A Richard Curtis-ian rom-com with a misanthropic twist, I Give it a Year focuses on a pair of newlyweds, Rafe Spall and Rose Byrne, who aren't sure whether to stay together. The problem is that we aren't sure, either.

More of a sketch compilation than a narrative, the film has some inspired set pieces, but it never makes us believe in the central relationship, which means that we never care whether that relationship succeeds or fails.
