Something Borrowed *Movie Review*

 Movie Synopsis:

Rachel (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Dex (Colin Egglesfield) met in Law school and quickly became good friends-The geeky girl with too many pens, and the all American guy who happened to sit next to her.

Fast forward through Law school to a bar, where Dex asked Rachel to dinner after a grueling final exam.They obviously have feelings for one another, but Rachel doesn't think a guy like Dex would want her!

It all has the makings for a date night, but then enters Darcy (Kate Hudson), Rachel's best friend-A very opinionated popular girl type who takes what she wants, when she wants it, who crashes the two's dinner, and who meets Dex for the first time.

Her future fiance.

Fast forward again to the present. Rachel's surprise birthday party, where not only did she turn the big 3-0, but where her whole life did a complete 180. Due to certain events, now she KNOWS Dex had feelings for her back then, and he most definitely has feelings for her now. But with him getting married to her best friend, what is she to do!?

At least she has her quarky and oh-so-adorable guy best friend, Ethan (John Krasinski), to talk to!

 My Thoughts:

This looked like such an amazing movie from the trailers that I've been DYING to see it ever since it came out!

I had a chance to watch it the other day, and I must say, did not meet the high expectations I placed on it the moment I saw that trailer.

The actors were pretty great {especially that yummy John Krasinski ;) }, and the story was somewhat enjoyable, but other then that, it mostly annoyed me. Why you ask? Well, it annoyed me because of several things:

1.) It's SO predictable.
2.)Even though the story was somewhat enjoyable, it's still a bit boring and drags.
3.) I HATE the way the main character is portrayed as a clueless girl {he's going to leave her. He loves me. He's going to leave her. Blah, blah, blah}.

The only thing that had me cheering was John's character, Ethan. He told it like it was, funny sometimes, sweet other times, and harsh when needed. I found myself cheering HIM on through the whole movie! Lol

All in all, in my opinion, it's good for a watch, but nothing more.
