It’s been awhile since we got a truly funny, delectably biting British rom-com shipped over America way. Where is this generation’s Four Weddings and A Funeral? Wither a new Bridget Jones’s Diary? We’d even accept the merry tears of Love, Actually at this point. And, apparently, the team over at Working Title Films is well aware of that, as the first trailer for their I Give It A Year proudly announces that it’s from the same team as both Bridget Jones and Love, Actually within its first ten seconds. Giving the people what they want!
From writer and director (and Ali G alum) Dan Mazer, I Give It A Year follows the hilariously rocky trials and travails of Rose Byrne and Rafe Spall during their characters’ first year of marriage. They have…a lot of problems. Give the trailer for I Give It A Year a look after the break, and start placing your bets on just how long this marriage will last.
I Give It A Year opens in the UK on February 8, 2013. We’ll keep you posted on when it’s set to hit our shores. [Yahoo! Movies UK, via Pajiba]
