Something Borrowed (2011) Review By Michael Heath

Director: Luke Greenfield
Writer: Jennie Snyder (Screenplay) Emily Giffin (Novel)
Stars: Ginnifer Goodwin, Kate Hudson and Colin Egglesfield
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance

This the tale of one girls choice between her best friend and her true love. Not an Oscar winning film but as far a chick flicks go this one was pretty good.

Rachel (Ginnifer Goodwin) the main character of are story, she went to college with Dex (Colin Egglesfield) they both studied the same course, after graduating college, Darcy (Kate Hudson) Rachel's best friend is introduced to Dex. Our story begins however 6 years later on the night of Rachel's 30th birthday surprise party where the audience is filled in on how these three know each other and that Dex and Darcy are engaged to be married. As the night comes to an end Rachel and Dex are alone and after talking with her old college friend Rachel reveals to Dex that she had a crush on him in college where shortly after Dex kisses Rachel, and this is only the beginning.

This is not just your run of the mill chick flick they focus on the past as well as the present filling in the grey area's such as how Darcy meets Dex. After watching the film I must say it did start to become like watching a game of tennis with some back and forth within the story but overall it's definitely worth a watch.

Rating: 5/10
