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.
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

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!
Definitely worth a watch!
Great casting and acting. They couldn't have picked a better cast for this film.
There are so many twists and turns along the way. And i loved how the film ended. Part way through you think you know how its going to end but it soon changes.
Kate H in this film was horrible (her character) especially how she was treating her best friend and everyone else around her. If anyone felt sorry for kates character i didnt at all especially when everything is revealed at the end.
Not going to spoil the story incasd people havent seen it and just wanted to look at comments to see whether it was worth buying and my answer is yes it is!!!! The story line is interesting and never boring.
When you first watch this i suppose part of the story is predictable but you change your mind so many times during the film. I love this film i could watch it over and over and not get bored.
