Nah, neither of us are big romantic comedy people and I think it would just fan the flames too much for me! Sealed

I do want to see What To Expect though, because it looks pretty funny and babies are so far off that it seems safe!

nope but I think it got really crappy reviews and just doesn’t appeal to me!

As soon as I read the topic of this I thought, “I’d rather die”… ! I can guarantee it would bring up more than a few awkward moments/conversations and like batgirl311 I think it would just ‘fan the flames’ and I’d probably pull out something like ‘THATLL BE US WONT IT!!!’ – hahaha

Uh, no… definitely not. Mainly because neither the SO nor I are romantic comedy fans. Truth be told, it’s not something I would even want to watch with my girlfriends. But definitely go see it if you want to – you can subtly see if your SO is up for seeing it by suggesting going to the movies and reading out the choices to gauge his reaction.

I want to go! I’ve actually heard good reviews. Plus maybe it’ll make him realize there is never the “right” time to get engaged, get married, etc. Life is complicated, you can’t put things off.

I saw it last night and it was funny and cute!  SO actually kinda liked the movie too.   It doesn’t send a message of impatient waiting or anything so I wouldn’t worry about that part of it.  Just about how life gets in the way of things and that things will never be perfect but you work together to make it the best you can.  Hope anyone else who sees it likes it too!

I think I’ll catch that on Netflix/HBO/TBS when it gets out… not a theater movie for me. I also would never see it with Boyfriend or Best Friend for a number of reasons, including the “waiting” aspect…

SO & I saw it last night because I’d had a bad week and was REALLY looking forward to this one. Let me tell you…it was the WORST movie I’ve seen in the past 5 years. Just really, really  terrible. All the funny parts were in the trailers, but the majority of the movie was just incredibly depressing and the couple treated one another like crap. Big let down! 🙁

When my SO and I were at the theatres last I saw the preview of “The Five Year Engagement” and I laughed so hard! I said right there and then that when it comes out I have to see it!

When it came out in theatres I told my SO that it’s out and he knew that I want to go see it so we made plans to do so next week. He watches all movies with me, he enjoys spending time together. I got him to watch Desperate Housevifes with me every week and the Sex in the CIty movie, so it’s only natural for us to see this one together too, regardless of the title or what it’s about. I think the preview is hilarious tho 🙂

I’m going to see it Thursday with one of my friends… who’s been waiting about 5 years for a proposal (very long, drawn out and disfunctional relationship— but I still try to be supportive!)  I’m interested to see her reaction..

I say no because I’ve had to swear-off talking about anything engagement/wedding related for now.  I’ve gotten a little obsessed….. SO doesn’t want to hear anymore. He thinks I’ve already planned it all out. *sigh*

No, we usually don’t go to the movies unless it’s something that really is worth spending the extra money at the theater. Also I wouldn’t make my SO go to a chick flick with me- since that’s what it seems like. I save those for the few times a week I have spare time (once they’re up online).
