Rachel is a lawyer. When she was in law school she fell for another student, Dex, who comes from an affluent family, but she was too shy to say anything. When Dex meets her best friend Darcy, who sometimes treats her like dirt, Darcy makes a move on Dex and gets him. Eventually, they get engaged and Darcy asks Rachel to be her Maid of Honor. However, Rachel still has feelings for Dex and still can't say anything. Darcy throws her a birthday party and Dex is there. When she and Dex are alone she blurts out that she had a thing for him in college which surprised him, and after drinking a little they spend the night together. They try to forget the whole thing and agree that it means nothing. Ethan, Rachel's close friend, tells her that she'll spend her entire life regretting that if she does nothing.Written by

Near the end, Darcy goes to Rachel's apartment. She has nothing with her. When we see her storm outside the building, she grabs Marcus' pizza wrapper and walks away. Then the shot switches to her from the back and she has a brown purse, no wrapper. The purse was sitting beside Marcus on the stoop but we don't see her pick it up. See more »
Oh my God. So when are you gonna tell him? Do you want me to tell him? I would love to tell him.
It's none of your business. I told Darcy to marry him. I'm bowing out.
Rachel, she just told you she's cheating. You want your opportunity, take it.

I've been able to watch a test screening of the movie in early February during the Berlin Film Festival in Berlin, Germany.
I've been a big fan of the book(s), so I was really looking forward to how they adapted "Something Borrowed". First of all, the actors were great. I didn't expect it at first, but Ginnifer and Colin were just perfect as Rachel and Dex. They did such an amazing job and I was sitting in the cinema with a pounding heart the whole time. Kate and John were hilarious, but I didn't expect any less and just because of those two, I really hope they'll adapt "Something Blue" (the sequel to "Something Borrowed") as well.
I've read the book a couple of years ago, so I don't remember every detail of it, but I don't think they left any major facts out. It's a great chick-flick. I'm not sure if guys will enjoy it much, but it's a great movie to watch with your girlfriends/mother/sisters, etc.
