Is ‘The Five-Year Engagement’ a Real Social Experiment?

Five Year Engagement
Universal Pictures

There’s an amusingly reflexive scene in ‘The Five-Year Engagement,’ in which two social psychologists are watching, through a one-way mirror, a romantic couple dramatically breaking up while sitting in an observation room, unaware they’re not alone. The mirror is like the movie screen, and its framing of the couple becomes the framing of the shot, so the psychologist characters and the audience become entwined, mutually silent voyeurs gazing upon an otherwise private moment.

But there is a difference between us as viewers. The psychologists, within their onscreen world, are looking at a “real” situation, while we are still just looking at made-up characters saying made-up things. I appreciate the film’s attempt at being meta for a minute, though, because I’ve always found the modern American comedy to be akin to a social experiment, one that doesn’t bother with real people and their unpredictable ways.

Weekend Box Office Report: Everyone in the World is Seeing ‘The Avengers’ Before You

Avengers International Box Office
Marvel

Normally, the Weekend Box Office Report tends to shy away from covering the international box office. However, we're making an exception this week, mainly because the domestic box office was hopelessly anemic and 'The Avengers' opened everywhere not called the United States and took in an absolutely absurd amount of cash. Between 39 territories, Marvel's hotly anticipated Superhero Team-Up Extravaganza earned an astonishing $178.4 million, shattering opening records across the globe.

‘The Five-Year Engagement’ Review

Five-Year Engagement
Universal Pictures

Y'know how popular comedies often get an "Extended Cut" on DVD? 'The Five-Year Engagement' skipped a step and released its extended cut straight to theaters. It's 124 minutes long, and at least 30 minutes too long. There's a good movie in here, maybe even a great one. But it's buried beneath an awful lot of shoulda-been-deleted scenes.
