It's funny, yes, but also depressing, like watching the mating habits of mollusks.

"I Give It a Year" is a smart farce that would make Hugh Grant and his fans proud.

The big laughs compensate for the lack of a suitable emotional payoff.

You might not want to stick by it in sickness and in health, 'til death do you part, but it's a reasonable enough companion for a night out at the cinema.

Mazer's previous onscreen experience is undeniably obvious. No penis is left unfilmed, no crude scene prevented from going on far too long.

Mazer, a Sacha Baron Cohen collaborator, directs this comedy without much snap, crackle or pop.

In addition to some trite set pieces, writer-director Dan Mazer serves up nothing more than conspicuous cynicism masquerading as comedy.

The tonal clash is jarring, and Mazer doesn't help matters by erring on the side of blandness.

Can a comedy be too funny for its own good?

[VIDEO ESSAY] As a premise, a doomed marriage sounds like a no-brainer: you can pile on outrageous episodes of slapstick, physical comedy and biting wit. Unfortunately, "I Give It a Year" is a no-brainer.

It's not romantic in the slightest, and it is quite comedic on occasion, but the parts don't fit together at all.

A fun, amusing, will-they-or-won't-they confection -- a love rhombus wherein a hastily married couple grapples with mutually wandering eyes.

As pure comedy, it's a hoot.

While individual actors can be amusing, especially among supporting players, "I Give It a Year" is thoroughly tone deaf. I wouldn't give it five minutes.

Turns the romantic comedy on its head by utilizing a simple and effective formula that blends parody and affecting relationship dramatics.

A smutty script and a passel of objectionable characters form an imperfect rom-com union - one that will, with any luck, fade from the mind long before its title suggests.

Whatever attachment we might form for the characters or their fates gets lost in thickets of farce and barrages of one-liners.

There's some very funny stuff on the margins, but overall it's pretty weak.

"I Give It a Year" holds a special place in film history. It's the only romantic comedy where you root for the main couple to get a divorce.
