New York Daily News

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.”

San Francisco Chronicle

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

As pure comedy, it’s a hoot.

By William Goss
The beats and trappings are all standard-issue, but the gags are funny enough, often enough, to offset such routine proceedings.

The Hollywood Reporter

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

Variety

By 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.

Boston Globe

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

Total Film

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

The Guardian

By 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.

Empire

By 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.
