Rated: PG-13
Story: Rachel is a talented attorney at a top New York law firm, a generous and loyal friend and, unhappily, still her engaged best friend Darcy is constantly reminding her. But after one drink too many at her 30th birthday party, perpetual good girl Rachel unexpectedly ends up in bed with the guy she's had a crush on since law school, Dex, who just happens to be Darcy's fiancé. When Rachel and Darcy's lifelong friendship collides with true love, it leads to unexpected complications and potentially explosive romantic revelations. Meanwhile, Ethan, who has been Rachel's constant confidante and sometimes conscience, has been harboring a secret of his own, and Marcus, an irrepressible womanizer, can't keep his mind out of the gutter or his hands off any girl within reach. (Warner Bros. Pictures)

Bottom Line: SOMETHING BORROWED?! More like SOMETHING STOLEN…like your valuable time if you pay to see this routine, uninteresting, formulaic, melodramatic and predictable chick-flick wedding retread that, admittedly, has a couple of winning performances to keep it from completely drowning. I thought when Hollywood makes movies like this we’re supposed to shove their nose it and smack ‘em on the rear with a rolled up newspaper…you know, so they never do it again.
