Something Borrowed, Movie Review

Friendships are tested and secrets come to surface when terminally single Rachel falls for Dex, her best friend Darcy's fiance.

I was searching yesterday, movies that I haven't seen and this one popped in frond of my screen. And then I realized that I haven't made a review about this one, which is funny, because I've seen it two months ago.

Before starting my review, I'd like to tell you about the day I watched it. Some girls and I planned to go to the movies after our morning lesson. The weather was hummid and soon enough it started raining. And obviously none of us had an umbrella. The movie was on the early afternoon and we had decided to go for shopping and lunch at the mall, where the movie was playing. Due to the rain, we all were a little wet and our hair were destroyed-well, the others hair, because mine was a ponytail-as we reached the mall we were really pissed, because the rain had stopped and the sun was high(I mean, it was raining only for the five-ten minutes of walk to the tube, how disturbing was that). We couldn't do much shopping, because we didn't really had much time, but we find some to buy one or two things. As for the lunch, well, ice-cream fixed our mood.

Now, about the movie. Rachel was in love with Dex since college. One night she introduse him to her best friend, Darcy. When she realizes that Darcy likes Dex she steps out of the equation, like best friends do. After many years after a party and some drinks, she tells Dex her true feelings. And then the complicated things begin as Dex realizes that he may have feelings for Rachel and Rachel tries to figure out what she's going to do with these feelings she just revealed.

The dialogues were really good and funny in many points. As for the directing part, I wasn't expecting it. I thought the story would be presented in a straingt line, instead there were flash-backs of the college years and the characters meeting. Also the movie had many twists. I couldn't believe that a romantic comedy would make me anxious but it kind of did. The actors were also good, suitable for the roles and funny. As for the end, I was the only one who wasn't expecting it. I can't tell you, of course, but my thinking is a little complicated and the end was so simple that surpriced me.

Bottom line, I think that it was a great movie. It's totally girly and it was the perfect end of the girly day I had. I recommend it to you girls out there. I think it's suitable for a girl's night. Last but not least, sorry boys out there for not recommend it to you, but it's not for you.

P.S.1: I'm not usually doing those kind of days and if I had to choose I'd prefer an action film instead, so we can analyze it afterwards. Not that we didn't analyze this one too.
P.S.2: The movie is based on a book. I haven't read it, so I couldn't made a clear review based on the differences and the similarities.


  1. The book is really great, and since you liked the movie you should definitely read it! I will absolutely be seeing this movie.

  2. I want to see this one!! Nice to know you liked it ^^
    And better late than never ;)

  3. i really want to watch that!

    thnx for the review!

  4. Just watched it!!! It was so good! And you are right about the ending. I wasn't expecting something that simple either. Didn't turn out how i thought it was.

    And i totally loved the whole story and the actors. They had a nice chemistry.

  5. i watched it too..well i liked it! it was a fun watch, i liked the actors too. Kate Hudson is one of my favorite actresses and i always enjoy her movies, but i liked Dex so much,i don't know if he is a good actor, but he is so hot!!

    the story though was not that good..Dex and Rachel were so stupid at law school and Darcys character was very unrealistic..

    to sum up, nina thanks for the review, i enjoyed it and yes, it made me anxious too!!
