There is such a ramshackle charm to this 2012 romantic comedy that I think the term "Apatovian" seems appropriate to describe it since it most definitely feels like the same general creative team led by producer Judd Apatow that guided Knocked Up, Funny People, and Bridesmaids. All the ingredients of the successful Apatovian formula are here - likeable principal characters facing the unpredictability of life's events, the familiar challenges of maintaining relationships in a morass of doubt and temptation, the unexpected detours into graphic humor, the pool of scene-stealing comic actors, the slightly overlong running time (this one clocks in at 124 minutes). Directed by Nicholas Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall), this particular one focuses on a young couple a year into their relationship - Tom Solomon, a talented sous-chef at a trendy San Francisco restaurant, and Violet Barnes, a psychology graduate student hoping to win a postdoctoral fellowship at Berkeley.

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.

Can't believe this movie only averages 3 stars. I'm not much of a "rom-com" guy but my wife & I both enjoyed this film that has really good performances by all involved and found it to be LOL funny all the way through. I did feel it was a little longer than it probably could have been but that's my only nitpick. Jason Siegel, Emily Blunt and the lesser known supporting actors (Dakota Johnson, Kevin Hart among them) were all great in this. Highly recommended if you want to enjoy a good "date movie".

I enjoyed this movie. If you enjoyed "Forgetting Sarah Marshall", give this one a try. It's not quite as good but definitely entertaining.

This movie was great and fun to watch with my girlfriend. I bought it for her for Christmas and she loved that I did. It's a funny movie but it does have its moments where it can actually be quite sad. I wouldn't say it's a full on romantic comedy but I guess it coud be in that category. It's a good couple movie. The user is recommended as well!

This is an interesting hit and miss romantic comedy aka "chick flick." Tom (Jason Segel) is a chef in San Francisco who is engaged to Violet (Emily Blunt) a Brit. They meet at a costume New Year Eves party and don't worry if you miss it, they replay it (definite chick flick giveaway).

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."

While this may not be the funniest movie ever, it made me laugh when most "comedy" movies don't. I watched it with my girlfriend (who loved it) and I found it very charming. I was a big fan of Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Jason Segel did a great job yet again, writing a romantic comedy that is believable and funniest when portraying awkward and true to life situations. Also, this movie has a great supporting cast, Alison Brie (Community) and Chris Pratt (Moneyball) do a great job of taking stage when Jason Segel and Emily Blunt aren't the center of attention. My only complaint is that Kevin Hart was way under used in this movie, but I like that he was in it at all which was a surprise to me since they failed to mention him in any commercials they played for this movie. If you like funny, charming movies that are worth watching more than once, you should get this. Great visuals as to be expected with such a new movie, and has some pretty good sepcial features.

I had low expectations when I started this movie, due to the low ratings it was receiving, but after watching it, I have to say it exceeded expectations! 4 of 5 stars, which is a good movie! Worth watching at least once! Good overall performances by all the actors, you'll love the characters and the story right away. I found myself laughing throughout the movie, this movie is better than a lot of comedies of today that have a drab love storyline of fall in love, problem arises, then the characters make things better. The story line in this movie is great and I found myself relating to a lot of the happenings and actual things couples go through if you ever have been in a relationship. I highly recommend, give it a shot, you'll be surprised that you actually enjoyed this one!
