Review: The Five-Year Engagement
A Wonderful And Funny Look At A Love StoryDirector 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 way.
Emily Blunt and Jason Segel truly shine as the leads, providing a believable couple that tries to love one another through all the trouble they experience along the way.
Supported by Alison Brie of "Community" and "Mad Men", and Chris Pratt of "Parks And Recreation", it is a film that carries all the typical Apatow (back again producing) traits, that of quirky characters, love and it's nuances and the occasional dirty moment that make these a delight to watch.
While parts may be drawn out, as previously said both Blunt and Segel's chemistry makes the movie. Their ease around one another is a delight to watch, and make the lighter moments even funnier.
"The Five-Year Engagement" is another great addition to the Apatow stable of films, and would go down a treat for a night out with your significant other.
