* InformedJudaism: Tom is Jewish, but very secular. Amusingly, when Tom and Violet try to get married [[spoiler: the first time]], they pick the rabbi of the local Chabad to officiate, lying about Violet being Jewish, who takes their rehearsal dinner as a chance to encourage them to raise their children Jewish [[ArabIsraeliConflict SO THEY CAN SAVE ISRAEL FROM THE THREAT OF THE ARAB!]] (In real life the Chabad movement is indeed opposed to any sort of land concession to the Palestinians, although they aren't as...fervent in this belief as the rabbi is)

* HardOnSoftScience: While the film generally tries to portray Violet's academic work as a serious endeavor, a lot of laughs are taken at her field's expense. When the senior staff are trying to brainstorm projects for a research grant (and haze Violet), they all throw out outlandish ideas that seem absurd, but are convincing enough to Violet. And apparently all of Doug's thesis involve masturbation.

''The Five-Year Engagement'' follows the engagement of Tom (Creator/JasonSegel) and Violet (Creator/EmilyBlunt). Shortly after becoming engaged, Violet is offered a post-doctoral position at the UsefulNotes/UniversityOfMichigan, and she and Tom leave their lives in UsefulNotes/SanFrancisco so that she can take the job. Their relocation is the first of many obstacles standing in the way of Tom and Violet's "perfect" wedding.
