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.

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.

I have always loved Kate Hudson as an actress and this is another great film from her. Her characters never fail to make me laugh but I can't help but think that this isn't as good as her other films. Although still a great film and would definitely reccomend it!

This is a romantic comedy that tries to change the formula around, and some of it works, and some of it fails. First, it has some very funny moments. John Krasinski has some very hilarious moments throughout the movie. He is by far the best actor and most likeable character in the film. I also really liked the way the movie told the story of Rachel(Ginnifer Goodwin) and Dex's(Colin Egglesfield) relationship through flashbacks. Not many rom-com's do that, and I think it really worked here. My biggest hang up with this is the ending. It's not a satisfying conclusion at all. I really didn't care for Darcy(Kate Hudson), and thought that Rachel would do much better than what she ended up doing. God, I sound like a girl in junior high. My wife really liked it, so I guess it met it's target audience(women). But for me, other than the ending, it was a very enjoyable film. There are a lot worse movies like this out, trust me, I've sat through most of them:-p
