Something Borrowed: A Montonous Chore of a Love Story
By: Da'Mon Guy
Something Borrowed is a drawn out, tedious fiasco that focuses on missed opportunities and harsh choices. It’s a monotonous chore of a romantic comedy which follows the story of two life-long friends with completely contrasting personalities who share a mutual love for the same man. The movie stars Ginnifer Goodwin (He’s Just Not That Into You), Kate Hudson (Bride Wars), Colin Egglesfield (Must Love Dogs), John Krasinski (It‘s Complicated), Steve Howey (Stan Helsing), and Ashley Williams (Margin Call).
Something Borrowed is mind-numbing, dreary exhibition of the tough, difficult choices that one must often make for love. The film is based on the best selling book Something Borrowed by Emily Griffin. The movie has a number of picture perfect moments that highlight the tiresome love story. The film easily entrances the audience and feels just like a fairy tale. It is a love story that is told through multiple flashbacks, subtle nuances, and small gestures that are utilized to whisk the audience through Rachel’s passionate but laid back love interest for Dexter.
