Something Borrowed

Something BorrowedRachel (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. Meanwhile, Ethan (John Krasinski), Rachel’s constant confidante and sometimes conscience, is busy evading the affection of Darcy’s hopelessly love-struck friend Claire (Ashley Williams) while harboring a secret crush of his own; and the charming and irrepressible Marcus (Steve Howey) has designs on Rachel that don’t necessarily exclude any other woman who catches his eye. — (C) Warner Bros

One Review for “Something Borrowed”

  1. Something Borrowed which stars Kate Hudson and Ginnifer Goodwin is probably one of the worst films of the year. In fact, I almost cannot say anything good about it. I saw it on Saturday night because “Bridesmaids” was sold out and regretted almost every minute of it.

    It is a shame that a talented actress like Ginnifer Goodwin had to be associated with this ordeal. In the film, she plays Rachel who is about to see her best friend Darcy (Hudson) marry the love of her life. Just like Bridesmaids the film tracks the lifelong friendship of Darcy and Rachel. However, unlike Bridesmaids, Darcy is a totally unlikable character and you just cannot see what Rachel would be doing with her since their childhood.

    As in Bridesmaids, all of the men are superfluous. They are not needed and are basically there for eye candy. All of the drama, what little there is of it, occurs between the two leads. And, there is almost not a laugh in the entire movie, although there were quite a lot of groans coming out of the audience at some of the ridiculous plot points.

    Just to give an example without giving any spoilers,there is a scene near the end of the film in which Rachel goes to London to visit a close friend. He makes a revelation to her that should drive the finale of the movie. Instead the revelation takes about five minutes of screen time and then has absolutely nothing to do with how the film ends. In fact, his character is then forgotten and the love triangle continues between Darcy, Rachel and the fiance. The entire scene could have been cut from the movie and no one would have missed it.

    The Fiance, Dex, played by Colin Egglesfield does not have a redeeming quality about him and comes off like a wimp in the majority of the film. By the end of the movie, I simply could not understand why Rachel cared about him or wanted to be with him. It almost seems that Dex and Darcy should end up together. In fact, you get the feeling that they were made for each other.

    This movie is such a mess that even the tech credits are bad. The film could have used a more talented editor or, at least, one who knew when to cut out of a scene. And, the film needed a Hair and Makeup artist for Ms. Goodwin with some talent. There are scenes were Ms. Goodwin is supposed to playing 30 in which she looks like a 15 year old girl and other scenes that are flashbacks to her younger days in which she is supposed to be early 20′s where she looks older than when she is supposed to be 30.

    That alone should say it all. This film gets zero stars.
