Predictable but utterly engaging, 27 Dresses will likely be remembered as the film that made Katherine Heigl an A-list star. At the very least, it's the film that places her in the forefront of a long line of actresses who have enjoyed quite the career playing America's Sweetheart. As Jane, the living embodiment of the old adage "always a bridesmaid, never a bride," Heigl gets to play pure, selfless, smart, funny and - although everything about the film, from the script to the cinematography to the costuming, tries to play it down - beautiful.

Congratulations to The Sun for wasting paper and space by publishing the recent commentary by Gov. Martin O'Malley ( "New Md. health care delivery system with prioritize wellness," Jan. 12). Paragraph after paragraph of platitudes, adjectives and action words resulted in a complete non-understanding of what the "old approach" was and "new approach" is. It was the literary equivalent of listening to Irwin Corey's explanation of Major League Baseball's infield fly rule. What "bull hockey.

In your recent article about the incredibly low assessments and taxes on unsold luxury harbor condos in Baltimore City, Owen C. Charles, the deputy director for Maryland's Department of Assessments and Taxation, defended the assessments on some condos ("Millions slip away from city," April 29). After reading the details of the issue, the kindest assumption one can make is that Mr. Charles is incompetent to fill the position he holds. If he is not being completely accurate in his statements, then perhaps other adjectives would be more fitting.

David Ogilvy,88, the advertising man who put the eye patch on the Man in the Hathaway Shirt and created the distinguished Commander Whitehead to sell Schweppes tonic water and club soda, died yesterday at home in Bonnes, France.His death was announced in New York by Ogilvy & Mather, the agency he started in 1948 with two staffers and no clients.While his advertising ideas have become American icons, his greatest legacy was an approach to his business that assumed the intelligence of the consumer.

A sellout crowd packed the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall lobby for the Chimes' "Hall of Fame 10" night, sipping cocktails, browsing a dinner buffet and socializing. But the crackle of excitement in the air had more to do with what the night held next -- a concert by a 14-year-old Welsh singing sensation, Charlotte Church. The most frequently asked question overheard at the get-together? Forget "Hi, how are you?" Rather, it was "Have you heard her before?" Adjectives like "incredible," "unbelievable" and "fabulous" also seemed to get quite a conversational workout in this gathering.

What began four years ago as an idea for a small weekend retreat soon morphed into plans for a full-time, lodge-style homestead where Kip Fulks, one of the founding partners in Under Armour sports apparel, and his wife, Beth, could find permanent refuge. "We wanted to build a house where we could grow old together," said Kip Fulks, the 39-year-old senior vice president of outdoor and innovation for Under Armour. "[So] we had to build a home that would be exciting to wake up to every day. " Susan Major, owner of the Hestia Design Group in Columbia, was a key player in the house's story from the very beginning, as the Fulks admired her work and took her on board as decorator and adviser.

Nowadays, it is a rare treat to see the word coddies on a menu, but not so long ago this uniquely Baltimore food was as close as your corner store, malt shop or confectionery. Coddies are not to be confused with cod cakes. While recipes for coddies vary, a coddie can be best described as a hand-formed, gently seasoned mashed-potato-and-cracker mixture that is always deep-fried and traditionally served between two saltine crackers topped with yellow mustard. It contains little or no cod. Served at room temperature, today's coddies are made slightly larger than in the past, hanging over the sides of the saltines by one-half inch all around.

HOUSTON -- If there are two adjectives to describe the Republican Party as its national convention opens here, they are pessimistic and defensive.This was nowhere clearer than in the rhetoric of President Bush and his putative allies on the eve of the first session. Senate Minority Leader Bob Dole, for example, showed up on NBC to shoot down the idea that the president can solve his problem by proposing a tax cut in his acceptance speech. Mr. Bush, he conceded, "does need to make some dramatic statements" to get his campaign on track, but "a tax cut by itself . . . would be bad medicine" and, anyway, couldn't be enacted until next year.

Mark Wahlberg proved himself a dynamo as a motormouth in The Departed, so it's disappointing to see him play the strong silent type in Shooter. Who ever thought that type was so American, anyway? From Davy Crockett to Crockett and Tubbs it's been hard to get American heroes to shut up. What was funny and charming about Gary Cooper in his early Western roles was that you could see his mind searching for more words than he knew how to pronounce and more thoughts than he could articulate. But Bob Lee Swagger is a man of no adjectives and few verbs or nouns.

IT CAME AS a surprise to us at The Sun to learn, via one of Rep. Robert L. Ehrlich's televised campaign ads, that the newspaper had paid him this glowing compliment: "So honest, it hurts."We have said nice things about the 2nd District congressman and former state lawmaker before. Indeed, he was our choice in the 1994 congressional election. But we could not remember making the remark attributed to this newspaper. For good reason.We didn't.The congressman's mother did. In an Aug. 17, 1994, profile of Mr. Ehrlich that appeared in the Maryland section, his mom was quoted as saying that she had told her son: "You don't want to do that [run for political office.
