A Note Regarding Spoilers

The following FAQ entries may contain spoilers. Only the biggest ones (if any) will be covered with spoiler tags. Spoiler tags have been used sparingly in order to make the page more readable.

For detailed information about the amounts and types of (a) sex and nudity, (b) violence and gore, (c) profanity, (d) alcohol, drugs, and smoking, and (e) frightening and intense scenes in this movie, consult the IMDb Parents Guide for this movie. The Parents Guide for The Five-Year Engagement can be found here.

No. The screenplay was written by American screenwriters Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller.

Nicholas Stoller's wife is from Ann Arbor, so they chose this as their central location for the story.

What is the first song?

"Jackie Wilson Said" by Kevin Rowland and Dexy's Midnight Runners . The complete list of songs heard in the movie can be found here with their corresponding scene descriptions.

The US Blu-ray and DVD releases also contain the 7 minutes longer Unrated Version. In the UK, this has so far only been stated for the upcoming Blu-ray, the DVD promos do not mentioned the extensions so far. Of course, if a comedy that has already been rated R gets an Unrated Version it always seems a bit suspicious. Quite often these new movie cuts only contain additional footage that had originally been left out for a reason (mostly to make the movie tighter). This is also the case here, but it has to be mentioned that at least it was not used as a marketing trick and that the releases contain both of the versions anyway. The only thing worth mentioning about the new footage is that two scenes introduce a new character, Violet's ex Gideon, which makes her look a bit different. The scene with the muppet voices at the end was extended as well, the ones that liked this bit will certainly approve. A detailed comparison between both versions with pictures can be found here.
