Jason Segel and Emily Blunt star in this romantic comedy about a couple who keep having to put off their engagement for reason after reason. Coming from the director of Forgetting Sarah Marshall, one of the funniest movies of the last decade, this movie seems to have a lot of laughs just in the trailer. Much of the film’s appeal comes from the two leads, who both have great chemistry no matter who they are playing off of. The two of them together can only mean good things.
Should You See It? Yes, this is a comedy not to be missed just before the big summer blockbuster season.
Who To Take: Anyone really. Guys will like the comedy. Girls will like the romance. This is a great date film on all accounts but also one that you could take a group of friends to. It should be noted, however, that the film has an R rating, so you may want to steer clear from taking your mother in case there are raunchy scenes that might be awkward.
Are you in a relationship with someone who just won’t commit? Here are some tips on easing them into territory they might not be so comfortable with.
In The Five-Year Engagement, Jason Segel and Emily Blunt keep finding reasons to put off their wedding date. But eventually one decides that enough is enough and that after five years now is the time. This of course leads to some conflict. Check out our tips on how to prevent these problems.
1. Make your intentions clear. Perhaps they don’t want to scare you away by saying exactly what their intentions are for the future. So make sure that they know exactly where you want this to go so that there can be no confusion when the time for commitment comes.
2. Don’t guilt them into anything. If you are ready and they are not don’t push them. You will make them feel trapped and that could very easily cause the relationship to end.
3. Be patient. Good things come in time. Of course there is a point where two people just do not work together, but if you truly believe in the relationship, be patient and full commitment will come in time.
