Centered in Tom (Jason Segel), a rising sous-chef in a noted fine-dining restaurant in San Fransisco and his fiancée Violet (Emily Blunt), a post-doctoral psychology student, both wanting to have a perfect and unforgettable wedding. They planned everything right, until Violet got his dream job as a researcher in Michigan, which forced them to move out to Michigan, leaving Tom's rising career and their wedding-dream behind. The storyline was pretty common and predictable, though some twists were added. The plot was slow but meaningful; it was enjoyably boring. I would say that the script was pretty genius; it was brutally honest, defining all the dilemmas Tom and Violet had. What caught my mind was the donut metaphor : whether you want to wait for the non-exist or just go for whatever comes forward? And oh! How I love the fast-zippy ending. Brilliant!
Good on job on the well-crafted talents' pick. Emily Blunt (who shone in Devil Wears Prada as Miranda Priestly's size-zero former assistant) and Jason Segel played Tom and Kate really well; I believe their chemistry, I adore their oddness, I envy their love towards each other. Also for Chris Pratt and Alison Brie who stole every scenes they were in; I love them as sister, best man, and the best as a couple, the unique and soon-grown-mature-and-responsible parents. Not to mention Rhys Ifans who portrayed Winton beautifully; the sexy-suave co-worker slash rivalry crush.
What's not to love? I personally engaged to this movie. I can't say it's a great movie or what; all I can say is that I love it. Do I recommend you to watch it? Yes, dearly.
