We’ve just been sent this brilliant first clip from new British comedy I Give it a Year. The movie has a wonderful cast and when you see this clip, you’ll really get a sense of the tone they’re trying to set with it. The film stars Anna Faris, Rose Byrne, Simon Baker, Rafe Spall, Stephen Merchant, Craig Izzard, Minnie Driver, Olivia Colman, Anna Skellern and Jason Flemyng, the latter stealing the show in this first clip which I’ve embedded below. Dan Mazer directs what must have been a wonderfully funny movie to make.
I Give It A Year is the hilarious new comedy from Working Title Films, the producers of Notting Hill and Bridget Jones’s Diary, and the writer of Borat.
Starting where other romantic comedies finish, I GIVE IT A YEAR lifts the veil on the realities of the first year of marriage, and stars Rose Byrne (Bridesmaids), Rafe Spall (One Day), Anna Faris (The Dictator) and Simon Baker (The Mentalist).
Since they met at a party, ambitious high-flyer Nat (Byrne) and struggling novelist Josh (Spall) have been deliriously happy despite their differences. Josh is a thinker, Nat’s a doer..but the spark between them is undeniable.
Their wedding is a dream come true, but family, friends and even the minister who marries them aren’t convinced that they can last. Josh’s ex-girlfriend, Chloe (Faris), and Nat’s handsome American client Guy (Baker), could offer attractive alternatives.
With their first anniversary approaching, neither wants to be the first to give up, but will they make it?
The clip below is simply brilliant showing how a simple game of charades can go from a happy fun occasion to pretty much the opposite. Love the casting for this film and I cannot wait to see it.
There’s a few choice words in this clip so if you’re watching at work, you may need some headphones! I Give it a Year is released in the UK 8th February. If you missed the two trailers for it, you can see them both here.
