Rotten: The most dispiriting thing about "Something Borrowed" is that with a little more art, craft and wit it could have been a lot better, maybe even good.
- A.O. Scott, New York Times, Thursday, May 5, 2011
Rotten: 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.

Rotten: Krasinski is, once again, the best thing about a romantic comedy.
- Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, Thursday, May 5, 2011
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.

Cast: Ginnifer Goodwin, Kate Hudson, Colin Egglesfield, John Krasinski, Steve Howey, Ashley Williams, Geoff Pierson, Jill Eikenberry, Jonathan Epstein Director: Luke Greenfield Summary: When successful single lawyer Rachel (Ginnifer Goodwin) learns that her best friend, Darcy (Kate Hudson), is engaged to Dex (Colin Egglesfield) -- the same guy she's pined after for years -- she's determined to maintain her loyalty. But things don't go quite as planned. Instead, she and Dex wind up in bed on the night of her 30th birthday party. Not surprisingly, the fallout from their romantic "slip" generates awkwardness for all concerned. My Thoughts: "As typical and predictable as the next rom-com. But I did enjoy it just a little more then I thought I would. I loved John Krasinski in this film and I don't think he was used enough. His character was the only honest, genuine, funny character worth watching or liking. Steve Howey as Marcus was very funny as well. He made the film more enjoyable too. The three main leads were just OK, although I do usually like their acting. The film kind of romanticizes cheating. You want to root for Dex and Rachel, but you want to dislike them at the same time. It was hard for me to believe that Rachel could even think to destroy her relationship with Darcy that she has had for so long. I'm sure it happens and as the film goes, you find out what the outcome from it is. It's an unfortunate position to be in. Makes you wonder if yourself was in that position what would you choose, love or friendship?"
