Something Borrowed

post signature
The relationship between two best friends is compromised when Rachel, the conservative one (Ginnifer Goodwin), sleeps with Darcy, the flamboyant one’s (Kate Hudson) fiancĂ©. Complicating the situation is the history Rachel has with the fiancĂ©, a man she had a crush on before Darcy entered the picture. Rachel is plagued by mixed feelings: guilt at having betrayed her lifelong friend, and regret at possibly losing the love of her life.

ClearPlay In Action!

The story hinges on a morally questionable situation that might not appeal to many ClearPlay viewers. ClearPlay trims a few scenes of implied intercourse, partial nudity, and 60 or so instances of language, and other suggestive language and allusions. Even with most offensive scenes gone, Something Borrowed is still probably too compromising for younger audiences.

Is Something Borrowed new, old or just blue?…

The characters are well–drawn in Something Borrowed, and the actors are believable, even if the plot strains credibility. John Krasinski is particularly good as a third–wheel buddy who adds perspective to all the events. And though the movie skitters across lofty ideas like loyalty and self–image, it feels unseemly along the way.
