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

Leba Hertz, San Francisco Chronicle, 2013-09-05

 

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

Peter Keough, Boston Globe, 2013-08-15

 

As pure comedy, it's a hoot.

Farran Smith Nehme, New York Post, 2013-08-09

 

"I Give It a Year" holds a special place in film history. It's the only romantic comedy where you root for the main couple to get a divorce.

Jordan Hoffman, New York Daily News, 2013-08-08

 

This is an inspired idea for a rom-com, and Mazer makes it pay off with a climactic speech that's at once a parody of the genre and utterly, bizarrely heartfelt.

Mike D'Angelo, AV Club, 2013-08-08

 

Not just diverting but surprisingly thoughtful, even if we're never given too much reason to care about Nat and Josh.

Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice, 2013-08-07

 

Manages to have its wedding cake and spit on it too.

William Goss, Film.com, 2013-03-12

 

It winds up rather inelegantly shoehorning salty humor and abrasive sentiment into a genre template, but an above-average number of laugh-out-loud set-pieces compensate for the resulting wobbly narrative.

Megan Lehmann, Hollywood Reporter, 2013-02-25

 

Even if the emotional mathematics don't quite add up, enough diversion is provided by pic's broader comic setpieces to paper over the cracks.

Leslie Felperin, Variety, 2013-01-29

 

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

Linda Barnard, Toronto Star, 2013-08-23

 

In addition to some trite set pieces, writer-director Dan Mazer serves up nothing more than conspicuous cynicism masquerading as comedy.

Stephanie Merry, Washington Post, 2013-08-15

 

Can a comedy be too funny for its own good?

Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald, 2013-08-15

 

A smutty script and a passel of objectionable characters form an imperfect rom-com union - one that will, with any luck, fade from the mind long before its title suggests.

Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, 2013-08-08

 

Whatever attachment we might form for the characters or their fates gets lost in thickets of farce and barrages of one-liners.

Ella Taylor, NPR, 2013-08-08

 

It's rather close to excruciating.

John Anderson, Wall Street Journal, 2013-08-08

 

By turns thoughtful, awkward and lacking in chemistry, the movie ultimately sticks to the rom-com template without making the outcome matter.

Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times, 2013-08-08

 

Nothing works: not the haphazard stabs at conjuring a sweet-and-sour comic tone, not the reliance on people saying horribly inappropriate things in lieu of actual jokes, and not the one-note characters ...

David Fear, Time Out New York, 2013-08-06
