The Five-Year Engagement

What I liked:

  • I loved the characters.  They were real, funny, and flawed.
  • Emily Blunt and Jason Segel make a great couple.  Lots of chemistry.
  • Segel co-wrote the script.
  • Fantastic supporting cast: Chris Pratt, Alison Brie, Lauren Weedman, Mimi Kennedy, David Paymer, Jacki Weaver, Jim Piddock, Brian Posehn, Dakota Johnson, Rhys Ifans, Mindy Kaling, Chris Parnell and Kevin Hart.
  • I thought the story was great.  Very realistic, modern, funny, and touching.
  • Wonderful soundtrack.

What I didn't like:
  • It does feel like you have been watching this film for more than two hours but in it's defense, you have to get through a time span of 5 years.  Having said that, the story is entertaining enough so you don't get bored.

Grade: A-
