Category Archives: Something Borrowed
>This weekend I went to see “Something Borrowed.” I was really excited about it because it looked cute and had John Krasinski and Kate Hudson in it. I generally like the comedy they do, so I figured I couldn’t go wrong. To a certain extent, I was correct. It was funny. It had it’s moments. Krasinski was 100%. Hudson understood her role and there couldn’t have been a better choice for her part.
I was totally sold with the leading man, Dex, until there was a scene where Rachel and Dex are facing each other. Dex reaches over to move a piece of Rachel’s hair, but instead of touching her face it seems like he does everything possible to only touch her hair. He practically had his pinky up. A man in love wants to touch his lover’s face. It’s intimate. It boggles the mind that such a big mistake could be made. (Also, he has weird hands.)
In addition, Dex is a total yes man. He’s afraid of his father at 30 years old. He was too afraid to be with Rachel when he had the chance (twice) and then I’m supposed to buy that she should be with him? No way. He’s a total chump. The only reason he was with Darcy in the first place was because she basically told him they were going to be together and he was too much of chump to set her straight.
The bottom line is that I liked the movie. I laughed out loud often. The ending really wasn’t what it should have been. I thought I was the only one, but as I exited the theater I heard the other patrons saying the same thing.
