This is a trailer for The Five-Year Engagement starring Emily Blunt and Jason Segel as a couple who get engaged. They get into a few roadblocks to actually getting married including a detour to Michigan. The trailer made me laugh hard. I like Emily Blunt in comedic roles. I am hoping this will actually be a funny film, and not one of those that just has the funny parts in the trailer. The film also stars Chris Pratt, Alison Brie, Rhys Ifans, Kevin Hart, Mindy Kaling, Chris Parnell, Jim Piddock, David Paymer, Mimi Kennedy, Brian Posehn, and Jacki Weaver. Jason Segel co-wrote the screenplay with director Nicholas Stoller.
“Beginning where most romantic comedies end, this film looks at what happens when an engaged couple keeps getting tripped up on the long walk down the aisle.”
The Five-Year Engagement is in theatres April 27, 2012.
