YMMV / The Five-Year Engagement

  • Broken Base: Viewers seem to be split on Alison Brie's English accent as Suzie. A lot of people criticised it, finding it completely unrealistic. Others however were more favourable to it. It's worth noting that she specifically attempted to imitate Emily Blunt's natural voice - and Emily herself says that her voice is all over the place from her years of working in America. So Suzie's Ooh, Me Accent's Slipping might be deliberate, to show that the sisters have lived in America for a while.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: A toddler causing her aunt to be shot is tragic. When said aunt gets shot in the knee with an arrow from a crossbow that was left on the table - while the toddler excitedly says "I'm Pocahontas!" - is hilarious.
  • Ending Fatigue: One criticism of the film was that it just ran too long before Violet and Tom ultimately do get married.
  • Heartwarming Moments: Violet and Tom's eventual wedding at the end of five years, after having put things on hold and endured all manner of setbacks.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
  • Narm Charm: Violet and Suzie having an argument where Suzie's daughter has them speak in Cookie Monster and Elmo's voice respectively. It's about as cringey as you'd expect, and that's why it's funny.
