A Romantic Comedy where friendships and relationships are tested to the limits when single friend Rachel finds she has fallen, and has always liked, her best friends fiance; Dex.

Rachel is a successful attorney as-well as a loyal friend but is still single. After arriving to a surprise 30th birthday celebration, Rachel has one too many drinks and ends up in bed with her longtime crusg, Dex, who is engaged to be married to Rachel’s best friend Darcy (Kate Hudson).

After this, they both find they have romantic feelings for one another and as things start to become serious between the both of them, Dex and Rachel, they find their secret could destroy the friendship bonds, whilst Ethan (John Krasinski) who is Rachel’s close friend and has kept the secret affair of Rachel and Dex to himself, he admits a secret of his own, to Rachel, when she visits him in London!

Kindly turning him down, she returns to New York for Darcy’s wedding to find Dex sat on the steps outside her apartment, and learns her has called off the wedding too. The happiness is short lived between the pair when Darcy shows up to admit she has been cheating on Dex, and is pregnant, but soon finds Rachel is the third person involved when Darcy finds her ex-fiance’s jacket and confronts the pair before leaving.

The ending of the film shows Rachel bumping into Darcy after visiting the dry-cleaners with one of Dex’s shirts. Beaming with excitement, Darcy admits she is the happiest she has ever been when she realises Rachel is still with Dex.

The mid-credit scene shows Darcy in London to surprise Ethan (Krasinski) but he tries to ignore her by walking away, and then the scene turns black indicating that there would be a second film to this, which has not happened yet, and it is 10 years since this film was first released…

Upon watching this, I thought at first it would be a cheesy chic-flick, which to some assumption it seems to be, but its actually a good film to watch! If you are a fan of Kate Hudson, and, like me, a fan of John Krasinski, then this film is recommended!

Some of the scenes made me cry with laughter, and I surprisingly enjoyed it a lot! The only thing I do not like, is there is not a second film, when I think the second book Something Blue should be created into a second film, as I have noticed there is demand for it online..

Highly recommend watching Something Borrowed if you want a nice easy, chilled, film to watch, when you want to relax, very funny too, definitely made my evening, plus John Krasinski looks super cute, and handsome, as always, in this film!.
