★☆☆☆☆ Ever since the Working Title stable made a decision to fund acclaimed, lucrative comedies that were as romantic as they were inherently British, the desire to replicate such successes has rendered the UK's grasp of the genre somewhat wanting. However, Dan Mazer's timely I Give It a Year (2013) looks to reinstate our nation's taste for domestically tinged romantic comedies by offering - like Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason (2004) before it - the antidote to such stale proceedings by effectively exploring the subsequent travails of the happily ever after idyll. The film attempts to give answers to the question: what happens after you say "I do"?
Rafe Spall (in his first leading role) and Rose Byrne play Josh and Nat respectively, a couple who, after an all too brief seven-month romance - signified by an all too brief one minute opening montage - upgrade their whirlwind relationship and tie the knot. »

The third film, in which Renée Zellweger would reprise the title role, was reportedly stalled after Hugh Grant expressed dissatisfaction with the script, and Colin Firth has suggested there could be "a long wait" for another film.
"There is a joy of doing those movies that keeps hope alive," Firth said. "And the story is going in an interesting direction. I just wouldn't say that the movie is imminent."
Working Title head Eric Fellner has said that a third film will not necessarily be made, explaining: "We'll only do it if we can crack it creatively, so maybe we will, maybe we won't."

A quadruple threat of Academy Award winners are getting together to show The Wolfpack how it’s done in Last Vegas. Michael Douglas is about to get married, therefor his childhood friends are going to help him “party like it’s 1959″. WIth buddies Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro and Kevin Kline, this is surely worth a watch for the camaraderie of such seasoned professionals in a plot that seems to echo The Hangover.
It certainly looks fun, but how much will it rely on the old people doing young people tropes? Hopefully nobody is going to bust into a rap. Jon Turteltaub, the man behind 3 Ninjas, Cool Runnings, and the National Treasure films, directs from a script by Adam Brooks (Definitely Maybe, Bridget Jones: The Edge Of Reason, Wimbledon) and Dan Fogelman (Cars, Bolt, Crazy Stupid Love).
Last Vegas will be released in the Us on 1st November and in the UK on 20th December. »

Fans of the "Bridget Jones" series should be prepared for a very long wait for part three. After being confirmed in 2011, not a lot has been said about the movie. In early 2012 it was reported that the script was undergoing changes with hopes to start before the end of the year.
Well, 2012 ended and the movie never went into production. When asked by the Chicago Sun-Times about the status of the movie April 23, star Colin Firth doesn't make it sound like it's going to happen anytime soon. "Unfortunately, it might be a bit of a long wait," he says. "I wouldn't say it's completely dead in the water," he adds, "but the way it's going you might be seeing Bridget Jones' granddaughter's story being told by the time we get there."
Based on a book of the same name, 2001's "Bridget Jones's Diary" grossed $281 million worldwide, with the 2004 sequel, »

"Unfortunately, it might be a bit of a long wait. I wouldn't say that it's completely dead in the water, but the way it's going you might be seeing Bridget Jones' granddaughter's story being told by the time we get there. ... There is a joy of doing those movies that keeps hope alive. And the story is going in an interesting direction. I just wouldn't say that the movie is imminent."
The project was first announced back in 2011, when Working Title Films gave the green light for production to move ahead. We haven't heard much regarding the project since November 2011, when »
