The Five-Year Engagement suffers from the same problem that is becoming more and more apparently in any of Judd Apatow's films, in the fact that it's far too long than it needs to be. It's the story of an engaged couple, whose marriage plans keep getting postponed/delayed because of various circumstances in their lives. While the film does have some sweet, tender moments, I think there are too many forced comedic set pieces, that at times make the film almost feel more like a series of comedic montages than a structured narrative-which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but in this case these comedic moments are very hit-or-miss. I really think Jason Segel is an incredibly charming leading man, who feels very genuine and I think without him, this movie would have suffered and failed almost entirely.
Love of all things cinema brought me here.
