It's the last weekend before the summer blockbuster season starts, and it's a week where R-rated movies dominate.
The best of the bunch is "The Five-Year Engagement," a hilariously raunchy and surprisingly sweet romantic comedy by the "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" team of co-writers Nicholas Stoller (who directed) and Jason Segel (who stars). Segel and Emily Blunt play Tom and Violet, a couple who put off their engagement because of career changes when she gets a post-doctorate post in Michigan, and he gives up his job as a San Francisco chef to join her. The laughs are plentiful, the characters are quite warm and real, and the supporting cast includes some very funny people (including "Community's" Alison Brie, "The Office's" Mindy Kaling, and comics Kevin Hart and Brian Posehn).
On a local level, you owe it to yourself to check out Utah writer-director Richard Dutcher's "Falling," his 2008 drama that gets a re-release at the Broadway Centre Cinemas. Dutcher plays an L.A. videographer facing a moral dilemma when he captures footage of a murder in progress. The movie looks seriously at faith, religion and ethics, in a tense, riveting and bloody story.
