Finding Ourselves in Fiction: Jenny’s Wedding

Leave a comment

Jenny’s Wedding, starring Katherine Heigl as a gay woman whose family has to come to terms with her sexuality, was a bit of a disappointment. That isn’t to say I didn’t enjoy it–It was pleasant in the way Hallmark movies are often pleasant, with the added virtue of being pro-gay and giving a realistic representation of what many gay people encounter. Unfortunately, there was just no chemistry between Heigle and Alexis Bledel. While the love story was not central to the film, it felt as if a cardboard cutout could have been substituted for Bledel without much alteration to the finished product. Still, it was a reasonably enjoyable movie for a night in.

There are no steamy scenes about which to warn you. Not even cardboard ones.
