Something Borrowed

Posted on May 8, 2011


I had high expectations for this, really. Ginnifer Goodwin plays Rachel, very good- girl Gidget-like, ..I swear she wears one dress that Sally Field wore in 1964 or maybe it was me, and Colin Egglefield as Dex looks all Tom Cruise-y with aviator shades and a pink shirt. Dex and Rachel had the hots for each other while in law school but didn’t do anything about it because they were too busy studying. That’s believable, right? Along comes Rachel’s bff Darcy (Kate Hudson) who is a fun, flirty, self-centered girl. Six years later, it’s two months before Dex and Darcy’s planned wedding when Rachel and Dex realize it should be their wedding.
You keep wanting Dex to man up during the beach party in The Hamptons or during the July 4th weekend in NYC, and on and on. Anyway, the story gets kind of long and drawn out. John Krasinski (The Office) is Rachel’s best male friend and there’s an unnecessary storyline of Marcus (Steve Howey) a self-absorbed lout who had one moment of redeeming compassion years ago – yawn. There is a cute little dance that bffs will enjoy.
It’s ends with a twist and a “to be continued” line.
