Something Borrowed starring Kate Hudson and Ginnifer Goodwin is a romantic comedy that’s more stupid than most romantic comedies tend to be. Goodwin stars as Rachel, a plain-Jane corporate lawyer who fell for her law-school buddy Dex (Colin Egglesfield) while they were still studying. But she stood back and watched as her best friend Darcy (Hudson) made a play for him. Six years later, Dex and Darcy are getting married and silently-suffering Rachel is gearing up to be Maid of Honor. But then, barely weeks before the wedding, Rachel accidentally confesses to Dex that she had a crush on him. They end up sleeping together, and Dex begins to think he might be in love with Rachel after all. Which leaves him with the unenviable job of either calling off the wedding with Darcy, or breaking Rachel’s heart all over again.

As an audience it’s not particularly hard to take sides, considering Darcy is a selfish woman who isn’t particularly nice to her best friend and who cheats on her fiancé. But hey, Dex is hardly a paragon of virtue; he’s happy to string both girls along if it means he can stall off making a decision. Which is why Rachel comes off as such a desperate loser, who’s happy to settle for a man with no spine. The only character who does have a backbone, but is quickly disposed off is Ethan (John Krasinski), a close friend of Rachel who warns her that Dex is all wrong for her.

There is very little chemistry between Egglesfield and the girls (both of them), as a result of which you really couldn’t care who gets to keep him after all. Despite itself, the film raises difficult questions about marriage and friendship, but the air-headed treatment seems to dismiss them with the suggestion that it all turns out okay in the end.

More infuriating than engaging, this wretched film leaves you feeling murderous towards its makers. I’m going with one out of five for Something Borrowed. It’s a dumb film for dumb people. Avoid it.
