Editorial Reviews

Since they met at a party, ambitious high-flyer Nat and struggling novelist Josh have been deliriously happy despite their differences. Josh is a thinker, Nat's a doer... but the spark between them is undeniable. Their wedding is a dream come true, but family, friends and even the minister who marries them aren't convinced that they can last. Josh's ex-girlfriend, Chloe, and Nat's handsome American client Guy, could offer attractive alternatives. With their first anniversary approaching, neither wants to be the first to give up, but will they make it?

I saw this movie in February of this year when I happened to be in Sydney, Australia and it just opened in the theatres there. The DVD/Blue-Ray is already available from Amazon's UK website.

"I Give It a Year" (2013 release; 97 min.) is a British rom-com that follows a young couple in the first year of their marriage. Nat (played by Rose Byrne) and Josh (played by Rafe Spall) marry only months after meeting and then find out that marriage isn't all they thought it would be. We find the couple at a marriage counselor retelling in flashbacks what has happened, primarily Nat being courted by a smooth American business executive (played by Simon "Then Mentalist" Baker) and Josh still having feelings for an ex-girlfriend (played by Anna Faris). To tell you much more of the plot would surely ruin your viewing experience, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

Several comments: this movie goes blatantly after the same vibe that made "Four Wedding and a Funeral" and "Notting Hill" such smash international successes. In that sense, the movie is utterly predictable from the get-go, yet I must admit that I found myself charmed and entertained throughout the movie. Rose Byrne oozes charms as the leading lady. Then there is Josh's best friend (and best man at the wedding), played by Steven Merchant, who goes on to steal several scenes in the movie with his politically incorrect remarks about everything and everyone. Also quite delightful is Minnie Driver as one of the extended family members.

5.0 out of 5 stars bitter sweet and really real, not so sweet July 3, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I just laughed and cringed my way through this excellent movie. A quick marriage built on lust,
quickly unravels and what fun and a bit painful it all is. Rose Byrne and Rafe Spall are the
not for each other newlyweds who go through quite a time together. Anna Farris and Simon Baker
are suitably unsuitable also.

The ending is quite ridiculously wonderful, as one would expect
from a director who did Bridget Jones and Love Actually, two of my other favorite rom-coms.

Made me want to have a do-over for my former marriages, maybe my former life in general, if such
a thing were possible.

In this movie it is possible and sooooo funny. Enjoy with someone you might just love after all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Non-Stop Hilarity September 21, 2013
By B. Ying
Format:DVD
This is a British rom-com that comes with some crude jokes.
If you can't take or appreciate it, you are missing one of the funniest comedy
in recent years.
It comes with a simple and well-worn premise.
A couple got married and some friend said "I give it a year".
Soon the married couple finds the flaws in each other and each discovers his/hers
new loves.
The funny dialogues come in British rapid-fire fashion which one must be accustomed
to in order to appreciate the humor which often in risque fashion.
The four lead actor did a fabulous job.
The only flaw is the ending which one supposed to rally the new matches but instead
one kind of hoping they would go back together again.

Format:Blu-ray
Maybe the British should leave raunchy humor to Hollywood. Raunchy isn't exactly what one thinks of when trying to do clever dry humor either. It's like trying to hit someone over the head with a balloon animal to knock them out. Add a British accent to each of these? Something just isn't coming together. Actually, this movie seems to have trouble deciding which subgenre it's going to fit into.

However, if you are looking for something atypical, this movie could still be for you. If you are a happily committed couple looking for something romantic to enjoy on a Friday night, probably not for you unless you want to point fingers and say "Thank heaven that isn't us!" This movie much more closely resembles a break up movie than anything else. It does try to redeem relationships at the end and it does have some very funny moments if you can enjoy them individually and ignore the rest.

THE PLOT: The movie opens with some very sweet moments with Nat and Josh including their wedding. Things take a very swift turn as the movie begins systematically dismembering their relationship and illustrating every reason they are absolutely not made for each other. Plenty of other examples of awful relationships seem to abound. I can't get into it too much without spoilers, so lets just say the message of this movie seems to extol "be with the one you probably should be with, not the one you chose".

Much of the humor falls horribly flat. Oddly, even some characters in the movie intentionally project humor that falls horribly flat as it's part of their personality. Kinda like the movie itself! I mentioned that there were very funny moments. Minnie Driver delivers some lines about Justin Bieber that were hilarious. The doves at a certain dinner, hilarious.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious scenes strung together by terrible plot December 30, 2013
Format:DVD
There's a lot of wonderful comedic writing and acting in this movie, like the failed-threesome scene with Anna Faris, and the disinterested marriage counselor played brilliantly by Olivia Colman (you might know her from Peep Show). Unfortunately, the story-telling is a total failure. None of the four leads are particularly sympathetic. Nat (Rose Byrne) takes off her wedding ring when she meets Guy (Simon Baker); after Guy finds out she's married, he says he doesn't care and won't stop pursuing her (because every gal loves a guy who has no respect for commitment); Josh is shown repeatedly to be an insufferable idiot; and Chloe tearfully says "I can't see you anymore!" to Josh, AFTER she summoned him to her apartment.

Beyond the unsympathetic leads, the movie also fails to engage because it simultaneously adopts two very different tones. On one hand is the adolescent sturm-und-drang of guy-meets-girl and they're obviously soulmates because they like the same movies, which is demonstrated in the four leads. And on the other hand is the more worldly and weathered view of relationships consisting of two imperfect people living with each other's imperfections and caring about each other despite those imperfections, embodied in the relationship of Naomi (Minnie Driver) and Hugh (Jason Flemyng), and temporarily adopted by Nat and Josh. Because the movie vacillates between these two viewpoints, it never establishes a cohesive dramatic arc, and so the ending feels very unsatisfactory.

But, honestly, all these story-telling failures would only impact your enjoyment of the movie if you stopped to think about the characterization and the plot.

This looked SO good. I love Rose Byrne and thought this would be along the lines of Four Wedding and a Funeral. Rauncy, unfunny and badly written.

Slightly disappointing. Thought it would be a bit more clever in the humor department, turned out to be cheesy really. Too predictable and the characters weren't endearing.
