The Five-Year Engagement

April 5, 2012

Tonight I went to a screening of The Five-Year Engagement. It has elements of a chick flick but it’s more of a dramedy and the usual Judd Apatow produced type comedy. It is a great funny story but unfortunately the story runs a little too long. It was 2 hours which is about 30 minutes too long because it really drags it’s feet in the middle to try and keep the story going. The cast is ok with really Chris Pratt, Alison Brie, Kevin Hart, Brian Posehn, Randall Park, and Rhys Ifans providing the solid base for the movie with some funny one liners and keeping the movie from falling into the Chick Flick zone. After that it tries to hard and becomes boring and you just don’t know what you’re watching after awhile because it loses it’s identity for a little bit during the middle. Overall it’s a good Date Movie that will give you a few good laughs but if you’re by yourself skip it.
