[5.50/10] The Five-Year Engagement (2012)

The Five-Year Engagement (2012)

QuickRating: It's realistic, current, charming and fairly engaging, but "The Five-Year Engagement" is also overlong, only mildly amusing and has a very weird atmosphere that that makes it look moody. The usually amusing Jason Segel and the beautiful and uber-talented Emily Blunt are great, but only on their own. Their chemistry as an on-screen couple is lacking big time and their relationship just doesn't feel believable enough.

That's too bad. I thought this one sounded kind of cool. Maybe I will catch it on DVD. I love both of these actors.

Mel, I was sure I'm gonna love it, but then surprisingly I didn't. At least not as much as I expected. Both actors were amazing, the movie not so much.

Maurice Mitchell said...

Yeah. I like Jason Siegel, but this doesn't sound like one of his best works. Too bad he lost weight for the role.

Maurice, I didn't know he had to loose weight for this role. He didn't seem skinny to me at all. LOL.
Definitely not one of his best films.
