By Ed Uyeshima HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on May 16, 2012
Format: DVD
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.

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.

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".

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!

In some ways this is like your typical comedy, with those jokes and scenes that will be funny to reference with anyone else that has seen the movie(but will be impossible to explain to those that haven't...though you will try). But there is also that true to life aspect of it, in which things don't always go perfectly in life, and people will be able to relate. It also gets a little dark for awhile. I will admit that when I first saw it I was a little worried that i might not turn back up. Then it would have fallen into that category of movies that seems to want to rub your face in the fact that life sucks. I would say it is not bad to acknowledge that life is not always perfect, but being that people go to the movies to escape reality to a degree, it is not a good message
But this is a good movie for couples to watch, and Segal is hilarious in it. It is funny enough to watch more than once. And considering that it does not have a cast full of comedic superstars, I would say it does quite well.

Not a GREAT movie. It's just okay. I can't see my self wanting to watch it again, ever. I think they dragged it out a bit more than they needed to, and harped way too much on that costume party. Princess Diana and a crazy pink bunny suit didn't quite elicit the warm "when we first met" feelings they were supposed to. Meh.

This movie was pretty fun altogether, although I wasn't really prepared for these large sections of the movie to be a bit more serious, a little bit of a bummer, maybe hit too close to home with relationship drama for some people. If you want a nonstop laugh fest, you may find yourself disappointed. If you want a bit more depth to a movie and to still get some pretty awkward laughs in there, this will be right up your alley.
