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.

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.
