I enjoy both Jason Segel and Emily Blunt, so I was hoping to enjoy The Five-Year Engagement. It wasn’t quite what I was expecting.
It definitely descended into what seems to be rapidly becoming a common area for comedies, even romantic comedies, which is vulgar humor. However, it was a little more realistic than I was expecting. I liked the emphasis on not having to find the “perfect” person, because after all, we are all human. Our quirks can be our strengths.
Both Segel and Blunt were good, even if the parts written for them descended into wacky and cheesy at times. It will most likely be a popular movie, and I enjoyed it much more than the acclaimed Bridesmaids.
