Movie Review: Something Borrowed

Thelma Adams
6 May 2011
  • Excerpt: What’s a good girl ( Ginnifer Goodwin ) to do after she beds her BFF ( Kate Hudson )’s fiance — and decides she wants him for herself? That’s the premise of this sitcomlike romantic comedy (based on Emily Giffin ‘s book). Goodwin appeals as sweet Rachel, but Hudson overacts as self-centered Darcy, who is so unsympathetic the audience wonders how this friendship has survived since childhood.

Film review: 'Something Borrowed'

Las Vegas Weekly
4 May 2011
  • Excerpt: At least the makers of romantic comedies have finally figured out that Kate Hudson is obnoxious and overbearing instead of cute and loveable and have started casting her accordingly. In Something Borrowed , Hudson plays Darcy, a self-centered extrovert who’s engaged to hunky lawyer Dex (Colin Egglesfield, personifying blandness).

Expert Review

FILMDUDE
4 June 2013
  • Excerpt: If any actor is quoted saying it was the 'great script', which attracted them to this film, they are lying. Sure the movie promotes itself as a romantic comedy, but it fails in both genres. Every time there are glimpses of comedy, the script turns it on its head and it all becomes really deep. You almost feel sorry for the actors who try their best to make lemonade out of lemons.

Film Guide
13 July 2012
  • Excerpt: What is it about romance, one of the most well-defined genres in film and literature, that seems so hard to get right? Each year, countless vapid love stories flood the cinema (or more often the DVD shelf), polluting our screens with their noxious, saccharine presence. In 2011, Something Borrowed is perhaps the most offensive example; a pointless, over-long mess populated with unlikable characters and underdeveloped plots.

Something Borrowed

Nöjesguiden
5 June 2013
  • Excerpt: På samma sätt som att man förnekar mobiltelefonens existens i rom coms (missförstånd, sliding doors, att komma försent) är 30-åringars påhittade stolthet tydligen egenskap nog att bygga en hel film på. Min ringa erfarenhet av livet är att kärlek inte är så mycket stolthet som att förnedras och att förnedra och i bästa fall ha some good times mellan varven. Plotten i Something Borrowed är att Rachel (Ginnifer Goodwin) och Darcy (Kate Hudson) är bästa vänner.

Something borrowed

tros kompas
30 December 2011
  • Excerpt: Matige romantische komedie die niet erg grappig is en al helemaal niet romantisch. Het helpt ook niet dat het draait om een wonderlijke vriendschap tussen twee uitersten: een zelfingenomen losbol (Kate Hudson) en een onderdanig, eerlijk persoontje (Ginnifer Goodwin). Die laatste gaat vreemd met de verloofde van de eerste en dat zorgt voor een vreemde driehoeks-verhouding.

  • Excerpt: Something Borrowed er et romantisk drama med noen søte scener, men også med anstrengte forsøk på intriger og konfrontasjoner som er mer pinlige enn engasjerende. Det er bare å innse at dette ikke er ment for meg. Dette er en jentefilm, som menn kun vil se under tvang, eller – i mitt tilfelle – mot betaling. LES OGSÅ: Anmeldelsen av Blue Valentine ! Dette er et trekantdrama, hvor den ene kanten er uvitende om hva de to andre gjør.

  • Excerpt: Twee beste vriendinnen, een knappe verloofde, een dronken fout, overspeligheid en ruzie: alle ingrediënten die nodig zijn voor een mierzoete romantische komedie. Ook al hebben we het verhaal al duizend keer gehoord, Something Borrowed is alleen door John Krasinski al de moeite waard om te kijken.
