The Five-Year Engagement by Nicholas Stoller, 2012 (R)

with Emily Blunt (Wild Target), Jason Segel (Jeff Who Lives At Home, Bad Teacher), Alison Brie, Rhys Ifans (Notting Hill), Chris Pratt, Chris Parnell, Mindy Kaling, Brian Posehn, Dakota Johnson (Beastly), Mimi Kennedy, Adam Campbell, Jim Piddock, David Paymer, Kevin Hart, Jacki Weaver, Michael Ensign, Clement von Franckenstein, Jane Carr, Randall Park, Lauren Weedman

Jason Segel and Emily Blunt star in this contemporary romantic comedy as an engaged young couple who discovers that the more they get to know each other, the more unpredictable their commitment to getting married becomes.

I believe it is one of these hysterical comedy that need to push the button too far to think they are funny. So, Jason Segel has become a near-grizzly, while he was the most delicate cook in the planet. Emily Blunt is so naively good that it is just stupid. The length of the engagement doesn't seem in the end such a big deal, since they short-cut everything to compare it to an obvious normality, making everything even more obvious. The ending is such a fast twist that you feel you've been watching a trailer all along. Not a good movie at all.
Ah I just got the explanation, this movie is from the same producers as Bridesmaid! I guess in this case, they absolutely failed.
