Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The movie is merely a joke-stoked soap opera; its bare-bones plot leaves the characters unrealized and the situations undefined."
‑ Richard Brody, New Yorker
"The movie strains far too hard to make what Rachel and Dex have done all right, as if their guilty anguish - and the movie's saccharine score - frees us to root for them."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"From its empty soul to its poorly framed shots ready for pan-and-scan conversion, Something Borrowed seems primed to play on Saturday afternoons on E!, sandwiched between reruns of Keeping Up with the Kardashians..."
‑ Kimber Myers, The Playlist
"No romantic drama has ever been so misguided and eager for you to root against its characters. This tacky, morally abhorrent film is unbearable."
‑ Shaun Munro, What Culture
"You'd have a lot more fun sharing a few Heinekens than wasting your time on this movie in which lies build upon lies until the whole plot comes crashing down."
‑ Linda Cook, KWQC-TV (Iowa)
"The film seems to think that we will find something entertaining about Darcy just because she's played by Kate Hudson. It's hard to imagine a worse miscalculation."
‑ Eric D. Snider,
"In Something Borrowed, Kate Hudson looks exhausted, as if she is as tired of wading through another one of her feckless duds as we are of watching them."
‑ Adam Graham, Detroit News
"Chemistry-free casting (Ginnifer Goodwin and John Krasinski) and a flawed premise, not the recipe for a great romance"
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
"While Something Borrowed obviously wants to explore themes of competitiveness and betrayal in female friendships, it seems to feel compelled to hit pre-programmed chick flick beats at regular intervals."
‑ Mike McGranaghan, Aisle Seat
"Prepare to leave feeling something blue."
‑ , Total Film
""Inept and implausible in almost every way, Something Borrowed is the smug rom-com answer to the Apatowian man-child comedy.""
‑ Logan Hill, New York Magazine/Vulture
""Something Borrowed" is something ... ew."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"The work of the lead trio keeps the movie from ever becoming something blue."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"It's neither romantic nor comedic. Sort of defeats the whole point of the exercise, you know?"
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"...a passable romcom that just barely gets the job done..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
