The scenario in Something Borrowed is nothing new. Cruel Intentions was a film that dealt with the consequences of betrayal in a manner reminiscent of a Shakespearian play. Despite the problems with Cruel Intentions, there was a bite and cruelty to oppose the sentimentality. Something Borrowed makes no attempt to bringing any moral argument to the table. It is merely a saccharine love fest with some of the most immensely irritating characters imaginable.
Darcy (Kate Hudson – Bride Wars) and Rachel (Ginnifer Goodwin – Ed) have been best friends their whole lives. Darcy is engaged to one of Rachel’s old college friends named Dex (Colin Egglesfield – Must Love Dogs), someone she had strong feelings for but never acted on. One drunken night Rachel mistakenly tells Dex that she had a crush on him and they kiss. To make matters worse they end up spending the night together. Can Rachel do the right thing and step away from the man she has been in love with for years or is her friendship to Darcy too important?
TMP takes a look at the latest romantic comedy to hit theaters. While the premise is fairly interesting and the performances are on par with any other movie of this nature, it's lacking it's own presence and can't stand well amongst the crowd.
Mushy and implausible and predictable it gets, yet it’s charming, funny, and pleasant – a nice way to spend a night out with your date. Full review by Chris Pandolfi.
