Yes it's a rom com, but it's better than your average rom com. I really liked this one
Really liked the cast of this movie and it was pretty much exactly what I thought it would be. Very predictable but an overall pleasant movie.
a good laugh, great actresses and a storyline that is a possibility in real life.
A true chick flick--Gennifer Goodwin & Kate Hudson were great
A fun movie about two close girl friends being separated by a man they both love. Happy ending for one of them.
This was a good one for the ladies loved it.
This movie was ok. I felt it Rachel was a bit of a doormat and that she really didn't stand up for what she wanted. She seemed to just let her friend Darcy do whatever she wanted. Didn't like Darcy much but I'm guessing you're not really supposed to. Typically for a rom com everything sort of works out in the end. Not bad but not great. And as another member said "Where was her handbag?"...Good question. What woman goes out without one? Not me.
The movie was ok. If you enjoy romcoms you will enjoy this.
Ginnifer is a standout. I felt Dex was a bit lifeless and didn't feel any chemistry with Rachel or Darcy (his fiancee). When he kisses Rachel you expect it to be explosive, instead it's kinda lukewarm. Darcy started by being a seemingly wonderful friend who organises this wonderful party. However, as the movie progresses she seems to lose IQ points by the minute and by the end is an imbecile.
A side note. I couldn't understand how Rachel didn't have a handbag for 80% of the movie. How do you pay for lunch, drinks or even get back into your apartment without your keys.
I enjoyed this because I'm a fan of Ginnifer Goodwin but the plot is average and at times a bit squirmy due to the triangulation of the cast.
Fairly true to the book but missing the comedic elements. Watchable but not memorable.
If you think you have seen the WORST MOVIE EVER, then you haven't seen this one yet! Acting & script were atrocious and I hated all the characters because they were all so unlikeable......it could have been so much better, what a waste of time and money making this rubbish.
Easy to watch chick flick. Loved Ginnifer Goodwin.
Entertaining fluff. Higher quality than other fluff. Interesting that the cast look like young "versions" of Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes and Goldie Hawn (that one isn't so surprising, but she's still playing the same roles her mother played). Déjà vu.
Easy to watch seeing it was raining outside.. Bit of the same, boy meets girl but loves another sort of story but not that funny in parts.
I thought it was a strange cast to put together for this movie but it worked really well and I enjoyed the movie.
Good movie for women more so than men.
A nice easy watching movie.
What a delightful never-heard movie! Thoroughly enjoyable despite wooden acting by the male lead.
Long winded and sloooooooooow in getting to the point, or lack thereof!
Lame and unbelievable...even for a chick flick!
I have found lately that all Kate Hudson's movies have the depth of a dry puddle. A shame really as her mother is so talented
Passable rom-com, but yet another example of the modern trend to have a reactive & just a little desperate heroine. Her best buddy advice-giver & truth-teller SHOULD be the love interest, but...
An entertaining chick flick
If you love Rom Coms will love this one, very entertaining, funny, adn sweet! And of course, happy ending for everyone!
More depth than your average Chick flick.
I don't even remember seeing this dvd . Obviously didn't make an impression!!
As far as Rom/Coms go, this one is way above par. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing, with John Krasinski as Ethan having the best lines by far (just a shame he wasn't featured in it more). Only thing that annoyed me was I felt I was watching Tom Cruise (& not Colin Egglesfield), from about 10-15 years ago. Talk about being separated at birth!! Anyway, that aside, this was a very enjoyable movie, & would recommend highly.
I truly enjoy this movie. Very entertaining. All the characters perpect on each roles. I would watch this again.
I found this film quite enjoyable. Bit lame and slow in places but overall it was fun, nice film.
Worst movie ever.... I cant believe I lost 2 hours of my life
Not very funny. Started out lame and got slightly better. The guy with the comedic role was unfunny. Better in this genre. Additional footage in the credits bizarre implies a sequel??
This film had a twist that no-one could pick, thoroughly enjoyed it.
Loved it..would watch again. All the right ingredients for a romantic comedy.
Good chic flick it makes you think to live your life for you.
I did not like this move. The actors were unbelievable and Kate Hudson was the worst. It is unthinkable that she could be the friend of anyone the way she was portrayed in this movie. The best friend of Rachel, Ethan is just laid aside and ignored by her. What kind of people are these? Selfish, stupid, ridiculous. I hope they don't exist in reality.
I quite enjoyed the movie, althought the characters were very unlikeable.
Just an average commedy, but enjoyable.
Very good movie, glad the people got who they wanted
Cut...romantic girly movie
Good chick flick. You might even get hubbie to watch.
wife liked it good romance comedy , i fell asleep in it definatly a chick flick
Very slow moving. Plot a little laboured.
not really that great. just another guy falls in love with another woman. found it quite boring
Absoulelty loved this movies Colin Egglesfield plays great part. Love it could watch it over and over...
Good girly movie, really enjoyed it!
yuck! this movie basically shows you its ok to sleep with your best friends fiancee but dont feel bad coz hes the love of your life.did i say yuck already?
This is some kind of romantic/comedy drama built around a group of not very likeable characters, by the end of the film I didn't want any of them to happy. The material it covered was actually interesting and not so common in the genre, however turning the characters into caricatures made for a particularly unimpressive film.
Didn't watch it all. Not my kind of Movie.
This was a great chick flick and an interesting ending that got me thinking a bit more. It was entertaining and the acting waspretty good too.
Funnier than I expected, really enjoyed it just really hated Kate Hudsons character but I dont think you were suppose to like her
Not your typical chick flick... because usually I love those for a bit of escapism!
The storyline is based around two best friends and one fiance... the film slams you with the "girl sleeping with her best friend's fiance" very early in the piece and then tries to explain away why this is "ok" based on flash backs of the characters. Perhaps if they had done it the other way around and we'd built a relationship with the characters from the start, as an audience we might have accepted the betrayal, but honestly, I just found it ridiculous - could not sympathise with the "romance" in this at all.
Pretty disappointed - loved John Kranski though, he was great and if anything stopped me from turning the film off it was him, he has some funny moments and is genuinely likeable. The only likeable character really!
Enjoyed this one a lot. Very funny in parts and not typically predictable.
mmm...sleeping with your best friends fiance...a fiance who is no knight in shining armour...definitely no great prize to fight for. Give me a romantic lead with spunk please. Story line sucked. Movie salvaged by good acting from too likeable characters Ginnifer and the man she didn't take. This movie was OK, but if you've planning to sit through it with your husband or partner don't. They'll puke. Watch it when you've run out of everything else.
A fairly typical, lack lustre chick flick....I too couldnt help finding myself wondering if I was watching Bride Wars again :) I did like the twist at the end.
A chic flick which reminded me a lot of Kate Hudson in Bride Wars. It was good to
see the writers steer away from the usual happy & predictable endings that most
chic flicks from Hollywood go with. An easy movie to watch with your friends.
Not as good a movie as I expected it to be a little disappointed with it
good movie enjoyed it heaps
A "been there done that movie (a storyline done before)". It was hyped up to be a good movie but I found it a bit depressing although it had a touch of realism to it and a dilemma that I'm sure people have experienced in one form or another. I found the movie predictable.
The worst movie in a long time, all the characters are completely unlikable
Loved it and very entertaining
wow... and not in a good way. A very sadistic 110 minutes. Watching selfish people deal with their inner demons is not how I want to spend a night in front of the TV. A very negative outlook on friendship and life itself. From what people deserve to what people think they deserve and what they're willing to do and destroy to make other people miserable.
Predictable romantic comedy, but still an enjoyable film. Quite funny in places.
The borrowed item is the fiance of her best friend. I didn't really like the idea of that. The movie was well done... the story line was just wrong in my opinion.
This movie perfectly personifies why blokes don't like chick flicks. Don't let her make you watch it. Run my brothers, run!
Kate Hudson is obnoxious and looks ten years older than the other characters who she is supposed to be the same age as.
I really enjoyed this movie it was a Chick flick Movie with laugh's.
feel good, yet emotional girlie movie. a reminicscent of typical relationships in real life. a story of a love triangle that tests friendships and to follow your heart. a nice story that tests your beliefs on 'true love'. And goodness me, Kate Hudson plays the narcissitic roles well! I enjoyed this movie but it did bring a tear to my ear towards the end! awesome chick flick!
No honour amongst friends. I would not be interested in somebody so weak even if he was really good looking. Very much like My Best Friends Wedding with Julia Roberts, Cameron Diaz, Rupert Everett and that other weak leading man. I always though Rupert Everett would have been the better choice even if he was gay
Absolutely loved it, will most likely buy it as wouldn't mind watching again
This movie is a most enjoyable romantic comedy with Kate Hudson at her
best . The story line was quite good and with Ginnifer Goodwin as Kate's best
friend they combined well together. Good acting all round and well directed.
A pleasand viewing experience.
Kate Hudson is really annoying, but Ginnifer Goodwin was great! Typical Rom Com bur overall I enjoyed it
OK movie, more on the "Romance" side than comedy though, which is fine if you're into the romantic without the comedy. Still worth the watch.
This was a great romantic comedy. As I thought the ending was going to be predictable, I was pleasantly surprised with all the revelations at the end. Can't wait for the sequel!
Great movie with a few funny moments:)
Enjoyed this film but found it a bit slow at times. Also not as funny as I expected but still loved the characters and a good watch.
Thoroughly enjoyed this film. Ginnifer Goodwin is fabulous. Perfect Friday night on the couch movie!
Real enjoyed this great movie, brilliant cast and enjoyable storyline. Nothing unique in the story but the way it was put together and the characters portrayed made it an easy, pleasant with lots of funny moments and tear jerkers. For the lovers of good comedy romances this is definately a winner.
Awesome Movie. I really enjoyed watching it, the film was full of laughs as well as tears. Although I do agree it was a little predictable I also think it was a good movie.
Great film! Funny, hot looking cast. Jennifer was great! Story was a lil predictable, but well written. Waiting to own the dvd.
