 Being a big fan of the romantic comedy genre and such a huge fan of Forgetting Sarah Marshall you’d think it would help to have both Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller on board. Unfortunately The Five Year Engagement is a film that tugs at the heart strings, isn’t afraid to cross lines to get a chuckle, and manages to drag out the drama but all at the expense of spreading itself too thin. Do I want to melt into the romantic angle, laugh at the stupidity of college humor, or am I going to get tied up in the dramatic aspect of the film? I wish it would have been possible to take in the entire film with all these themes in a well balanced mix but it’s all uneven and it’s a reflection in the actors inability to find their motivation. So how did it look on Blu-ray?
