2.0 out of 5 stars Five years that felt like an eternity
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring, sometimes even tedious., 2 May 2014

Bought this as it was cheap before Christmas but was very disappointed - the plot gets lost halfway through and it isn't very funny. Despite being a fan of both Blunt and Segal I can't give it a higher rating.

This film was nothing out of the ordinary!

The Blu-ray quality is great but the film is only worth a one time watch!

This review is from: The Five-Year Engagement [DVD] [2012] (DVD)
This is an interesting hit and miss romantic comedy aka "chick flick." Tom (Jason Segel) is a chef in San Francisco who is engaged to Violet (Emily Blunt) a Brit. They meet at a costume New Year Eves party and don't worry if you miss it, they replay it (definite chick flick giveaway).

In a role reversal, he gives up his career so she can do her doctorate studies at the University of Michigan for a couple of years. They put off getting married while Michigan turns Tom into Grizzly Adams. Meanwhile Susan (Alison Brie) who is Violet's sister gets married to the somewhat crude Alex (Chris Pratt) a friend and co-worker of Tom.

The humor moves from clever to awkward to bad. There is a doughnut metaphor that starts in the middle of the film, that has moments of cleverness. The extreme overreaction of the main characters due to minor difficulties is perhaps the downfall of the film. While the film needed to create conflict, it did so in an inane manner that was neither funny nor realistic. Emily Blunt gives us a good performance.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex, male rear nudity (Jason Segel) Pale in comparison to "Bridesmaids."

1.0 out of 5 stars I had hoped this would be different..., 5 Dec 2012
This review is from: The Five-Year Engagement [DVD] [2012] (DVD)
Yet another romantic comedy that has little romance and not much comedy either. Following in the vein of The Breakup, and numerous other American romcoms since then, the protagonists are, in large part, both selfish and stupid. Meaning it is difficult to warm to either of them, which is kind of the point of a romcom, isn't it? You root for the main characters to work things out or get together. In this one they both kind of get what their selfishness and stupidity deserves and, while it is nice to see them get together, you don't really care about them by the time they have displayed the depths of their stupidity. A shame as Segel and Blunt are usually so watchable.

1.0 out of 5 stars ...felt like 10 years-, 2 Nov 2012
This review is from: The Five-Year Engagement [DVD] [2012] (DVD)
The first 30 minutes of this tiresome film were semi-promising- with a few cleverly written quips- but the plot meandered terribly after this- with scenes that felt as they were thought up at the spur of the moment to create something out of an empty , pointless diatribe.
Emily Blunt has made some great script choices , this being an unfortunate dud. Jason Segal plays exactly the same character in every film- he was amusing in Forgetting Sarah Marshall- fairly funny in, I Love You Man' , but he seems to be in a downward spiral from there.
Chris Pratt seems to have promise, but his supporting role couldn't save this film from crashing and burning.
Monotonous and extremely long.

1.0 out of 5 stars Long Awaited, SERIOUSLY disappointed, 28 Nov 2012
This review is from: The Five-Year Engagement [DVD] [2012] (DVD)
Apart from a few brief funny moments (which are predominately seen on the trailer) this film is seriously not worth the money or the hours of your life that you will waste watching it. my recommendation is to steer clear and choose something different!
