YMMV / The Five-Year Engagement

  • 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.
