As one thing leads to another in the frantic weeks leading up to Darcy's wedding, Rachel finds herself in an impossible situation, caught between her treasured friendship with Darcy and the love of her life.
Romantic Comedy - This romantic comedy-drama is not a vehicle for Kate Hudson as it
appears to be but more of a starring showcase for Ginnifer Goodwin;
similarly, the male lead here is Colin Egglesfield and not the more
known John Krasinski, who has a fairly small supporting role.
Language and adult subject matter makes the film inappropriate for
PROFANITY: 1 F-word; 9 S-words; 1 GD; a number of others. SEX/NUDITY: Loud sex noises. VIOLENCE: A hit. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Frequent alcohol. ACTION: None. COMEDY: Comic banter and some physical gags; gay humor.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Average Something Borrowed is overlong and at times tedious; the taste is gritty and lingers unpleasantly.
Roger EbertFull Review Average 'Something Borrowed' gathers an undeniable narrative momentum in its last half, because all of the characters are treated sincerely and played in a straightforward style. It's just that we don't love them enough...
USA TodayFull Review Below Average Audiences interested in marriage-minded Millennials would do better watching reruns of last week's royal wedding.
Washington PostFull Review Below Average A few laughs ultimately give way to the tiresome realization that these three less-than-likable personalities probably deserve one another. It's just a shame anyone has to watch them figure that out.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 89 moviegoers:
TEENS:GREAT REVIEWS from the ladies! Nearly three-quarters loved it with most of the rest rating it above average, which indicates a movie they enjoyed very much.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:As the female age increases the reviews get slightly lower but these are still very good reviews. They show that just over half loved "Something Borrowed," with a good portion of the rest enjoying it very much. There were a fair number who only rated it as good/average, which is a bit disappointing but not bad. The three male reviews are OK and the 14 adult male reviews are actually good for this type of movie.
ADULTS:From these reviews "Something Borrowed" appears to be more of a young persons movie. The teen and twentysomething female reviews are great but these female reviews are just good. They show that about a quarter loved it, half enjoyed it very much and the rest were slightly disappointed. The males actually rated it slightly higher than the females.
