Philadelphia Inquirer

By Carrie Rickey
To paraphrase one of its few laughs, it's a zombie movie directed by Vera Wang.

Chicago Sun-Times

By Roger Ebert
All of the characters are treated sincerely and played in a straightforward style. It's just that we don't love them enough.

As horrific as Something Borrowed is, it's compelling in its own sick way.

Even if you've got a soft spot for silly rom-coms, know that this one is as empty-headed as it gets.

Love the Book Love The Movie

As a huge Emily Giffin fan I was naturally excited to see Something Borrowed. As with most movies based on books certain adjustments have to be made to fit everything into the limited time window. I...

My daughter and I LOVED this movie!

A not so good rom-com...

By getacloo
Script is completely predictable but also painful. The acting is okay but suffers from terrible writing. Not a movie I'd recommend to anybody....
