And while 27 Dresses just doesnt do it for White,
he has a list of other wedding films that he actually does like.
Wedding films that had White hearing blissful bells include...
Robert Altmans 1978 flick A Wedding,

thinking weddings are weird cause they are.
Betsys Wedding, starring teen queen Molly

film, especially Ringwalds top hat, which White calls
out-of-control bad and good.
Finally, Toni Collettes 1994 comedy

has the spine to show you how pathetic that is.
