I Give it a Year quick movie review
I Give it a Year features every possible mistake one could make in a farce. The pace is all wrong, the scenes go on too long and almost every moment somehow leads to character/defines a relationship and yet at the same time still feels like filler. It’s really incredible, what they’ve done here. And how many wacky comic relief characters can you pack into one movie? There are at least three in this flick. (The best man is the most annoying, by far, but they’re all over exposed and annoying in their own way. At the end of the movie, a character says to him, "I never have to see you again," and the audience thinks, "Hooray! Neither do I!" and then he comes back during the credits, just so he can be unfunny one more time. Again, incredible.)
This is the sort of movie I usually rail on and on about, but I just can’t. Every scene has the same problems, but the biggest problem is this movie is BORING. It’s 97 minutes, but it feels like an eternity. (Oh, there’s a joke: "I gave it 97 minutes – I should have gave it 5!")
I Give it a Year is on Netflix for your viewing displeasure. Let’s just say it’s a 3 out of 10 so I can stop thinking about it and hopefully purge it from my brain.
