“I like the fact that it’s not a routinely formulaic comedy; there are serious undercurrents that give it some substance.”

REELZCHANNEL’s Leonard Maltin, host of “Maltin on Movies” and author of the New York Times bestseller, “Leonard Maltin’s 2012 Movie Guide,” reviews “The Five-Year Engagement,” one of a number of films coming throughout September to Movies on Demand on cable.

“Colorful, supporting characters played by Chris Platt and Alison Brie brighten this leisurely-paced, unusual, but entertaining film,” said Maltin. “I like the fact that it’s not a routinely formulaic comedy; there are serious undercurrents that give it some substance.”
