Product Description

Rachel (Ginnifer Goodwin) is a talented attorney at a top New York law firm, a generous and loyal friend, and, unhappily, still single... as her engaged best friend Darcy (Kate Hudson) is constantly reminding her. But after celebrating her 30th birthday, perpetual good girl Rachel unexpectedly ends up in the arms of the guy she's had a crush on since law school, Dex (Colin Egglesfield)... who just happens to be Darcy's fiancé.

As one thing leads to another in the frantic weeks leading up to Darcy's wedding, Rachel finds herself in an impossible situation, caught between her treasured friendship with Darcy and the love of her life.

Something Borrowed also stars John Krasinski as Ethan, Rachel's constant confidante and sometimes conscience, who is busy evading the affection of Darcy's hopelessly lovestruck friend Claire (Ashley Williams) while harbouring a secret crush of his own; and Steve Howey as the charming and irrepressible Marcus, whose designs on Rachel don't necessarily exclude any other woman who catches his eye.

From Amazon.co.uk

Chick-lit lovers, and those who love them, will flock to Something Borrowed, a frothy adaptation of Emily Giffin's bestselling novel. Something Borrowed itself borrows some of the best bits from earlier romantic comedies like When Harry Met Sally…, 27 Dresses, and Sex and the City. Though Kate Hudson is the ostensible Big Star here, it's Ginnifer Goodwin (Big Love, He's Just Not That into You) who finally comes into her own as a winsome leading lady. The plot is fairly simple: Rachel (Goodwin) harbours secret feelings for Dex (Colin Egglesfield), the fiancé of her best friend, Darcy (Hudson). Along for the ride, and acting as a sort of stage manager/narrator à la Our Town, is Ethan (John Krasinski), who just may be harbouring some secret longings of his own. Will the right boys end up with the right girls? Well, Something Borrowed is one of those comfy films in which the viewer knows who's right for whom long before the characters do. And because of the light, easy direction of Luke Greenfield (whose previous works are mostly TV movies and series), and the sparky chemistry among the stars, Something Borrowed ends up delivering a delicious snack even more satisfying than the sum of its yummy parts. Krasinski, Egglesfield, and especially Goodwin shine in this ensemble, and fans of modern love stories--with a twist--will want to hold on to Something Borrowed. --A.T. Hurley

I enjoyed Something Borrowed. There are tear-jerking moments, comic moments and moments of incredulity, the basis for all rom-coms. However, what puzzled (and slightly annoyed) me about this moviewas that some of the things the characters did were simply immoral and would probably be deemed unforgive
able in the real world. In what world is it okay to take your best friends fiancee? I guess as the story goes on it becomes more acceptable as we learn of the reasonings behind each character and the secrets that they're witholding from each other. If you ignore the fact that there are serious issues of morality it is still a comical, but highly predictable, entertaining way to spend an hour and three quarters.

Some aspects of the story are very preditctable and you can see them coming before the opening credits are even on the screen, but there are other parts of the story that are unexpected and you have to wait until the end to find out how everybody's lives pan out. I guess in this way it keeps the viewer interesting and ensures they carry on watching. Whilst many new relationships are formed, many are also destroyed, and it bothers me that one that had been consistent through out did not really draw to a particularly happy close.

Despite its numerous faults I still thought that Something Borrowed did the rom-com genre proud and filled its role perfectly. For anyone desperate for proof that true love does exist, then I guess this is movie for you!

I loved this film. It was romantic and funny, especially the dance scene. It's no Oscar winner but a pleasant rom-com and Colin Egglesfield is quite pleasant to look at too!

I was really looking forward to seeing this but what could have been a interesting, funny story was let down by tired old jokes about lets get drunk and act really horrible to each other. I love Ginnifer Goodwin in Once Upon a Time and in this film she is absolutely great and almost saves the film. Unfortunately the film focus a little too much on Kate Hudson who is an absolute nightmare. I am glad she is not my friend. I don't know why Rachael continues to want to please her. The male lead Colin Egglesfield is irritating and really needs to grow a backbone, he also looks too much like Tom Cruise for my liking. I loved Rachael and Ethan way more than the other two and found their scenes and story way more interesting than anything else in the film.

wanted to see this film when it was first shown but never got the chance. i took a chance and bought it knowing the chances were id like it and i can honestly say it was worth it. enjoyed it from start to finish and it's a film i know i will watch again am now going to read the books! i know some people will have different opinions about the affair element but it isnt done in a way that makes you think its malicious or that they are enjoying the fact that its going to hurt people. ITS COMPLICATED also got mixed reviews about that aspect but i think that was also a good film. i would recommend this film to a friend i think its worth seeing plus colin egglesfield i really fit just an added bonus! hope they make the sequel

Because I watch chick flicks, does it mean I have to have arrested development? I switched this off after 10 minutes, but decided to give it another chance (having paid for it!). I'm glad I did, so I can tell you about it. Once I got over the betrayal bit, I got a bit peeved at how poorly the characters were drawn without any nuances. Talk about unsubtle! Let's see: there is a GOOD and there is an EVIL girl. There is male hero, torn between what he wants and duty. There is the loser friend, who loves and loses. The whole film is let down by the simplistically drawn characters that are the protagonists.

This could have been really something. However, poor Kate Hudson, the evil blonde, got to do her funny bit from "How to lose a guy in 10 days" all over again, except it was serious. You do wonder how the male lead ever fell in love with her, and how our sweet, dark and good heroine has been been a doormat all her life to her supposed Best Friend. How much better it could have been to have a more realistic friendship, which would really have cranked up the angst of the betrayal. I suppose with that in mind, it's hard to feel sorry for anyone in this film, except the poor pining friend who's the only one with an IQ. Not even a laugh to be had...Sorry, it was just so so. There is a redeeming bit at the end, where Kate Hudson is allowed a bit of emotion. Might watch the sequel just to check it was that bad...;-)
Would recommend for early teens to keep a sleepover quiet..

Bought this film after seeing Ginnifer Goodwin in He's Just Not That Into You, and because I am a fan of Kate Hudson. This film was worth a watch and a nice story, although I probably wouldn't be in a hurry to watch again.
