I Give It a Year Reviews

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.

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

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.

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

"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.

This is an inspired idea for a rom-com, and Mazer makes it pay off with a climactic speech that's at once a parody of the genre and utterly, bizarrely heartfelt.

We Got This Covered

Sarcastic, frank and ultimately very funny, I Give It a Year most importantly understands the grating pitfalls of the romantic comedy and subverts them in more ways than one.

Not just diverting but surprisingly thoughtful, even if we're never given too much reason to care about Nat and Josh.

More a comedy than a romantic tale, this movie is decked out with hilarious side roles.

Dustin Putman

Splendidly pert dialogue, laugh-out-loud situations, and an ensemble of ready and willing performers combine to ultimately give "I Give It a Year" the volt of electricity it needs to keep from becoming familiar and obvious.

Makes an agreeable screen mess of emotions and impulses, carried largely by an ensemble clearly enjoying the opportunity to send up the foibles of coupledom.

As with Bridesmaids, Rose Byrne proves herself to be naturally funny, and the film is definitely cliche-averse: there is no way the story's final act would have survived the American test screening process.

Much like the original Death at a Funeral, it offers enough huge physically-driven laughs that it makes up for some of the lazier storytelling decisions.

Manages to have its wedding cake and spit on it too.

Given the propensity here for being 'outrageous', it's nice that the central foursome of players are so appealing.
