    Much like the engagement period the title refers to, this movie was way too damn long. Over two hours long, and it drags in parts. Other than that, though, it was fine. Relatively funny, Emily Blunt is cute, Chris Pratt was pretty great and there were a lot of cool cameos. It was a pretty enjoyable film that gets dragged down in the middle. Could have used some more editing.

    This amiable, rambling, semi-sorta-plotless comedy coasted by on the easy charm of its leads, never really extending itself enough to be either particularly good or particularly bad. A film this slight should have been much shorter, though, and it's not like there's no fat in there that could have been trimmed. (Big props go to Brie for nailing Blunt's accent in order to play her sister. It's perfect.)

    Just a bad film. The leads aren't funny, which was a disappointment since I like Segal and Blunt. The supporting cast is the only thing that makes this film bearable. Way too long. Do not recommend.

    "C is for condom. That's good enough for me." I love Emily Blunt.

    That was a bit overlong, but it had a lot of really clever and hilarious moments that really endeared me. Plus, the taco truck segment was better than all of Chef. Rhys Ifans needs to do more comedy. And I want a Choose-Your-Own-Wedding.

    You'd think a film with such an impressive cast of comedic performers would be funny. But it isn't. It's also fucking loooong. What a shame. Plus points for Emily Blunt and Alison Brie, and the Elmo scene.

    Pues es una comedia de enredos de pareja con Jason Segel así que ya sabemos que nos vamos a encontrar: buenos diálogos, personajes secundarios memorables, gran química con la chica de turno (increíble Emily Blunt en su faceta cómica) y la forma tan graciosa de tomar cosas tan propias de la vida en pareja y de la vida en general, la película dura media hora mas de la cuenta y llega a perder el ritmo varias veces por eso, sino, estaríamos hablando de una comedia romántica notable.

    I literally changed my rating at the last minute because that semi-impromptu wedding at the end was the best part.

    Cute rom-com. Great cast. Felt a bit too long. Classic Apatow (and even though he just produced it, his presence is really noticeable.)

    Directed by Nicholas Stoller, starring Emily Blunt, Jason Segel and a fantastic supporting cast with the stand outs being Alsion Brie and Chris Pratt. The Five Year Engagement is a funny deconstruction of relationship movies though it doesn't entirely set itself apart from the genre it is riffing on. With a well written script, strong performances and lovely cinematography, this a really well made and enjoyable film. The main negative is the pacing and running time; it definitely could have used a trim and also tighter pacing but that really isn't much of an issue when you have a cast like this.

    Me hizo sonreír la mayor parte del tiempo y me saco una que otra risa, pero rayos, de verdad necesita otra ida a la sala de edición. Qué hermosa se ve Emily Blunt aquí.

    “The Five-Year Engagement” starts with a proposal. Not the most common beginning of a romantic comedy, yet a lot fresher. In the movie the two main characters have already found each other, but the way to the altar has various obstacles.

    Tom and Violet get engaged and are happier than ever. Then Violet gets an offer for an important job in Michigan, for two years. Tom quits his job as a successful chef in San Francisco and moves to Michigan…
