The Five-Year Engagement (2012)

Hola! Since i haven’t finished watching any kdrama series, so Iwill reviewed  Hollywood movies i recently watched. It’s The Five Year Engagement. I’m really disappointed with this movie. I thought it will be one of the sweetest chick flick movie like 27 Dresses or Bridesmaids, turns out it is not. 

the long awaited to be husband and wife.

The Five Year Engagement tells a story of Tom Solomon (Jason Segel) and Violet Barnes (Emily Blunt) who lived in San Fransisco. After one year dating, Tom decided that Violet is the one for him and ask her to be his wife exactly on their 1 year anniversary. Violet accept the proposal and they're agreeing to get married few months later. But unfortunately they have to postpone the wedding since Violet, who is psychology PhD graduate  get accepted into the University of Michigan’s post doctorate in psychology program which lasts two years. 

the proposal
Refuse to wolk on a long distance relationship, Tom follows his fiancee to Michigan and quit from his job as a sous-chef in one of the most popular restaurant in San Fransico. Sadly, his decision to move with his fiancee is not the best decision he’s ever made. When Violet is happy with her new job, Tom has to accept the fact that his new job is a sandwich maker in fast food eatery.

the beginning of the trouble
After a while, Tom becomes really weird. He never shaped his beard and put on a weight. The communication between him and Violet become dull. They decided to take a break and postponed the wedding much further which lead to the most difficult time on their life until it come to the decision will the wedding still on or they have to cancel it forever.

I don’t know why but i don’t find this movie interesting at all. I feel so bored watching this one and want to stop it then go to sleep. But i feel bad because i really love Jason Segel and Emily Blunt. It’s a shame Emily Blunt agree to play in this movie because I really love her acting in “The Young Victoria. I think this movie is simply not her class.

I think they have to make the storyline more interesting and catchy. Even though some scenes are quite interesting, but still overall this movie is humdrum.  I don’t know why the director, Nicholas Stoller, who ever gave us such an amazing movie Yes Manwill come up with this kind of movie.

However I still get the bottom line from this movie, which is you have to be able to give up something precious for you in order to get something more priceless and if you really sure enough about what you want to do then do it, do it immediately.

Anyway, if I have to put points i will put 5 out of 10.
