No credits of cast just the producer and distributor
Black Background, fancy pink coloured font fades into intro of Film
Text titled “27 Dresses” is faded in and faded out within 2 seconds , “1986” is faded in and out within 2 seconds just after.
How Effective was this
I found that the credits are simple and they where no credits of who was in the movie but only the distributor and producer at the beginning. I found it a little disappointing that they was no mention of who was in the movie.
