Glad we rented it verses watching it in the theater. It ran long and was a little disappointing considering the actor lineup. It requires attention so it's not the one recommended if you want to multi-task.
Ughh..thanks to these nit wits who gave this movie 1 star I almost did not watch this. These imbeciles complaint that it's too long,..well it's because it actually has character development and layers and layers of how relationships ups and downs.
And let confess that I really can't stand Jason Segel from Forgetting Sarah Marshall but he's quite much improved and was very funny and dramatic when he needed to be. If anything, IMO he did a better job than Emily Blunt, only because his character was much more difficult to play. Anyways, it was very funny, made me laugh out loud many times as I really like this kind of off beat raunchy whacky humor that is unpredictable. A-
Both of these actors are really good, but this movie was so juvenile. The writing of which Jason Segel was responsible for did not deserve to spoken by Emily Blunt. Why do modern comedies insist on reading like 14 yr old toilet jokes? Disappointing.
I really enjoyed this movie. I think it did a good job explaining the different emotions a long-term relationship goes through. I really related to this movie since I was going through the same things with my bf of 5 years.
