Consensus: In spite of solid performances from Kate Hudson and John Krasinski, Something Borrowed is an unpleasant misfire that lives down to its title.

Richard Brody
New Yorker

The movie is merely a joke-stoked soap opera; its bare-bones plot leaves the characters unrealized and the situations undefined.

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.

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.

New York Magazine/Vulture

"Inept and implausible in almost every way, Something Borrowed is the smug rom-com answer to the Apatowian man-child comedy."

The work of the lead trio keeps the movie from ever becoming something blue.

I watched it because I like Ginnifer Goodwin's acting. But besides her being cute, it was a somewhat dumb movie.

At over two hours long this recycled and totally unbelievable mess of a movie had me close to welling up with tears of boredom rather than emotion. After seeing… More

It's a thin line between love and friendship. Saw it again! Very good movie. I just can't help to enjoy chick flicks like this one. The story to me… More

Good chick flick. I liked the characters even though they were all pretty much cheaters and hard to feel sorry for - I think that is a credit to the cast to be… More

I read this book, and it was good. The movie was cute, in most ways...but I kept thinking throughout how this could be much better. Plus, I think that they… More
