NOT THAT DRUNK

SOMETHING BORROWED (2011)
– 2 and a half out of 5 stars

Based on the novel by Emily Griffin, the story tests the boundaries of love and friendship when Rachel (Ginnifer Goodwin)spends the night with Dex (Colin Egglefield), her best friend Darcy’s (Kate Hudson) fiance. Thrown into the mix is Ethan (John Krasinski), Rachel and Darcy’s childhood friend who wants someone of his own.

Ethan: I can’t take this ‘Daddy beats me because he loves me’ excuse.

John Krasinski was hilarious in this movie! He’s got the best lines and jokes, and his facial expressions were the icing on the cake. Movie-wise, the crucial parts were more or less in the trailer so you’re mostly there to know the ending. I guess audiences are led to Team Rachel because it kinda describes Darcy as a friend-zilla. But you’ll never know because there’s a sequel to this story (Something Blue) that is written in Darcy’s point of view. Colin Egglesfield is easy on the eyes but he doesn’t seem to joke much, or at all. So yeah, I’m for John Krasinski!

STAY FOR AN EXTRA SCENE DURING THE CREDITS!

RULE VS. EXCEPTION

HE’S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU (2009)

CHICK FLICK!

It’s something like a chick flick but not quite. Guess you have to check out its websiteand click on the ‘Top 10 Chick Flick Cliches Not Found In The Movie’ – it’s absolutely hilarious! Basically it’s about the interconnected lives of these people who meets/met/want to meet their love and are decoding the signs that the opposite sex gives. I really love the scene where Neil (Ben Affleck) appears in Beth’s (Jennifer Aniston) dad’s home to help her with the housework after their breakup since Neil didn’t want to marry her after seven years together. It was so touching! The other guys in the house were really useless TV bums. Lucky for Neil and Beth, their ending was nice!
