Only last night we were having a discussion about Damages the court room drama which just finished it’s final season in the US and after the promise of the first season, it couldnt really live up to it’s potential. As with any claim I make, I usually get challenged and proven wrong but the one take away was that everyone loves Rose Byrne and can watch her do anything.
Especially since she has been tapping into her comedic skills since Get Him To the Greek (she stole that movie) and the much more straight role in the hilarious Bridesmaids.
Although I Give it A Year has all the trappings of a paint by numbers Rom Com, the cast and the people involved sure are making me excited to watch it!
Here are some new clips and press summary from the movie:
I Give It A Year is the hilarious new comedy from Working Title Films, the producers of Love Actually and Bridget Jones’s Diary, and the writer of Borat.
Starting where other romantic comedies finish, I GIVE IT A YEAR lifts the veil on the realities of the first year of marriage, and stars Rose Byrne (Bridesmaids), Rafe Spall (One Day), Anna Faris (The Dictator) and Simon Baker (The Mentalist).
Since they met at a party, ambitious high-flyer Nat (Byrne) and struggling novelist Josh (Spall) have been deliriously happy despite their differences. Josh is a thinker, Nat’s a doer..but the spark between them is undeniable.
Their wedding is a dream come true, but family, friends and even the minister who marries them aren’t convinced that they can last. Josh’s ex-girlfriend, Chloe (Faris), and Nat’s handsome American client Guy (Baker), could offer attractive alternatives.
With their first anniversary approaching, neither wants to be the first to give up, but will they make it?
I Give it a Year is released in cinemas on 8th February 2013.
