Jason Segel & Emily Blunt in 'The Five-Year Engagement'It's officially wedding season! And with the success of Bridesmaids last year, the mastermind behind funny blockbusters, producer Judd Apatow, is out to nab the female demo once again with The Five-Year Engagement. This go round, he and Jason Segel (who penned the flick with Nicholas Stoller) have zeroed in not on just men or just women, but a couple: Tom, played by Segel, and Violet, played by Emily Blunt (of The Devil Wears Prada and The Adjustment Bureau fame).
It's a love story, of course, but it's also got enough gross-out comedy to make it palatable for the guys. Because, you know, that's Judd's thing. He wants to settle the war of the sexes with equal-opportunity laughs. And with The Five-Year Engagement, he, Segel, and Stoller succeed ... for the most part.
