Something Borrowed

Kate Hudson, Ginnifer Goodwin, John Krasinski, Colin Egglesfield

Goodwin plays Rachel, an attorney just turning 30 who wants to make some changes to her life. She is perpetually single and perpetually overshadowed by her blonde and vivacious best friend Darcy (Hudson). Darcy is engaged to Dex, Rachel’s old college friend. Rachel and Dex didn’t manage to get it together back then, so Darcy charged in and snapped him up.

But now Rachel reveals old feelings for Dex and they have an affair, throwing a huge spanner in the works. The situation proves difficult for Dex who has to chose between the two women. And, of course, the relationship between the two best friends will never be the same again.

Hudson always does a great job in a role like this, and Goodwin shines as usual.  Great supporting role by John Krasinski who is the ineffectual male friend. This is a harmless rom com with some fairly typical rom com features – cheating fiances, pre-wedding problems, best friends fighting over a guy etc. If you love your rom coms, then it’s one to watch.
