Comparing and Contrasting Two Movies
27 Dresses and P.S. I Love You are two excellent movies. Some people believe that love stories are sappy and pointless, and that they all end the same. This is true, but a happily ever after is a happily ever after. Every woman wants a fairy tale ending. Although 27 Dresses and P.S. I Love You are similar in the fact that they both are about falling in love and the struggles involving the person you want to be with, they are different because 27 Dresses is about a woman who’s love for her boss is unrequited, while P.S. I Love You is about a woman who loses her husband to cancer. 27 dresses is about a young girl named Jane who lives and works in New York City. She is the boss’s assistant for the company she works for as well as a bridesmaid/wedding planner “on the side” at her own free will. (She is always a bridesmaid, never a bride.) George, her boss, values her very much, but he doesn’t love her. She’s desperately in love with him—at least until the cynical egotistical Kevin comes into the picture; Jane later learns that Kevin is also Malcom Doyle, her favorite writer that writes the Commitments section of the New York Journal. Kevin and Jane are always arguing about something, their personalities seeming to clash. When Jane’s sister Tess comes to visit her older sister, she and George fall in love, him proposing her about a month later in which Jane accidentally witnesses. She is crushed, but that doesn’t stop her from helping Tess plan the wedding. One day, Kevin and Jane are arguing back and forth while driving to an antiques shop in the rain. The argument ends when the car hydroplanes and they end up in a ditch. They end up stuck in a bar until morning. Alcohol persuaded the two to “hook up,” only to end in disaster when Kevin’s boss publishes a piece in the paper about Jane and Tess that she said she wouldn’t publish. Jane is furious. But Jane gets her wedding...
