"What? You Kept Them All?" - Kevin
Reviewed in the United States on July 28, 2018
Imagine looking into your hallway closet and twenty-seven dresses of all shapes, colors, sizes, and dates are all staring back at you. Basically, you must back into the door just to slam it shut anymore. Now, how much is that worth in money alone? Let alone time, giving, work, and energy. This is exactly what Jane (Katherine Heigl) does for others in her life as she devotes all of her inspiration - and whatever else could be expected - to all of these bride's magic moments. It is her own glory to assist and to take over the whole ceremony offering every bride her adoration in the most attached of ways. She holds in the highest regard the whole 'idea' of weddings while clipping the newspaper's highlighted romantic stories of the week's interesting turn of wedded bliss and collects them all. You could say Jane is obsessed with being obsessed and enraptured to be of service. Hmm, weddings, write-ups concerning them along with her boss, George (Edward Burns), and yes, she dreams of the day she... and George will hookup. This would truly be the icing on her own divinely layered wedding cake.
Unbeknownst to Jane, the newly placed marriage column writer from the weekend's paper is also a blatant cynic of the nuptials he is writing about...or, is he really? Kevin (James Marsden) trips oh so politely through a couple's special day - word by word - as Jane drinks it all in with an over-the-top romantic straw. Especially during an intriguingly personal photo-shoot he must get done for a piece he has begun working on. When it comes to the wedding reporter's articles, Jane's collecting and dreaming over his writings of floral loveliness wisp her forward week after week - along with her abundantly jammed-up closet. She would never dream of saying 'No' to a bridal friend in need.
Everything seems to be in place to keep Jane's life in order, that is until her delicious model sister, Tess (Malin Akerman), pops into her life unexpectedly and turns George's head around in matrimonial circles. While Jane questions the whole idea that may be in her sister's future, Kevin questions the 'whys' of taking other's Kodak moments instead of collecting one's own resulting in this comedic wedding farce starring Jane herself.
