because if the female you're with has any sense she'll find it really stupid as well.
