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

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

Like a trashy paperback you take to the beach, I'm not proud of liking it and I'm not saying it doesn't have problems, but in the end I kind of enjoyed it anyway.

Although 'Something Borrowed' deals with serious love vs. friendship issues, Kate Hudson's performance is over-the-top funny.

Hudson and Goodwin have great chemistry together. Krasinski does the best acting job and steals every scene he appears in. The cinematography, scenic New York locations and a romantic soundtrack are added bonuses.

Compared to last year's Sex and the City 2, this is a breath of fresh air. For those who enjoy the great romantic comedies, though, Something Borrowed hasn't borrowed enough.

The tension between the film's happy public surface and the thorny interior themes of guilt and deception gives the movie a perhaps unintentional 'romcom noir' distinctiveness.

Something Borrowed is a snappy rom com about intersecting desires among a group of twenty-something friends.

A genial cast and moderately funny script prevail over the sort of sappy music cues and white-bread settings that have become the grating norm in Hollywood rom-coms.

Doesn't always evade the traps of convention, but it is the first film of its kind in a while with an ending that isn't such an obvious foregone conclusion.

Kate Hudson's amusing portrait of an egomaniacal frenemy is the best reason to see this overextended soap opera.

Occasionally chuckle-worthy and seldom awful or stupid. It's an emotionally intelligent film, if not an outstandingly amusing one.

A soul-searching chick flick that really clicks.

Greenfield stumbles on occasions but it aims at some sort of honesty and for the most part achieves it.

As odd as it seems, Something Borrowed grows on you as it wears on, primarily because its characters are relatively unlikeable for a film of this type.

It made me like it against my will and despite my biases, and it made me like that I liked it. I enjoyed its walk of shame.

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

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