This was much better than expected. Actually sat down and watched the entire movie all at once. Had a few R rated parts, but for the most part it was very cute. I thought it might be too much of a chick-flick, but my husband enjoyed it as well.
Was ok, could have actually been a good romantic comedy but had to again resort to crude jokes regarding body parts and functions like all other comedic films of today. This was not a shock once I saw the credits and Judd Apatow's name scrolled on the screen. If you are looking for funny, this is not it, if you are looking for a decent film about love and relationships, this could work.
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.
