Something Borrowed

MPAA Rating: PG-13 for sexual content including dialogue, and some drug material.
Something Borrowed is a romantic comedy starring two Hollywood starlets, Kate Hudson and Ginnifer Goodwin. The film is based on a book by Emily Giffin. The film is essentially about two young women who have been friends their whole lives and share everything, including men. Through this debacle of a situation, they show their true colors toward each other and true friends will be sorted out from the other people in their lives who were considered to be important to the leading ladies. Although the film is cute and all, it lacks the unpredictability factor. The audience can almost sense what is going to happen next and it makes for dull moments when they should really be interesting. John Krasinski stars as a friend of Goodwin's and provides ample comic relief, much like his character did in "It's Complicated"- come to think of it, it feels like he was transported through film and the same character was inserted into this movie. Still, it was fresh and provided me with several "aha" moments in a film that was otherwise very cliché. 2 out of 4 stars.
