Rose Byrne’s turn as a controlling, OTT friend in Bridesmaids has opened comedy doors for the actress, and in her next wedding-themed movie she’s stepping up as the lead. In I Give It a Year, Nat (Byrne) and Josh (Rafe Spall) are a couple navigating their first year of marriage, and it isn’t easy — they’ve got family and friends saying they won’t make it, and they visit a counsellor around the nine-months mark. When Josh’s ex-girlfriend Chloe (Anna Faris) and Nat’s handsome new client Guy (Simon Baker) come into the picture, the situation gets, as you can imagine, a little more complicated.
It’s a UK comedy so it does have a British sense of humour, as well as the usual supporting characters who are either hilarious or verging on the annoying side. Byrne and Spall have some snappy one-liners while Faris and Baker seem to offer little more than eye candy, but that’s just judging from this preview. Check out the trailer after the jump.
