Something Borrowed

I find it funny when movie critics try to review Romantic Comedies and Chick Flicks. 9 times out of 10 it's always a bad review or 2 and a half stars. There's a reason a movie is classified as a Chick Flick and a Rom Com and ain't because they are trying to win an Oscar.... it's because of the fact that it's light hearted, cheesy and EXACTLY what a movie like that SHOULD be. If you go to the movie expecting it to be anything more then that then you are sure to be disappointed. But if you go expecting it to be exactly what it should be then you will 9 times out of 10 enjoy it!!

I never judge a Chick Flick. I sit back, relax, and enjoy. These movies aren't meant to be judged. They are not meant to be award winning or Oscar worthy.

I went and saw Something Borrowed last night with my best friend. The other day I saw a write up in the paper tearing the movie apart and giving it 2 and a half stars. Throughout the movie I heard the girls in the row behind me moaning and groaning about how cheesy it was.

Well, I am here to say I LOVED it! I laughed a bunch of times, there was love, emotion, silliness and fun and that's ALL I require from a romantic comedy.

John Krasinskis sarcasm never ceases to crack me up. His story line was hilarious.

Loved the synchronized dance routine the girls performed. Brought back memories of me and my girls.

The lead male role played by Colin Egglesfield bears a striking resemblance to a young Tom Cruise (not sure if that was a good thing or a bad thing) but regardless I enjoyed the character.

Steve Howey from Shameless (one of THE best shows on TV) was one of the best characters. Too funny! Everytime he was on screen I was laughing.

Seen this movie yet? I'd love to hear what you thought!
