Movie Reviews

  • this comedy that has some funny bits but unlike the raucous Bridesmaids is unable to sustain its humor
    3 of 5 by Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat [Spirituality and Practice ]
  • the usual Apatow comedy themes are touched upon
    by John Anderson [Variety ]
  • the story drags on too long, and it's not as inspired to begin with
    3 of 5 by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic ]
  • the script has enough wit and charm to overcome the shackles of its premise
    3 of 4 by Joe Lozito [Big Picture Big Sound ]
  • the level of emotional honesty is refreshingly high, and the level of writing refreshingly sophisticated. Old doughnuts, new doughnuts, it's a good mix
    3 of 4 by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer ]
  • the comedy even turns violent, with gory incidents involving a crossbow and a lost toe
    Review rate : B+ by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • messy and meanders, with some situations playing out more sharply than others
    2.5 of 5 by Randy Myers [San Jose Mercury News ]
  • loose flaps, protracted finale and all
    3.5 of 5 by Michael Phillips [Chicago Tribune ]
  • like most contemporary romantic comedies, The Five-Year Engagement aims to have us leaving the theater feeling good
    3 of 4 by Andrew Schenker [Slant Magazine ]
  • it's poetically apt thatThe Five-Year Engagement is a lovely, sweet, funny, romantic, and supremely worthwhile endeavor that unfortunately takes longer to wrap up than it should
    Review rate : B+ by Nathan Rabin [AV Club ]
  • isn't afraid of running longer than viewers expect of a romantic comedy
    by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • all this character fleshing-out does make for a pretty expansive tale, but "Five-Year Engagement" hardly ever feels drawn out
    4.5 of 5 by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies ]
