August 15, 2013
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...

January 12, 2013
Chemistry-free casting (Ginnifer Goodwin and John Krasinski) and a flawed premise, not the recipe for a great romance
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
February 7, 2012
The work of the lead trio keeps the movie from ever becoming something blue.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

No romantic drama has ever been so misguided and eager for you to root against its characters. This tacky, morally abhorrent film is unbearable.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
August 10, 2011
It's neither romantic nor comedic. Sort of defeats the whole point of the exercise, you know?
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10

This is another supposedly female-friendly motion picture that secretly hates women, making both of its main two characters as unappealing as possible seemingly every step of the way.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

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.

Prepare to leave feeling something blue.

...a passable romcom that just barely gets the job done...
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

An intoxicated condition might be the best one in which to watch this terrible movie.
Full Review | Original Score: D

The book was good but the movie is not. Too many unlikable characters without any softening.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

I was grasping at straws to find anyone in the film that acted like a normal human being with a moral center.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

It's the Transformers of chick-flicks, a brain-stabbing hundred minutes of brutal hurtness.
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/5
May 12, 2011
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

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.
May 11, 2011
Some of the most utterly unlikable characters you've ever met. The exception is Kate Hudson's Darcy, who is completely detestable.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

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