  • Jordan Hoffman

    I Give It a Year has all the outrageous, embarrassment-based moments you’d expect from one of the creators of “Borat.” Indeed this film has one of the best charades gags ever. But there’s plenty of sweetness and charm, too. You root for both bride and groom, and cheer when they finally say, “I don’t.”

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Alan Scherstuhl

    The funny stuff outweighs the cock-ups, and supporting performances from Stephen Merchant and Minnie Driver kick the movie toward something grander.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Leba Hertz

    A smart farce that would make Hugh Grant and his fans proud.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Farran Smith Nehme

    As pure comedy, it’s a hoot.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Mike D'Angelo

    That Mazer succeeds in playing this for laughs — however sporadic — rather than as a kitchen-sink downer is an achievement in itself.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • William Goss

    The beats and trappings are all standard-issue, but the gags are funny enough, often enough, to offset such routine proceedings. Full Review
  • Leslie Felperin

    If the emotional mathematics don’t quite add up, enough diversion is provided by pic’s broader comic setpieces to paper over the cracks.

    Variety Full Review
  • Megan Lehmann

    An above-average number of laugh-out-loud set pieces compensate for the resulting wobbly narrative.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Peter Keough

    Though Mazer’s ambition is laudable, he has not yet integrated the comedy of manners into the comedy of no manners.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Sheri Linden

    Instead of subversion, Mazer's first outing as a feature director offers only a tweak of genre conventions. He does achieve an above-average share of laugh-out-loud moments — welcome compensation in a romp that grows more forced with every turn.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Josh Winning

    In a film with obvious ambition, though, it’s a shame that it resorts to formula so quickly.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Olly Richards

    The jokes are strong and delivered by a very talented cast, but the heart isn’t there. It’s easy to laugh, but hard to care.

  • Robbie Collin

    In the end it amounts to not much, but in the moment I laughed a lot.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    The result is funny and plausible, with a fair bit of newly modish Bridesmaidsy bad taste, though I kept getting the sense that the romcom template meant Mazer couldn't really let rip with pure comedy pessimism and cynicism in the way he might have liked.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Sheila O'Malley

    The cast is terrific, and there are a couple of sequences that made me laugh out loud, but the movie as a whole is baffling. Full Review
  • Andrew Schenker

    Much of the film's attempted laughs come from the comedy-of-discomfort school, with an endless array of situations that milk awkwardness to a degree that makes these scenes far more unpleasant than humorous to watch.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Noel Murray

    The default middle ground between true-to-life and wacky in I Give It A Year turns out to be a place of dreary artificiality.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Ella Taylor

    A raucously funny comic romance that's deaf and blind to the blithe spirit of romantic comedy.

    NPR Full Review
  • Stephanie Merry

    In addition to some trite set pieces, writer-director Dan Mazer serves up nothing more than conspicuous cynicism masquerading as comedy.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Jeannette Catsoulis

    This painfully awkward product fails on almost every level.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Drew Taylor

    I Give It a Year groans on, with unmemorable scene after unmemorable scene, each one more contingent on coincidence and happenstance than by the actual, gear-filled mechanics of drama or comedy.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • David Fear

    Such manic fumblings and desperate crassness might be more forgivable were any of it actually, y’know, funny, but other than Olivia Colman’s occasional cameos as a raging therapist, the laughs have been granted a leave of absence.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • John Anderson

    Shockingly, the kind of cringe-inducing material upon which Mr. Mazer has built a career as a writer for Sacha Baron Cohen ("Bruno," "Borat," "Da Ali G Show") doesn't work when rendered by types who could have been cast in "Notting Hill" (someone even makes a Hugh Grant joke). It's rather close to excruciating.
