The movie opens with Tom popping the question on the bayside terrace of his restaurant and Violet responding affirmatively without hesitation. Thanks to the stars' easy charms, the characters are obviously quite compatible and in love. What happens from that point forward is less about formula and more about just life. Berkeley turns Violet down, but she eventually wins a fellowship in a two-year program at Michigan.Read more ›
In a role reversal, he gives up his career so she can do her doctorate studies at the University of Michigan for a couple of years. They put off getting married while Michigan turns Tom into Grizzly Adams. Meanwhile Susan (Alison Brie) who is Violet's sister gets married to the somewhat crude Alex (Chris Pratt) a friend and co-worker of Tom.
The humor moves from clever to awkward to bad. There is a doughnut metaphor that starts in the middle of the film, that has moments of cleverness. The extreme overreaction of the main characters due to minor difficulties is perhaps the downfall of the film. While the film needed to create conflict, it did so in an inane manner that was neither funny nor realistic. Emily Blunt gives us a good performance.
Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex, male rear nudity (Jason Segel...another chick flick giveaway) 3 1/2 stars on the girl's film scale. Pale in comparison to "Bridesmaids."
