From Amazon.co.uk

Planning a wedding is no easy task, and finding the perfect moment for the big occasion is nothing short of impossible, but Violet (Emily Blunt) and Tom (Jason Segel) have no idea of the challenges ahead of them when they decide to get married. This slapstick comedy plays like the art of awkward: Violet, Tom, their friends, and families all have huge propensities for saying and doing the absolutely worst, most awkward thing in any given situation. From a bungled marriage proposal to a multimedia presentation about Tom's ex-girlfriends at the couple's engagement party, and an inappropriate hookup between Violet's sister Susie (Alison Brie) and Tom's good friend Alex (Chris Pratt), the impending nuptials promise nothing but trouble for everyone but viewers in the mood to laugh. Rising chef Tom sacrifices a job he loves in San Francisco, along with the promise of swift promotion, to follow academic Violet to a teaching fellowship in Michigan. The only job Tom can find there is in a sandwich shop, and the move puts their wedding plans on hold. As Violet pursues her dreams of teaching, Tom refuses to admit how unhappy he really is, instead desperately pursuing a friendship with a fellow faculty spouse that lands him with some very odd hobbies and not much fulfillment. Eventually, the strain takes a huge toll on their relationships with one another, their friends, coworkers, and families. But one thing is certain, director Nicholas Stoller makes sure that their journey is just as funny as it is sad. The Five-Year Engagement is an irreverent comedy that takes every opportunity to go well beyond the boundaries of good taste in the quest for laughter, and that really is the main point of the film. That said, Violet and Tom do actually share a few heartfelt moments and discover some very real truths--that no one can anticipate and solve all the problems of an impending marriage before they actually take the plunge, and there is absolutely no "perfect time" to get married. Of course, those moments of truth are arrived at by a winding path of awkward conversations, bawdy humor, ridiculous situations, and childish behavior that will keep viewers laughing out loud for pretty much the entire film. --Tami Horiuchi

2.0 out of 5 stars Five years that felt like an eternity 6 Mar 2014
Format:DVD
Well-I guess most people would agree Emily Blunt is very attractive and there were a couple of excellent Van Morrison songs to enjoy in the soundtrack and-well that's it! Overlong, no chemistry between the two leads, not funny, largely tedious, couldn't wait for it to end.

I've have seen some bad films in the past & this one defiantly is in my top five (alone with Mr & Mrs Smith & My Super Ex Girlfriend)!!

I like both Emily Blunt after seeing her in films like 'The Young Victoria' & 'The Adjustment Bureau' & Jason Segel who i regularly watch in 'How I Met Your Mother' but their acting in this film was wooden - there was zero chemistry between the two - which made it hard to believe they were in love. As for the comedy - What Comedy?? The only part i found amusing was where Blunt & her on screen sister were doing the Elmo & Cookie Monster voices. I watched it to the end hoping it got better but sadly not!

I was expecting so much more from this film after seeing it advertised when it was in the cinema. If you don't want to waste 2 hours of you life - DO NOT BUY THIS FILM!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Can't believe I watched it all! 17 Nov 2012
By Doris
Format:DVD
This film is terrible!!! It was a predictable, badly written and unrealistic story. It made no sense whatsoever. Basically a couple meet, get engaged, then she gets a super duper job and he gives up his job and they both move - yet despite living together for some unknown reason are unable to get married? Won't tell you more as you may want to watch it, but suffice to say while the woman is pursuing her career noone is happy, when she sees the light happiness is in abundance.
On the plus side the acting (with the distint exception of the main character's sister) is making the best of a bad script.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not As Good As I Was Expecting 30 Jun 2012
Format:DVD
I have just seen this in the cinema and I have to say it was a bit of a letdown. I loved Bridesmaids and since this was from the same producers I was expecting it to be just as funny but it wasn't.
I really like Emily Blunt and I think Jason Segel is hilarious and in places the film was funny but it could have been so much better.
Tom and Violet get engaged but their wedding plans are soon put on hold when Violet is accepted at university and so she and Tom pack up and move to Michigan.
As the years pass their wedding keeps getting delayed much to the dismay of family and friends who are eager for them to get married.
At times the film seemed to drag on and the ending was predictible but it seemed to take ages for the film to get there without much happening. I think the film could easily have been 30 minutes shorter and not really lost anything plot wise.
It wasn't a bad film but it could have been much funnier.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful 29 Aug 2013
Format:DVD
I brought this movie as I absolutely love the two main actors in it however I couldn't have been more disappointed. I only sat through the entire thing as I was thinking 'Surely something must happen...This is supposed to be funny.' Alas nothing really did happen nor was there any real comedy in this movie at all.

Would not recommend.

This is the worst movie I have ever seen!! Ever! It was a paintful experience with every passing minute, and like another reviewer, if given the option I would have given zero stars. I have seen bad movies but this put me in such a bad mood and I never even bothered torturing myself to the end... !

1.0 out of 5 stars COMEDY - WHAT COMEDY 25 Feb 2013
Format:DVD
Very rarely have I watched a film that has made me want to search to the end hoping that even by fast forwarding it would become amusing.... unfortunately Five Year engagement made me want to do just that. Having seen both stars in films where they stole the show with their comedic turns this film failed to raise a laugh. The fact that it was spread over two hours was even more painful. I had selected this film as the trailer at the cinema gave the premise that this could be hilarious, however all I can say is the editing team deserve the greatest credit as when the clips when shown in the real context of the film they too failed to make me laugh. One to miss I am afraid.
