Two-time Oscar® winner Hilary Swank produces this romantic comedy starring Big Love's Ginnifer Goodwin as a talented New York attorney and a loyal friend, who's, unhappily, still single... as her engaged best friend Darcy (Oscar® nominee Kate Hudson) is constantly reminding her. But after one drink too many at her 30th birthday party, perpetual good girl Rachel (Goodwin) unexpectedly ends up in bed with the guy she's had a crush on since law school (Melrose Place's Colin Egglesfield)...who just happens to be Darcy's fiancé. When Rachel and Darcy's lifelong friendship collides with true love, it leads to unexpected complications and potentially explosive romantic revelations. Based on the bestselling novel by Emily Giffin, the film also stars The Office's John Krasinski as Rachel's confidante and sometimes conscience who harbors a secret crush of his own. Romance can often be more complicated than it looks, but there's a thin line between love and friendship!
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: In spite of solid performances from Kate Hudson and John Krasinski, Something Borrowed is an unpleasant misfire that lives down to its title.

Common Sense Says
Soap-operaish romcom is full of mature twists, betrayals.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this romantic comedy based on a popular novel has melodramatic twists that turn into a series of lies and betrayals that are portrayed as humorous. There's especially strong language for a romcom (one "f--k" and many uses of the words "s--t," "a--hole," and more) and a lot of scenes that take place while characters get sloshed at bars. Love scenes include kissing and loud sex noises, but nothing graphic is shown. Some of the movie's messages about love and friendship are pretty iffy, and the characters are sometimes unlikeable ... but in the end, as with all romcoms, everyone winds up with "the one."
