REVIEW: I LOVE YOU MAN
When you see this movie you will know what I'm talking about.
I love this movie, man. Hands down the best comedy of the
year no question ask. Welcome Paul Rudd to lead actor
status. First Steve Carrel then Steve Rogan, later Jason
Segal now Paul Rudd. Finally a movie that fits well for Paul
as a lead actor. This time he is not a basterd nor a jerk.
In "I Love You Man", he is sweet, shy, honest, loving
husband to be, who discovers that he has no male friend
close enough to serve as his Best Man. In his search
for a same sex friend Peter (Paul Rudd) meets Sydney Fife
(Jason Segal) a single, fun-loving and charismatic man with
whom Peter instantly bonds.
The movie has
classic one liners that will be heard from now on. No
doubt about it. It has
very Apatowtowish to it. Even though some of the Apatow brad
pack wasn’t there, for the most part the cast was great.
Thomas Lennon from Comedy's Central Reno
911 was hilarious with his crush on Paul's Rudd
character. He is not much in it, but when he does is funny.
Jon Favraue the director of "Iron Man" was good playing the
role of Barry, a very easy to hate character which doesn’t like Paul and even does him. Jon's wife and
Rudd) fiancée are friends, so he has no choice to hang out
with him However the only way Barry (Jon Favraue) goes is by asking his hot
wife Jamie Presley to do special favor for him. He really gets was coming
to him though.
Casting Andy Sandberg to play
Paul's gay brother was the icing on the cake, at least for
me. I feel that he could be the next
great thing. Even though I felt the same way about Dane cook
and we all know where that went. Lets hope that this movie
help him cast in more leading role. A SNL cast member that bring the
goods. I was surprise that Bill Hader wasn’t in the movie he
would of been funny as one of Peter's dates. Paul Rudd and
Jason Segal make the movie much more fun to watch. They both
play of each other to perfection. The movie can relate to
some guys. Lets face it some guys could find it difficult to
have a guy friend when your time its all on your wife.
the concept of men dates, that’s funny! Watching Paul Rudd go through uncomfortable situation,
reminded me of Ben Stiller. I’m a big Ben Stiller's fan, but
Paul Rudd pulls it of in this movie.
going back to my opening words. I have to say that I have
gone to the movies almost my whole entire life and when this
particular moment happen "give back" the whole movie theater
started laughing really loud. This laugh was different
though classic different. It lasted more than 20 seconds. It
was totally unexpected. This movie is up there with "Knock
Up" and "The 40 Year Old Virgin". Classic! Welcome
Paul Rudd your turn has arrive.
