The Five-Year Engagement

It was interesting to see Jason Segel team up again with Nicholas Stoller.  I had my first child right around the time that The Muppets came out – we probably watched that movie one hundred times.  Anyway, this movie is pretty much what you think it is (and maybe a bit better).  Segel and Blunt are fantastic together and there is real chemistry between them.  The plot is a bit over-stuffed but not by too much.  The film works better as a sweet romance than it does when it tries to be funny.
