Critics Consensus

While certainly overlong, The Five-Year Engagement benefits from the easy chemistry of its leads and a funny, romantic script with surprising depth and intelligence.

Audience Reviews for The Five-Year Engagement

  • May 08, 2014
    Like Stoller's previous movies, this perceptive romantic comedy is less about the laughs (they are there, only timidly) than actually offering a keen and complex look into modern relationships, and it could have been even better if not for a long middle act, uneven in tone and pacing.

    Proof that Hollywood can still make romantic comedies that are funny and believable.

    Best thing about this was seeing my former home and current home all looking mighty purty. Oh, and the falling down on the ice stuff.

    Really enjoyable rom-com
