Friday Night Date Night

On Fridays I wanted to do something a little different then what I normally do.  I decided that on Fridays I'm going to do movie reviews.  I'm hoping to review mostly movies adapted from books, but I'm sure other movies that were not based on books will pop up every now and then.  Hopefully some of these reviews will help you decide what to watch on your date night or a night of chillin with the girls.
Something Borrowed (Darcy & Rachel, #1)
My bestie and I went to see Something Borrowed a couple of months ago.  I haven't read the books, but the movie looked cute so we decided what the hey, lets give it a try. 
I think we might be the only two people in the universe who didn't enjoy this movie.  Don't get me wrong, the acting was great.  Kate Hudson was amazing and spunky as always and Ginnifer Goodwin was as cute as a button.  Plus there was some nice eye candy..yep Colin Egglesfield was looking pretty darn good.  And who doesn't love John Krasinski?  I think he was my favorite person in the whole movie, or at least his character was.  If think he was a great best friend and I think his heart was in the right place.  All of the actors had great chemistry and would love to see them work together again.    
The main problem I had with this movie was not the movie itself; it was the storyline.  (For those of you who haven't seen the movie or read the book or seen the movie trailers this may be a little spoilerish, so skip the rest of this paragraph.)  I don't think it's right that we are cheering for the characters to cheat on their best friend or fiance.  I don't care how unworthy and catty your best friend is, that doesn't give you the right to sleep with her fiance.  And for Dex, I don't care if you think you might have feelings for your fiance's best friend you don't act on them.  I thought both Rachel and Dex were completely wrong in how they handled their feelings.  I also thought Dex needed to man up.  There was a point in the movie that no matter how cute I thought Colin was, his character really turned me off of him.  I though Darcy was selfish and not best friend material at all. In fact, I don't think I would like her character as a person at all.    
Ok enough ranting and raving.  Have you seen the movie or read the book?  What did you think?
Want to see more.  Check out the Trailer:


  1. Oh, that does sounds pretty bad. I mean if you have feelings for another person, please don't go cheat. That's BAD and seriously messed up. I don't think I can watch this movie without being annoyed by these characters. Probably just going to watch it when it's on the telly. Thank you for warning me, because this is so, not the movie I want to watch in the cinema.

  2. I thought this one was alright. Dex annoyed me to no end. You're so right! He needed to man up big time! Darcy annoyed me too! But otherwise it wasn't too bad. I just wouldn't see it again!

  3. Yeah, I have to agree. It's hard to support a romance for a couple of cheaters. You just can't justify that any way you look at it!

    P.S. Have I told you how much I love this feature! :)


I love love love hearing your wonderful thoughts! Thanks for stopping by and happy reading.
