We’re getting close to this summer’s wedding, rom-com (there’s got to be at least one right?) with the champ of this genre Kate Hudson (this will be her 9th rom-com, many of which have marriage in there somewhere) Something Borrowed. This time she will be playing the bride-zilla, and the little cutie that everyone loves Ginnifer Goodwin playing the bride that should be. Colin Egglesfieldis plays the must-have bachelor and Steve Howey (returning from Bride Wars with Hudson) and John Krasinski are there to add some easy to watch comedic and dramatic support. Are you excited? Check out the first trailer for the film now…
The film is based on the novel “Something Borrowed” by Emily Giffin and adapted by Jennie Urman (writer of Lipstick Wars, the new 90201, Gilmore Girls) and according to WB but not IMDB, Jordan Roberts (March of the Penguins documentary). Leading the way is director Luke Greenfield (The Animal and The Girl Next Door) who seems to be the go-to guy from cheesy comedy.
I for one can’t wait to watch this on an airplane with a glass of something that burns in hand as I doze off. How about you?
Official Synopsis (In case you couldn’t see/guess before):
Rachel (Ginnifer Goodwin) is a talented attorney at a top New York law firm, a generous and loyal friend and, unhappily, still single…as her engaged best friend Darcy (Kate Hudson) is constantly reminding her. But after one drink too many at her 30th birthday party, perpetual good girl Rachel unexpectedly ends up in bed with the guy she’s had a crush on since law school, Dex (Colin Egglesfield), who just happens to be Darcy’s fiancé. When Rachel and Darcy’s lifelong friendship collides with true love, it leads to unexpected complications and potentially explosive romantic revelations. Meanwhile, Ethan (John Krasinski), who has been Rachel’s constant confidante and sometimes conscience, has been harboring a secret of his own, and Marcus (Steve Howey), an irrepressible womanizer, can’t keep his mind out of the gutter or his hands off any girl within reach.
The film hits theaters on May 6, 2011.
