Something Borrowed

After months of anticipation, I saw Something Borrowed this past weekend. I wanted to love it, but sadly, it was extremely disappointing. My best friend and I were cringing throughout the movie. Emily Giffin somehow manages to make you root for Dex and Rachel in the book, but I found myself rooting for a different ending. John Krasinski was by far the best part of the film (he sort of makes me want to watch The Office). Kate Hudson also impressed me as Darcy. All in all, it was a bummer to see one of my favorite book couples have zero chemistry on screen. Did you see it this weekend? Thoughts?

ps. if you want to see a good book to movie adaptation go see Water for Elephants. Amazing.

I agree, however, Dex was gorge and as a MI blogger it was cool to see he was from Dearborn. I also saw Water for Elephants and it was amazing.

Oh no! I really wanted to see this one. I haven't read the book, but maybe I'll just do that and skip the movie.

Bummer! I loved the book, I was kind of disappointed with the guy they chose for Dex.

I like Kate and John, but the preview just didn't look good. Maybe I'll read the book!
