I Love You, Man

Paul Rudd stars alongside Jason Segel (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) in this romantic-comedy from the writer of Zoolander and Meet the Parents (a good CV, to be sure).

Rudd plays Peter, a friendless guy about to get married without a best man. To rectify the situation he goes on a series of awkward man-dates and winds up bonding with the raucous Sydney (Segel). But their extreme friendship puts a strain on Peter's relationship with his fiancée. Also stars Jon Favreau, JK Simmons and Rashida Jones.

I Love You, Man / Reviews

Variety

Variety

A Judd Apatow clone that's one of the few recent R-rated raunch fests the ubiquitous auteur of larky crudeness actually had nothing to do with, I Love You, Man cranks out the kind of lowball humor that makes you gag on your own laughs.

There’s continuous chuckles rather than a barrel of belly-laughs in this warm winner. A sweet, slightly shambling buddy-movie that will please those who prefer gags to gagging.

It doesn't have the bonkers stupidity of Forgetting Sarah Marshall or the downright awkwardness of Knocked Up, but I Love You, Man is a simple, funny story told well with a great supporting cast. Best of all, it has a lower cheese factor than most chick flicks.

Above all, just plain funny. It's funny with some dumb physical humor, yes, and some gross-out jokes apparently necessary to all buddy movies, but also funny in observations, dialogue, physical behavior and Sydney Fife's observations as a people-watcher.

Strong comic cast saves this bromance rom-com.

Could have taken a more relevant, insightful and even funnier cut at a very rich topic. But the filmmakers didn't; they went with dog poo instead.

It's a rare comedy that actually grows funnier on reflection. It benefits enormously from the talents of the two stars.

An amusing scenario gets a big boost from winning performances all round -- which lift it well above other bride vs. buddy 'triangle' japes like, say, "You, Me And Dupree."
