Something Borrowed, Someone Blue

Behind the clean cut images and the party like atmosphere, the new romantic film Something Borrowed is actually a morality tale told by (for?) a group of 30 somethings that are rewriting the dating and marriage rules.

Confusion reigns as Rachel (Ginnifer Goodwin) longs for Dex (Colin Egglesfield), the fiance of long time best gal pal Darcy (Kate Hudson). In the first few minutes, Rachel finally does have sex with him only to more spoilers here.

Let's just say the film is interesting and mostly holds the attention of the audience. With enough twists and turns, no one is exactly what they seem or really very happy. Seems no one grows up from the experience, with the self-focused and shallow Darcy remaining exactly that. Kate Hudson plays her to perfect myopic effect.

Go see it just to watch The Office's John Krasinski- he's warped, too, but at least he knows it.
