    A smart farce that would make Hugh Grant and his fans proud. show more

    Shockingly, the kind of cringe-inducing material upon which Mr. Mazer has built a career as a writer for Sacha Baron Cohen ("Bruno," "Borat," "Da Ali G Show") doesn't work when rendered by types who could have been cast in "Notting Hill" (someone even makes a Hugh Grant joke). It's rather close to excruciating. show more

    I Give It a Year has all the outrageous, embarrassment-based moments you’d expect from one of the creators of “Borat.” Indeed this film has one of the best charades gags ever. But there’s plenty of sweetness and charm, too. You root for both bride and groom, and cheer when they finally say, “I don’t.” show more

    An above-average number of laugh-out-loud set pieces compensate for the resulting wobbly narrative. show more

    A raucously funny comic romance that's deaf and blind to the blithe spirit of romantic comedy. show more

    The beats and trappings are all standard-issue, but the gags are funny enough, often enough, to offset such routine proceedings. show more

    As pure comedy, it’s a hoot. show more

    Though Mazer’s ambition is laudable, he has not yet integrated the comedy of manners into the comedy of no manners. show more

    Much of the film's attempted laughs come from the comedy-of-discomfort school, with an endless array of situations that milk awkwardness to a degree that makes these scenes far more unpleasant than humorous to watch. show more

    The cast is terrific, and there are a couple of sequences that made me laugh out loud, but the movie as a whole is baffling. show more
