The Five-Year Engagement (2012)

mp’s rating: 7/10

Not having enough chick flicks dosage lately? You can rest assured that this one’s definitely worth the cinema trip!

Exactly one year after Tom Solomon meets Violet Barnes, he surprises her with a ring. By all accounts, Tom and Violet are destined for their happily ever after. However, this engaged couple just keep getting tripped up on the long walk down the aisle.

After Jason Segel’s great performance in How I Met Your Mother series, he has definitely made a big hit in this movie as well.

Knowing that every woman in the world would pretty much turn into a bridezilla after being engaged, The Five-Year Engagement tells a romantic comedy of the journey from popping the question to tying the knot.

Emily Blunt (The Devil Wears Prada) is stunning. With her slick British accent, (and a career as a psychologist in the movie), I have definitely put her on my great actresses list. As for Jason Segel, I have liked him from How I Met Your Mother, so it’s great to actually see him taking his talent to the box office.

The plot itself, I think, is great. While every couple wants their big day to become perfect, nothing would be. Wedding is not about having the perfect day, but rather making the best out of your bad days – it’s simply a matter of perspective.

So if you’re tired of accompanying your partners to movies like The Avengers, MIB 3, or Battleship, it’s now a good excuse (or revenge) to let him accompany you watching chick flicks.
