Decent watch, probably won't watch again, but can recommend for rom com fans. This is a fine movie, but it is probably one of the most depressing romantic comedies I've ever seen. This is a stacked cast with Emily Blunt and Jason Segal carrying most of the movie, with Chris Pratt and Alison Brie giving a significant support. From the title alone, you can suppose a fair bit of life creating adversity as one person in a relationship often sacrifices for another, but ideally in even terms. Part of the reason this is depressing is that it's a real "slice of life" film. Fortunately there were good comedic actors and writers that worked on this and added a significant amount of humor to this to make it watchable. It does feel like it drags on for quite a while at points, and thinking back on it, the highlight for it was Alison Brie, which is always a bad sign for a movie that a pretty face was one of the more interesting things. There is plenty of life lessons and social commentary built into it, but unless you're a big fan of romantic comedies in general, I'm not sure how much you're going to get out of this.
