The director and writer/star of Forgetting Sarah Marshall reteam for the irreverent comedy The Five-Year Engagement. Beginning where most romantic comedies end, the new film from director Nicholas Stoller, producer Judd Apatow (Knocked Up, The 40-Year-Old Virgin) and Rodney Rothman (Get Him to the Greek) looks at what happens when an engaged couple, Jason Segel and Emily Blunt, keeps getting tripped up on the long walk down the aisle. The film was written by Segel and Stoller.
Emily Blunt and Jason Segel star as a couple who ride out an unusually long engagement in this romantic comedy from producer Judd Apatow. Nicholas Stoller directs from his own script co-written by Segel, with a supporting cast that includes Alison Brie, Chris Pratt, and Rhys Ifans.
"[T]he movie is an enjoyable grab bag of messy life circumstances....It's a comedy about falling from love, and grasping your way back to happily ever after." -- Grade: B 05/04/2012
"This unhurried comedy is devoted to realistic relationship issues....It's rare to see main characters as grounded and plausible as Tom and Violet are, and when they finally find their way back into each other's arms, it feels earned." 04/26/2012
