There is one thing that I hate a lot and that is dumb down comedy with no joy or sign of heart and spirit. This movie was boring and dull scenes of characters doing nothing but talk about the stuff that makes them happy or sad.

Rachel's bestfriend Darcy is about to marry with Dex- Rachel's classmate on law school. While Darcy's busy planning her wedding, Rachel and Dex has something going, something which started on the law school, something borrowed. *** I want to say that I really appreciate movies with multiple climax, like Crazy Stupid Love which is definitely better than this one. I love the story, but conclusions seemed to be incomplete. And, for sure, there will be lots of viewers who will question the movie in terms of its friendship value. For me, it was only Ethon's character who thinks rationally and actually the one who make sense. Direction, design, performances, over-all, not bad.

After reading the book of the same name, I absolutely could not wait to see this movie. While in my opinion it didn't come close to competing with the book...it was great and definitely on my list of favorites. To me it isn't your normal romantic comedy where in the end everything turns out okay. While the couple ends up together in the end, things are exactly cut and dry getting to that point.

Luke Greenfield's romantic 'comedy' has more comedy than romance and I was chuckling and laughing out loud at many of the scenes throughout although I think the more expected reaction was a sniffle or two. But what’s not to chuckle about a guy Dex (Tom Cruise look-a-like, Colin Egglesfield), who cannot decide if he should marry his longtime fiancée Darcy (Kate Hudson) or break it off and be with the one he truly loves Rachel (Ginnifer Goodwin). Oh Decisions, decisions!
The two girls have been best friends since forever. Rachel is a lawyer who grew up watching the overbearing Darcy get everything she wants. Darcy has even managed to get herself engaged to Dex, the guy Rachel had a crush on since law school. Meanwhile, Darcy is trying to pair Rachel off with a moronic player named …

Something Borrowed was not your typical chick flick in which everything worked out in the end. Even so the whole plot felt done before. Girl want guy, guy want girl, they get to together for a while and everything is fine then, something gets in the way to complicates the relationship and throws them off for a while, they work it out and in the end they in up together. The difference between this movie and almost EVERY other chick flick is the man happens to be the girl’s best friend’s man, just to throw a twist in there.
The acting was very well done. Ginnifer Goodwin did a grand job playing the beautiful but hopelessly single girl who doesn’t know a thing about how to date. Kat Hudson plays and slutty the annoying best friend so well you will want to slap her yourself. Colin …
