It’s a thin line between love and friendship.
By far, ‘Something Borrowed’ is not an Oscar worthy masterpiece. But as far as chick flicks are concerned, this one was very enjoyable. Unlike many movies I’ve seen with a similar storyline, this one focuses not only on the present but also on the past. In fact, if you’re able to see past the shallow plot, you’ll find that there are some actual thought provoking ideas behind ‘Something Borrowed’. The movie deals with choosing between what’s morally right and what’s right for one’s happiness. Various characters seem to dwell on the past, and it therefore also addresses people’s inability to forgive themselves for past mistakes. Personally, I could really relate to some the issues the character’s faced, such as Ginnifer Goodwin’s regret over making the wrong choices which therefore altered her life. The movie often veers from being a typical Chick Flick to a Drama, and some scenes brought a little tear to my eye. The acting was excellent, the actors performances very convincing, and some scenes (such as flashbacks) were very well directed. Admittedly, there was some back and forth within the story, and some scenes were added purely for reaction- but overall, this, to me, was a great flick for a rainy Saturday afternoon.
