Filmmaker Dan Mazer had a very specific idea for his debut as a feature film director, I Give It A Year. He had already been enjoying something of an iconoclastic career, working with Sacha Baron Cohen as a writer and producer on ‘Da Ali G Show', Ali G Indahouse, Borat and Bruno, while also either producing or executive producing ‘The 11 O'Clock Show', ‘Dog Bites Man' and . “But I wanted to do something that was a bit more mainstream and yet which still had the ability to be edgy and a bit shocking,” he says.

Producer Kris Thykier says that I Give It A Year picks up where most romantic comedies end. “This story has a real modernity to it, and it is a comedy that happens to be based around relationships rather than being something in the vein of where has ended up now. This goes back to being a straight comedy that happens to be about relationships.

Good comedy comes from good characters, notes Mazer, and it is the characters of Josh and Nat who stand at the center of the movie. To bring Josh to life on screen, Mazer chose English actor Rafe Spall. Australian actress Rose Byrne stars as Nat and says that her character and Josh start out very much in love. They enter their marriage with the best intentions.

During the course of the movie both Josh and Nat meet people to whom they are more suited, if only they could break up.
