Universal Studios has announced The Five-Year Engagement, starring Jason Segel and Emily Blunt, for Blu-Ray in August.
Director Nicholas Stoller re-teams with Jason Segel for yet another raunchy romantic comedy, this time involving the bright and gorgeous Emily Blunt as well as the hilarious Chris Pratt and Alison Brie.
The Five-Year Engagement isn’t on par with Forgetting Sarah Marshall, but it does nearly triumph Get Him to the Greek in terms of consistent comedy from its leads. The only real problem Five-Year suffers is pacing, specifically in the third act. The film slouches and loses steam towards the end, but it does stay afloat thanks to Blunt and Segel and their uncanny ability to crack jokes left and right.
Our very own Kristal Cooper had this to say about the film in her review:
The film may be a cut above your average romantic comedy, but it still suffers from the dreaded Apatow curse of not having an editor prudent enough to keep the film focused on the main story.
The film will be presented in 1080p with a 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track. The Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack will come with the following bonus material:
