  • Pete Hammond

    The film is terrific: smart, sexy and funny.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    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.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    It's a testament to Goodwin's skill as an actress that we almost buy this.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Jody Mitori

    Doesn't break any new ground, but it is a decent way to spend a girls' night out.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Goodwin radiates probity and makes waiting almost look interesting, and so, for all the movie's awkwardness, it remains watchable.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

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

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Overlong and at times tedious; the taste is gritty and lingers unpleasantly.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    A genial cast and moderately funny script prevail over the sort of sappy music cues and white-bread settings that have become the grating norm in Hollywood rom-coms.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • 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.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    Fairly uninspiring, but it still manages to ingratiate itself, largely through the efforts of Krasinski in a secondary part.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Nick Pinkerton

    It's clear that Something Borrowed finds it easier to tell us about relationships than to show us them under way.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    If you have already begun to suspect that Something Borrowed may be something less than the sum of its parts-all of which do indeed seem borrowed from other movies and TV rom-coms too numerous to mention-you are right.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

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

    Movieline Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Yes, perhaps the audience will like its favored couple more, but all the engineering that goes into making them sympathetic results in a film that feels agonizingly synthetic and alien.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    Despite the pretty overload and the smoldering blue-eyed handsome of Egglesfield, the heart-pounding, palm-sweating, heavy-breathing chemical reactions that should be causing major blackouts in Manhattan, where this story unfolds, are nowhere to be found.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    The most dispiriting thing about Something Borrowed is that with a little more art, craft and wit it could have been a lot better, maybe even good.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Kerry Lengel

    Will anyone really believe in this GQ-perfect big man on campus who lacks the courage to ask her out on a date?

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Sam Adams

    This rom-com certainly has something old, something borrowed and something blue-the something new, however, is MIA.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    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.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    Try as she might, Hudson can't turn Darcy into a three-dimensional character: She's astonishingly easy to dislike, but not nearly amusing enough in what could have been an unforgettable camp performance.

    Variety Full Review
  • Stephanie Merry

    Something Borrowed clinches it: It is not okay to sleep with the fiance of one's best friend. What's odd, and ultimately icky, is how enthusiastically the film attempts to justify doing so.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    It is fluffy, yes, but it also is ugly and annoying and something you neither want nor need.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Bonds are tested and feelings hurt, but who really cares? The story takes predictable turns, embraces clichés and dodges all humor.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    I don't know whether she's (Hudson) drunk, stoned, or simply out of her mind, but if it weren't so sad watching her pick away at this skimpy, overlong romantic lie, she might be entertaining.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Thank heavens Krasinski, at least, had the screenwriter's ear. He makes every one-liner land. "The Hamptons are like a zombie movie directed by Ralph Lauren."

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    Soul-sucking romantic comedy.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Kate Taylor

    The sisterhood is already grumbling about a movie that suggests women will happily choose a mate over friendship, but actually it's the stereotypes of good behaviour rather than bad that bring this rom com crashing down.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Something Borrowed is a romantic comedy in which absolutely no one deserves to end up happy.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

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

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    The half-star rating goes to John Krasinski for heroically rising above this vile dung heap of a movie.
