Consensus: It's nowhere near as inventive as its reverse rom-com premise might suggest, but I Give It a Year is disarmingly frank -- and often quite funny.

Leba Hertz
San Francisco Chronicle

"I Give It a Year" is a smart farce that would make Hugh Grant and his fans proud.

Boston Globe

The tonal clash is jarring, and Mazer doesn't help matters by erring on the side of blandness.

It's funny, yes, but also depressing, like watching the mating habits of mollusks.

Mazer's previous onscreen experience is undeniably obvious. No penis is left unfilmed, no crude scene prevented from going on far too long.

Washington Post

A wonderfully rubbish movie, one of those movies that shows as all the best parts in the trailer!

Not bad. A few laughs. Just the digital photo frame scene was worth watching for. Josh and Nat aren't all that convincing as a couple, but I guess… More

A charming cast, mostly solid jokes and an ending that is as anti-romance as you could get (and was also pretty sweet).
