From its empty soul to its poorly framed shots ready for pan-and-scan conversion, Something Borrowed seems primed to play on Saturday afternoons on E!, sandwiched between reruns of Keeping Up with the Kardashians...

Chemistry-free casting (Ginnifer Goodwin and John Krasinski) and a flawed premise, not the recipe for a great romance

The work of the lead trio keeps the movie from ever becoming something blue.

No romantic drama has ever been so misguided and eager for you to root against its characters. This tacky, morally abhorrent film is unbearable.

While Something Borrowed obviously wants to explore themes of competitiveness and betrayal in female friendships, it seems to feel compelled to hit pre-programmed chick flick beats at regular intervals.

It's neither romantic nor comedic. Sort of defeats the whole point of the exercise, you know?

You'd have a lot more fun sharing a few Heinekens than wasting your time on this movie in which lies build upon lies until the whole plot comes crashing down.

...a passable romcom that just barely gets the job done...

An intoxicated condition might be the best one in which to watch this terrible movie.

The book was good but the movie is not. Too many unlikable characters without any softening.

It should have borrowed some charm.

As a wedding drama which feels like we've seen it 1,000 times before, Something Borrowed certainly lives up to the 'seen-it-all-before' title.

I was grasping at straws to find anyone in the film that acted like a normal human being with a moral center.

It's the Transformers of chick-flicks, a brain-stabbing hundred minutes of brutal hurtness.

Even though it's chick-flicky with men who are either girly men or brutish clods, Goodwin and Krasinsky (in the Tony Randall role) give good performances.

If you met any of these people in real life, you'd head for the hills; here, we're trapped with them for the duration, and it feels like a season in hell.

Some of the most utterly unlikable characters you've ever met. The exception is Kate Hudson's Darcy, who is completely detestable.

Spineless people slowly falling in love is painless to watch. 'Something Borrowed' now stands as proof of this.

The genre always assumes we'll sympathize with ugly, soulless, personality-free women doing terrible things... But even grading on that rom-com curve, this is a disgusting movie...
