'Something Borrowed' is not your typical rom-com

The new movie "Something Borrowed" is one of those films that is hard to categorize: it's part comedy, part romance and plenty of drama.

The film, based on a best-selling novel, revolves around two lifelong best friends, Darcy (played by Kate Hudson) and Rachel (played by Ginnifer Goodwin), who end up falling for the same guy, Dex (played by Colin Egglesfield).

The film's stars think moviegoers will be familiar with the basic story of how messy our love lives can sometimes get.

"This is a movie that tackles serious issues that I think a lot of people are going to be able to identify with and hopefully gain some insight from," said Egglesfield.

The film may have moviegoers questioning what's right and wrong when it comes to following the heart.

"For me, it kind of felt like just because you have these moments in your life that really put your morality in question, does it mean you're a bad person?" she questioned. "I think that's what I liked about it. It's just sort of ... everybody's just searching for love and searching for companionship in their life."

Both Hudson and Egglesfield think the film will raise some questions and maybe even get couples to talk about the state of their relationships.

"I think ultimately it's a good thing because I feel like sometimes you get in relationships for the wrong reasons or you just kind of slide into it, you maybe start sleeping with each other before you really know who someone is. And then, it's like, you wake up one day and you realize, OK I've been with this person for a while now and I don't even really who they are," said Egglesfield.

"Something Borrowed" is rated PG-13 and is in theaters this weekend.
