What's the longest an engagement should last? In The Five-Year Engagement, Tom and Violet (Jason Segel and Emily Blunt) stretch it out until it seems like there will never be a "happily ever after." Career plans and wacky hijinks keep thwarting their "save the date" until it seems like it'll never happen — until eventually, they decide to just get it over with.
In theaters this Friday, April 27, The Five-Year Engagement, directed by Nicholas Stoller, promises to be a hilarious look at one couple's crawl toward matrimony. Personally, I can't wait to see the chemistry between Jason Segel and Emily Blunt, with his boyish charm contrasted to her wry humor.
