The Five-Year Engagement

Jason Segel and Emily Blunt are an engaged couple who can't quite make it to their wedding day in this romantic-comedy from the writer and director of Forgetting Sarah Marshall and producer Judd Apatow (Knocked UpBridesmaids).

Tom (Segel) proposed to Violet (Blunt) and they both couldn’t be happier. However, the nuptials are continually halted first by their friend's competing wedding dates, then Violet's career changes. As time goes on and pressure mounts from their respective Jewish/Christian parents, Tom and Violet drift apart and the big day threatens to never arrive.

A Wonderful And Funny Look At A Love Story

Director Nicholas Stoller and Jason Segel last teamed up on the laugh-a-minute "Forgetting Sarah Marshall", another real love story of sorts and now return with one more. "The Five-Year Engagement" tells the love story of Tom (Jason Segel) and Violet (Emily Blunt). As life goes on, it aids in pushing out their wedding, creating comedic moments along the...

Not the best

I am a bit on the fence about this movie. I really badly wanted to see this film as the trailer looked hilarious. It was full of laughs but the story line 3 quarters of the way through becomes exceptionally different than what you would think and it definitely effects the film in a negative way. I thought Emily Blunt and Jason Segal were great, but the...

Utter disappointment - reminiscent of 'Funny People' and is anti-equal rights with women.

Remember the movie 'Funny People'? The all star comedic cast movie with Adam Sandler as the protagonist? Remember how un-funny it was? How sh*t got real, fast, and you were left there in the cinema thinking "WTF?!?" Yeah, that is exactly what this movie is. NOT THAT FUNNY. Sure I laughed out loud a few times, but the plot just goes beyond the point of...

Hopes too high?

I so badly wanted to LOVE this movie that perhaps I set myself up for a fall. I love Jason Segel as a comedic actor and writer and Emily Blunt is hands down my favourite actress at the moment, but this film was so disappointing. I was expecting a laugh-a-minute comedy, with smart humour and (seeing as it came from the director of Forgetting Sarah Marshal) a...

It puts Emily Blunt in a wedding dress, which will appease the hopeless romantics in the house, even while making the institution of marriage seem ridiculously obsolete.

This is the same old safe, sappy movie that shows up on TBS every weekend.

Five-Year has comic bloat. Virtually every character gets their own moment of stand up, but in most cases, the bits aren't funny enough to warrant the screen time.

Drags and sags at 124 minutes. Luckily, the movie never runs on sitcom empty. How could it, with a terrific cast.

Blunt has never been more relaxed, and she and Segel have a believably warm chemistry. It's also nice to find a romantic comedy with so much respect for both its leads.

Nicholas Stoller and Jason Segel's latest collaboration offers a more relatable rom-com scenario while generating laughs that should still satisfy "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" fans.

A lively, original, and scattershot-hilarious ramble of a Judd Apatow production.

A lovely, sweet, funny, romantic, and supremely worthwhile endeavor that unfortunately takes longer to wrap up than it should.
