Reel Short Takes: “Something Borrowed”

A Man and a Woman

I could not get into Bridesmaids this weekend so we opted to see Something Borrowed that opened last week and was really popular then and now.  It is a real romance and not a fake one like Jumping the Broom AKA running out of the room.

It was based on a novel by the same name and the characters romanced each other, what’s so novel about that when it’s a romance? It seems that no one is doing the romance thing but either jumping around in the sack or just running for the altar two minutes into the film.

Don’t expect A Man and a Woman from the French or The Unbearable Lightness of Being, no it’s not all that, however, for an American film it is bearable and romantic. 

See it.  I give it 3-1/2 stars out of 5.
