Hmm, watch the national championship game or go to the "27 Dresses" premiere?

I don't wanna talk about it so let's just move on shall we? Nothing to see here.

So last night Whitney was kind enough to take me to the big premiere of the new Katherine Heigl movie "27 Dresses." While I obviously went more for the fanfare than the chicktasticness of the movie, it ended up being way more fun than I expected. But then that seems to be the way things go for me lately.

It was my first big premiere so that was certainly fun even though we were routed around the red carpet which I felt was completely unfair. Mainly to the readers of Perez Hilton who this morning had no idea how great Whitney and I looked after having fought LA traffic from our respective jobs in order to get there by 7:30. Or how great my hair looked since it hasn't been cut since before Thanksgiving. Or how ragged I look considering I feel like it's been one long party since the last time I cut my hair as well.

Or maybe we were like those stars that are so huge they don't even do the carpet but rather somehow magically backdoor it to their seats.

But on to the fun stuff: the movie!

It was a cute story about a smart, loving and caring friend-to-everyone kind of girl who is quite literally as the expression goes, always a bridesmaid, never the bride. Thus she's been in 27 weddings, none of which her own obviously. Simple enough, right?

Well, see she's in love with her boss played by Ed Burns but of course has done nothing about it aside from agonize over how perfect he is (seven-summiter climber, environmentally-conscious business owner, etc.) . Enter her more attractive younger sister who comes to town and immediately lands him and rapidly goes about getting engaged to him. Throw in the nice, funny guy who cares about her (thank god I have no experience in that area) despitethe fact she's totally blowing him off but still pursues her before later writing an inflammatory newspaper story about her and you've got quite the conundrum on a couple of levels.

Anyhoo, it was a cute movie that I only had one problem with.

Why not just tell your little sister who just waltzed in from out of town and immediately began to mack on Ed Burns "yo, step with pep straight out da picture, girl, 'cause I've done been workin' dis man for quite some time now." Boom, problem solved before it ever is one. But of course then there's no movie. So there's that.

And of course most nice girls don't talk like that.

But I'd totally recommend seeing it when it comes out. Particularly if you fit into one of the following two categories:

• You're female

• You're dating a female

but if you're in the category of "Married to Female" then you're excused from seeing this movie, right? right? please.

Oh totally, dude. You're free and clear.

Besides, ya'll are already married so presumably Tania's fascination with weddings has subsided. Presumably.
