The Five-Year Engagement - AMC Empire 25



Mike: Erica won tickets to an early screening, and since this was something she was really looking forward to and stars Jason Segel, we couldn't pass up on the opportunity - even if it meant standing in a free screening line. Thankfully, this screening was very well-organized. The movie was an equally pleasant experience. As was the case with Forgetting Sarah Marshall, in The Five-Year Engagement Jason Segel gives his own spin on the romantic comedy. Not only is the film incredibly funny, it's also sincere. It's a truly honest look at relationships. I also liked that, while it's a wedding-themed film, didn't get caught up in all the typical wedding planning antics.

Erica: I LOVED this movie. Not a surprise considering Jason Segel is in it. I normally don't like romantic comedies but Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller make a dynamic duo and hey free screening...I'm in. This movie was funny, clever and everything in between. Chris Pratt was extremely funny and was a scene stealer throughout. It has a lot of the NBC Thursday night line up in it (Mindy Kaling, Chris Pratt, Alison Brie plus Emily Blunt is married to John Krasinski). As Mike said, this was the most organized screening I have ever seen. Normally I avoid these like the plague but it's Jason Segel...and best of all the cast was in attendance. Another dream come true got checked off my bucket list that night...

I recommend this movie highly if you want to see a funny, witty, feel good movie.
