It's a bit of a mainstream comedy, sure, and for that it sometimes feels slight or conventionally paced, but it's packed with more heart and perception than most, and it treats its characters as fully realized people.

Any film that makes Rose Byrne unappealing has its head well and truly up its bum.

Clumsy and cute - that's my concise review of regular Sacha Baron Cohen collaborator Dan Mazer's directorial debut I Give It a Year.

As long as you can deal with romantic leads who are rather flawed and a more cynical tone than you may expect, you should find plenty to laugh about, offset with the odd grimace.

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

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.

[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.

A fun, amusing, will-they-or-won't-they confection -- a love rhombus wherein a hastily married couple grapples with mutually wandering eyes.
Full Review | Original Score: B

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.
