what the others say
The Hollywood Reporter
"The Five-Year Engagement originates with a pre-mythologised meet-cute and ends with Hollywood whimsy but insists on making the hurdles between as little like rom-com contrivance as the filmmakers can get away with."
"While Segel and Blunt make likable enough leads, the strain is visible as the filmmakers try to make comedic hay out of disconnected segments, contrived situations and tangential characters."
"Another solid hit from Planet Apatow - charming, funny and remarkably in tune with real life."
