50
All of the characters are treated sincerely and played in a straightforward style. It's just that we don't love them enough.
50
Goodwin radiates probity and makes waiting almost look interesting, and so, for all the movie's awkwardness, it remains watchable.
50
To paraphrase one of its few laughs, it's a zombie movie directed by Vera Wang.
50
Something Borrowed commits the most fatal mistake of all: Its characters are so deeply uninteresting that the audience can't get invested in their eventual happiness.
50
It's a testament to Goodwin's skill as an actress that we almost buy this.
45
As horrific as Something Borrowed is, it's compelling in its own sick way.
40
Doesn't so much borrow from other movies as settle into a comfort zone of raising provocative questions regarding love, commitment and marriage only to dismiss them with a brush of a hand as so much dandruff.
38
Bonds are tested and feelings hurt, but who really cares? The story takes predictable turns, embraces clichés and dodges all humor.
33
Soul-sucking romantic comedy.
20
Even if you've got a soft spot for silly rom-coms, know that this one is as empty-headed as it gets.
12
The half-star rating goes to John Krasinski for heroically rising above this vile dung heap of a movie.
