CinemaVisitor Erik80 - Finally a decent rom-com in cinemas even if it is way too long (124 mins). It has good laughs and some romance without the cheesy bits.

Dan O'Neill65 - The tone may be a disjointed, the laughs may not be constant, and the run-time may be about 30 minutes too long, but The Five-Year Engagement still entertains enough with itís very funny laughs, and itís charming leads, that are backed by an amazing supporting cast that steals the scenes almost every chance they get.
