After watching Ginnifer Goodwin in “He’s Just Not That Into You”, I thought she was going to become very popular. She was cute, very likeable and funny. I didn’t really feel teh same aspect when watching this film. This film was a little two by the book romantic comedy. It didn’t really have any edge. I am opened minded to some romantic comedies, but it has to have something different and not follow the typical formula. Kate Hudson is funny, as well is John Krasinski. It is a shame he hasn’t he it big yet as a starring lead. Overall certain women might consider this film “cute”, in the word of my mother. But I will send in my RSVP regretfully declining.
The Blu-ray disc is packed with extras including: “Something…Old?”, which has the stars of the film chatting about turning 30. The author of the book, Emily Giffin takes us behind the scenes “On Location Tours”. Steve Howey offers women pointers on the extra “Marcus’s Guide to the Ladies”. “What is “Something Borrowed”?” has the cast of the film discussing marriage and the meaning of the wedding. The gag reel is always funny even if you did not like the film. Lastly there is additional scenes called “Left Off the Guest List”, they are good but glad they got cut the film is already about two hours.
