This week's reviewed movie is:
The Five-Year Engagement




Gene the Barber

Snick the Sidekick

Gordie the Barber

The Five-Year Engagement really kept my focus and attention with genuine emotions and a believable chemistry relationship running throughout the film.

It had a fresh new twist showing how the resentment gradually builds up between the two and starts tearing down -- ruining their intially perfect dream.

This film is smart, well acted, and real fun to watch.

It even tugs at the heartstrings.

It's a feel good movie that you'll leave quite happy. 

Unlike most romantic comedies, this one is not set up just to set up gags.

There is actual chemistry between the two stars.

It has some nice heartfelt moments and an actual storyline.

A little tighter editing might have helped, but it still remains a pleasant and well above average comedy. 

This romantic comedy has a tangled unpredictable foundation that works for it.

The film only pretends to be about a couple who have their wedding plans delayed year after year.

The movie is a pleasing mix of messy life circumstances.

The stars drift along, love, fight disengage from their promise, and do pillow-talk therapy.
