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.

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.

This is a great movie for fans of Simon Baker (star of The Mentalist TV series). He makes the move worth watching. Otherwise the humor is mostly silly and sometimes raunchy. I especially liked the DVD extra showing the outtakes and bloopers. The blooper scenes with the doves are hilarious, as is the one showing Simon's character trying to make mad passionate love but getting caught on the door knob.

I don't understand why this movie only has 3 stars--it almost made me not watch it when I looked it up on Amazon. I had seen a trailer for it on an airplane & the trailer made it seem like something that was really, really funny. I hate watching movies on airplanes so I waited until one night when I was home & my husband and i wanted a comedy [comedies are so hard to pull off]. I was worried that all the best bits of this movie were only in the trailer--not so!! We laughed from start to finish with this movie [ok, maybe the end was a bit odd/abrupt] but I don't care b/c the whole thing was so funny. Definitely rent/download. Loved this movie.

What’s it about?

Finally! A movie that starts where most rom-coms leave off. We begin with a wedding between Rose Byrne and Rafe Spall and look at the pressures of their first year of marriage including exes, jobs, and temptations.

What did I think?

British comedies on the whole walk the line between clever and cringing very well which is why this movie is such a let down. With such a wonderful premise, one would have hoped for more wit and less cringe but most of this movie will leave you squirming rather than laughing. It IS funny in its way, features an amazing cast and the final act probably does justify it but it’s a question of whether you would take the time to get to the end really.

From the team that brought you Bridget Jones' Diary arrives another Brit rom-com with all the things we've seen before in Four Weddings, Love Actually and every one movie in this genre - and it's surprisingly funny. Aussie leads are playing the Brit and American destined to fall in love with one stuck in a spluttering fast-tracked marriage after a drunken night out. It's all highly predictable but made enjoyable by a half dozen or so truly funny scenes that make the film more like a series of sketches than a coherent or series plot.

The acting is fine for the script and it's refreshing not to have Hugh Grant stumbling around muttering "bugger, bugger" while plowing his hair mop out of the way. The one thing that does bug me is that the message seems to be that attractive, successful types are destined to find each other and everyone else is basically an ugly, socially-awkward loser - but I might be reading too much into the theme. Ultimately, it's worth hitting the play button for the comedic moments and not worrying too much. If it hadn't been for the well-trodden ground, it could be a four-star film but as it stands the British stereotypes are somewhat thin and ultimately it's not the sort of film you'd watch twice.
