Something Borrowed: The Movie

Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin (one of my absolute fave books) is hitting the big screen on May 6th! Here is the summary from Yahoo! Movies:

"Rachel 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 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, who just happens to be Darcy's fiance. When Rachel and Darcy's lifelong friendship collides with true love, it leads to unexpected complications and potentially explosive romantic revelations. Meanwhile, Ethan, who has been Rachel's constant confidante and sometimes conscience, has been harboring a secret of his own, and Marcus, an irrepressible womanizer, can't keep his mind out of the gutter or his hands off any girl within reach."

99% of the time, books are better than the movie. However since Hilary Swank is one of the producers, I have very high hopes and expectations. Check back here in May for the movie review. In the meantime, enjoy the trailer and don't forget to read the book first.
