something borrowed

Rachel is a lawyer. When she was in law school she fell for another student Dex who comes from an affluent family. But she's too shy to say anything. When Dex meets her best friend Darcy who treats her like dirt sometimes, who was visiting her, she makes a move on him and gets him. Eventually they get engaged and Darcy asks Rachel to be her Maid of Honor. But Rachel stills has feelings for Dex and still can't say anything. But when Darcy throws her a birthday party and Dex is there. When she and gets Dex are alone, she blurts out that she had a thing for him in college which surprised him. And after drinking a little they spend the night together. They try to forget the whole thing but can't but agree that it means nothing. But Ethan, Rachel close friend tells her that she'll spend her entire life regretting that if she does nothing. Written by

This story wasn't the best romance i've ever watched but this movie surely inserted various value and things to be learned in relationship especially for mens. Many good things can be learned from Ethan and bad things to avoid from Dex. The story isn't one of teenage story because its complexity. But, I don't really like the idea of heading forward for the past which was done by Rachel and reflectly done by Dex in this movie. This story is romanticly and dramatically served but not so good in the end.

I'd like to frame my point in Dex figure. Dex is a gorgeous man but not so good in personality. I know it's very hard to choose between marrying Darcy and turning to Rachel. But, that didn't mean he can hang those two girls like in this movie. Mens have to decide. Girls don't like being hung by mens, right? Lessons we could learn from Dex' story is mens must have the courage to decide and ready to accept the consequences. Don't be greedy or you'll just fail yourself. Why would he take Darcy since the begining if he had a crush on Rachel. Err..nonsense.

The second thing that we should learn is "don't make too many assumptions". Dex and Rachel were making assumptions each other that end their 6 months relationship. They liked each other but assumed the opposite each other. Well, that was another lesson to learn from Dex. Mens probably should have the courage and initiative first.

On the other hand, Ethan was a perfect mate for Rachel though she doesn't wonder him at all. Ethan has a good personality that mens eventually should have. Ethan is my favorite character in this story. :)

Love may come emotionally but it has to flow both logically and emotionally.
