Ileana’s Movie Review: Something Borrowed

Warner Bros.

Starring: Ginnifer Goodwin, Kate Hudson, Colin Egglesfield, John Krasinski

Summary: Rachel (Goodwin) is a lawyer who has always lived in the shadow of her best friend Darcy (Hudson). While attending law school Rachel meets Dex (Egglesfield) and the two have an instant connection but are too shy to make a move. But when Darcy meets Dex she doesn’t hesitate and steals him from Rachel. Fast forward six years into the future and Dex and Darcy are just months away from their wedding. On the night of her 30th birthday Rachel confesses her feelings to Dex only to find that he feels the same way. Things get complicated when the two consummate their love, and now Dex has to choose which woman to spend the rest of his life with.

Some people really like this movie but I’m just not one of them. This movie, like so many lately, is based on a book which I’m sure is better. My biggest problem with this film is that I’ve never found the idea of infidelity particularly romantic. It would’ve been one thing if Dex and Rachel slept together, admitted it, and then lived happily ever after. Instead the affair drags on because everyone involved is too chicken to come clean. I understand that in real life love is complicated and painful. But I don’t want go to a movie to face reality, I want to escape it. The only thing I enjoyed was John Krasinski’s character Ethan. He was the voice of reason and much-needed comedic relief. I saw this movie because I like all the actors in it, but unfortunately I didn’t like their characters.
Trivia: Peter Facinelli and Colin Farrell were considered to play Dex and Marcus respectively.
Rated: PG-13 – For sexual content including dialogue, and some drug material.
Grade: C
