I watched 27 Dresses tonight. I saw it when it was out at the movies just because I like Katherine Heigl, but I was actually surprised by just how much I enjoyed it this time around. I think after all the Oscar and award season intensity (which I care about a lot more than is probably healthy) it was so refreshing to just watch a movie that was just light and silly. It's not great art and doesn't pretend to be; it's just a benign romantic comedy that you can watch for the sake of watching a movie.

I forgot how much I enjoyed romantic comedies; they're always something that you can come back to and the great thing about them is that they're never exhausting. Mindless at times, but you don't emerge from them feeling like you've been through an ordeal. I think the genre itself is undervalued in only for this reason.
