The Five-Year Engagement review
Daniel Corleone - wrote on 01/26/13
The first 11 minutes just spells disaster. Just too many idiotic figures displayed. Tom Solomon (Jason Segel) is a chef who proposes to Violet Barnes (Emily Blunt). Alex Eilhauer (Chris Pratt) is probably the most annoying with so many lousy lines.The couple plan a wedding. "Are you pregnant?" Answer: "Just a little." Just one of several moronic dialogues through-out the picture. You have Alex swearing with a kid on the table, Tom not looking after the kid, Vaneetha and Ming toast, the moments of stupidity just ensues. Blunt was unimpressive and Segel just unfunny (effective on TV but just not onscreen in this rater's opinion). The Five-Year Engagement's humor was just not appealing for this reviewer. Lengthy, dull and plain uninteresting. Forgettable and ludicrous all the same.
