In spite of solid performances from Kate Hudson and John Krasinski, Something Borrowed is an unpleasant misfire that lives down to its title.

The movie is merely a joke-stoked soap opera; its bare-bones plot leaves the characters unrealized and the situations undefined.
The film seems to think that we will find something entertaining about Darcy just because she's played by Kate Hudson. It's hard to imagine a worse miscalculation.
"Inept and implausible in almost every way, Something Borrowed is the smug rom-com answer to the Apatowian man-child comedy."
The movie strains far too hard to make what Rachel and Dex have done all right, as if their guilty anguish - and the movie's saccharine score - frees us to root for them.
In Something Borrowed, Kate Hudson looks exhausted, as if she is as tired of wading through another one of her feckless duds as we are of watching them.
"Something Borrowed" is something ... ew.
My Best Friend's Wedding covered a simliar subject 1000x times better AND funnier. Rent that instead of this.
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.
I watched it because I like Ginnifer Goodwin's acting. But besides her being cute, it was a somewhat dumb movie.
It's a thin line between love and friendship.
Saw it again! Very good movie. I just can't help to enjoy chick flicks like this one. The story to me was very enjoyable and kept me indulge in it the whole time. Nice funny young cast to go along a nice screenplay.
Rachel is a lawyer. When she was in law school she fell for another student Dex who comes from an affluent family. But she's too shy to say anything. When Dex meets her best friend Darcy who treats her like dirt sometimes, who was visiting her, she makes a move on him and gets him. Eventually they get engaged and Darcy asks Rachel to be her Maid of Honor. But Rachel stills has feelings for Dex and still can't say anything. But when Darcy throws her a birthday party and Dex is there. When she and gets Dex are alone, she blurts out that she had a thing for him in college which surprised him. And after drinking a little they spend the night together. They try to forget the whole thing but can't but agree that it means nothing. But Ethan, Rachel close friend tells her that she'll spend her entire life regretting that if she does nothing.
Good chick flick. I liked the characters even though they were all pretty much cheaters and hard to feel sorry for - I think that is a credit to the cast to be able to say that!
Decent story and not silly as some of these movies can be , even in spite of Kate Hudson's over the top Darcy.
At over two hours long this recycled and totally unbelievable mess of a movie had me close to welling up with tears of boredom rather than emotion. After seeing "Bride Wars" a few years ago, I fear that Kate Hudson who delivered so well in "Almost Famous" earlier in her career, is drifting into the stereotypical "bridezilla" best friend who has nothing in between her ears but air. Irritating cast, especially Goodwin, with the only one redeeming feature being the sexually frustrated Kransinski and the ever hilarious Steve Howey as Marcus. Aside from the basic comedy elements of this movie, it felt like I had already seen it a million times and no one needed a guide book to know how this bad boy ended. Dissapointing, but expectedly so.
