I Love You, Man


Bromance, I hate that word, but it kind of is fitting with this film. Peter Klaven (Paul Rudd) has just gotten engaged and he realises he does not have any male friends. Queue Peter going on 'dates' with several men to try and find a Best Man for the wedding. Along the way he meets Sydney Fife (Jason Segel), the two get along and become friends, which of course causes complications.

I love Paul Rudd, he is a great actor and he is easy on the eyes. He does however play the same character all the time, and yes whilst he does do it so well it gets very repetitive. Peter Klaven is no different, he does what he can with the role but it is a very bland character. I think all the personality went into the Sydney Fife character, he sure is a blast.

The girlfriend/fiancee Zooey (Rashida Jones)
is likable at times but then she comes off as annoying. Not sure it really works, because of the relationship she holds with her friends. The supporting characters however do really work well, and the actors do a good job playing them. Jon Favreau plays the prick so well, watch out for him, as well as The Hulk himself Lou Ferrigno playing well himself.

I mean I don't think you can really go wrong with this film, it isn't laugh out loud funny but it is fun all the same. It is a nice ride and of course it has a nice satisfying ending. Not bad for an evening in, good stuff.
