The Five-Year Engagement

Review: The Five-Year Engagement

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 bit of crassness in there as well. Unfortunately the trailer showed ALL the best and funniest parts and the rest of the film was slow and downright depressing! It was not at all what I expected and should have been 20 minutes shorter. I would definitely recommend waiting for the DVD on this one =(
