A reporter (Gere) is covering the small town almost-bride (Roberts) who has left so many men at the alter that she’s become known as “the Runaway Bride.”
27 Dresses (2008)
Only Katherine Heigl can make these 27 hideous and outrageous bridesmaid dresses look dazzling as she poses for James Marsden (before she knows he’s a reporter). Now that you’re engaged, you can laugh in the face of the old saying, “always a bridesmaid, never a bride.”
