The Five-Year Engagement

There's just one week left until the release of the romantic comedy The Five-Year Engagement starring Jason Segel and Emily Blunt, and while we've only seen one trailer for the R-rated comedy from director Nicholas Stoller, that's pretty much been enough to convince me to see the flick. But for those who still aren't sure what to expect, a new red band trailer has just surfaced to show us that we could be looking at another romantic comedy that is just as good as Forgetting Sarah Marshall, especially with a great comedic supporting cast including Alison Brie, Chris Pratt, Kevin Hart, Mindy Kaling and Chris Parnell.

Here's the red band trailer for Nicholas Stoller's Five-Year Engagement from Funny or Die:

Beginning where most romantic comedies end, The Five-Year Engagement charts the ups and downs of an engaged couple (Jason Segel & Emily Blunt) who keep getting tripped up on the long walk down the aisle.

The Five-Year Engagement is directed by filmmaker/writer Nicholas Stoller, director of Get Him to the Greek and Forgetting Sarah Marshall, writer of Gulliver's Travels and The Muppets. The screenplay was co-written by Jason Segel & Stoller, just like Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Produced by Apatow Productions and Judd Apatow, Universal releases The Five-Year Engagement on April 27th, 2012 next spring. Good?

The ending...Black "Bunny day" needs to be an official day. I like it, Blunt looks very comfortable in comedy...and she's extremely pretty. Anderton, did you see that they changed the line during the crossbow scene from "I'm Pocahntas" to "I'm Katniss"?

That looks awful 

Geoffrey Shauger on Apr 21, 2012

I participated in a screening for the film and enjoyed it.  There were some slow parts though and overall made the film feel long (can't complain since it is suppose to cover 5 years).  What I liked was how they set up scenarios that connects with the audience since it goes through the phases of relationships.  This helps you connect with the characters.  The supporting roles are a nice addition and flow well within the story of the main leads.  Has many funny parts and not too much over the top type of jokes. I always think Jason Segel is sarcastic with the way he delivers his lines.  Makes it difficult to take him seriously during the dramatic scenes.  I don't think you'll regret watching this as a Spring comedy film.
