  • Drags and sags at 124 minutes. Luckily, the movie never runs on sitcom empty. How could it, with a terrific cast. show more

  • Sometime around what I guessed to be the one-hour mark in The Five-Year Engagement, I checked my watch and honestly thought the battery had given out. Five years doesn't begin to tell the interminable tale. show more
