    El principal problema con esta película es que carece de personalidad. Por momentos tiene su encanto, pero sólo es por lo excelente del reparto. Pero sus tremendos baches la hacen tediosa y quizá más larga de lo que debió ser.

    Would have been an average to above average rom-com if it were 25 min shorter. I did laugh a good bit.

    The Five-Year Engagement takes the old boring Apatow formula and just blatantly uses it. The Five-Year Engagement is all but original. It's super-clichéd and generic, it's got it all: the happy relationship that starts falling apart upon engagement, the douchy best friend, the eventual break-up, the awful sadness montage that comes with it and a uneven direction.

    The two main actors had wonderful chemistry together - Emily Blunt and Jason Segel were exceptional in their easy roles, and offered much…

    Certainly a very flawed film, with its comedic misfires making these aspects all the more apparent. That being said, it's interest in developing its central relationship over a long period and it's earnest desire to give such a wide range to the highs and lows (as uncomfortable as they may be) make it a film to be mostly admired but moderately enjoyed as well.

    + Rhys Ifans character is not defined so much as by how he is written but…

    Like 2010′s Going the Distance, The Five-Year Engagement probes into the strain that professional ambition places on a relationship. Jason Segel, again co-writing with frequent collaborator and director Nicholas Stoller, plays a rising sous chef in San Francisco who is forced to give up his position in the kitchen when his fiancée, played by Emily Blunt, is offered a postdoc fellowship in the midwest. Most of what follows goes down amiably, holding few surprises but packing plenty of charm. Where…

    My favorite of the "produced by Judd Apatow" movies. Plus you get Alison Brie giving an English accent her best shot.

    Time is the problem, and not just the running time, although that's also a problem. Committing yourself to five-years is a bad idea, handcuffing the central relationship to check marks of commonality: dead relatives, crazy in-laws, professional sacrifices, and then the roundabout dead stretch whereby both Segel and Blunt obtain new partners only to realize that they're unsuitable, all of which is required by a five-year mandate. On the other hand, "marriage is hell" has been a Hollywood battle cry…

    Once again Nicolas Stoller and Jason Segal have written a well rounded film about relationships. Although not near as good as Forgetting Sarah Marshall, this film is a nice one to see for some laughs and even drama. I am a huge fan of Segal as well as Emily Blunt, if you enjoy them like me then this film will be hard to not like on some level.

    Segal and Blunt play a couple that has been together for a…
