Only Jason Segel Would Eat A 'Taxi Burger' In Michigan

I don't know about everyone else, but we here at Hip In Detroit think it's totally awesome how many big movies are coming out of Michigan lately. When some of them were here filming, we ventured downtown to see the sets and what was going on and it just made us anxious to see all the movies! Unfortunately, not as many are filming here lately, but we still have the actual movies to look forward to!

Today, one of these movies is coming out. The Five-Year Engagement stars Emily Blunt and Jason Segel, who also co-wrote it. It actually looks pretty damn funny. It's about how a couple, Tom (Segel) and Violet (Blunt), get engaged and think everything is going to go perfectly. Things start to go wrong when Violet gets offered her dream job at the University of Michigan, so they move to Michigan, which means postponing the wedding. In Michigan, Tom gets a job at Zingerman's Deli! They run into comical problems along the way and keep postponing the date.

This looks like a pretty good comedy, for girls AND guys! If you don't believe me, check out the trailer:
I think everyone here in Michigan can relate to that whole falling into a snow pile that turns out to be a fire hydrant thing even if we didn't get much of that this past winter. 

I've always loved Jason Segel, mainly because of his portrayal of Marshall on How I Met Your Mother and for his love of The Muppets (even if I am scared to watch the movie because I'm worried it will suck). But he just keeps getting better. The other night he raved about his time filming in Michigan on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, as well as a charming anecdote about dropping a delicious burger all over a taxi floor in Ann Arbor, then eating it. We are talking taxis that drive drunk, puking college kids home. Enjoy:

The Five Year Engagement will be playing all major theatres starting today, April 27. Check your local listings and let us know what you thought of it!
