I Give It a Year (2013)

Director: Dan Mazer

Stars: Rose Byrne, Rafe Spall, Alex Macqueen, Minnie Driver, Jason Flemyng, Anna Faris, Simon Baker

After a quick courtship, two lovers hastily decide to tie the knot. As their first year of marriage unfolds, temptation and incompatibility put their relationship in jeopardy. Everyone is wondering and betting, if they will make it through their first year of marriage.

This is an interesting movie. It is not really funny or humorous at all. You have a chuckle here and there, but nothing that will bring down the house. There are some scenes in the movie where it appears like they are really trying to be uncomfortably funny in several scenes. It mostly came off stupid and annoying.

The acting in the movie was done well. The story was the part that was just kind of there. It is about seeing if a married couple will last their first year of marriage. That is kind of a messed up story, but I guess it worked out somehow. It was just not a story that I was a big fan of. The movie needed to be more serious or completely funny, not trying to fit both styles in the movie. It just did not work for me.

This is a movie that is worth watching once, but it is not really worth watching over again. It is not a 
rewatcher at all. I recommend watching it to see how you feel about the movie. You might have liked it more than me. Enjoy.
