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. -- (C) Universal R

Review For The Five-Year Engagement
|An exemplary modern romantic comedy, personal and symbolic, goofy and substantial, tightly imagined yet loosely strung, wise in bewilderment. |
Richard Brody-New Yorker
Like Apatow's "Funny People," the film is an intentional hybrid: half gag comedy, half open-ended exploration of everything that can go wrong -- and occasionally right -- between two people whom nature, if not society, means to be together.
David Denby-New Yorker
A charming, funny, reactionary mating comedy from the Judd Apatow factory...
David Edelstein-New York Magazine
A fun, entertaining picture, and another credit to Segel's rising career as a writer and star.
Stephen Whitty-Newark Star-Ledger
[It] feels poignant and real in a way few raunch comedies are.
Blunt has never been more relaxed, and she and Segel have a believably warm chemistry.
Elizabeth Weitzman-New York Daily News
It's a bit over-stuffed, but the narrative does come full-circle and successfully balances charming comedy gags grounded in a memorable and contemporary love story.
Emily Blunt and Segel do have excellent chemistry and comedic timing, but the film hits a slump at the halfway point and never manages to fully recover.
Jeremy Lebens-We Got This Covered
You'll definitely laugh and it's hard to resist the adorableness factor of Blunt and Segel.
Kristal Cooper-We Got This Covered
The Jason Segel-Emily Blunt romcom has a cold, standoffish first act but ultimately warms up, becoming a genuinely sweet romantic comedy.
A bit overlong, with a surprisingly moody middle act, but writer/actor Jason Segel and director/co-writer Nicholas Stoller continue to perfectly balance the laughs with the drama.
R. L. Shaffer-IGN DVD
If it sounds melancholy, that's because it's very melancholy, but it's also very funny throughout...
You could make a case for shearing a little baggage from the run time, but it's hard to complain too much because the laughs keep coming.
Martin Roberts-Fan The Fire
Overlong and curiously (wait for it) unengaging.
Charlie Lyne-Ultra Culture
Instead of being a 90-minute, three-act romantic comedy, this 124-minute plod almost begins to feel like a five-year term at its midpoint low.
Graham Young-Birmingham Post
The Five-Year Engagement seems at times to have taken its title literally - it's way too long. But though the pace sometimes drags, Blunt and Segal are amiable companions and the lack of gross-out gags makes a refreshing change.
Jason Best-Movie Talk
Offers plenty of chuckles - although not enough to justify the middle-aged spread of its two-hour running time.
Mark Kermode-Observer [UK]
As endearing as Segel and Blunt are, The Five-Year Engagement feels ... five years of your life spent waiting for the inevitable, with not as many laughs along the way ...
This is a grown-up rom-com that incredibly doesn't outstay its welcome despite a meaty runtime, because Blunt and Segel create charming characters who are easy to root for.
Shaun Munro-What Culture
[F]eels about five years long. With an almost total lack of... conflict, it feels like it's spinning its narrative wheels... There simply never seems to be any reason why lovebirds Tom and Violet can't just get married already.
MaryAnn Johanson-Flick Filosopher
Somewhere, buried in The Five-Year Engagement, is a sparkling screwball comedy fighting against a turntable running on long play.
Tara Brady-Irish Times
A pleasant, if predictable, time-passer.
Alex Zane-Sun Online
Cut away the flab, and there's probably an adorable hour-long movie in there.
Christopher Tookey-Daily Mail [UK]
It's honest, mature and insightful but also fun, silly and touchingly romantic.
Henry Fitzherbert-Daily Express
Segel and Stoller could - no, should have been bolder: their leading lady deserves it.
Robbie Collin-Daily Telegraph
It's a long day's journey into relationship insight, but with fun on the way.
Nigel Andrews-Financial Times
