  • Summary: In I Love You, Man, a comedy from John Hamburg, Peter Klaven is a successful real estate agent who, upon getting engaged to the woman of his dreams, Zooey, discovers, to his dismay and chagrin, that he has no male friend close enough to serve as his Best Man. Peter immediately sets out to rectify the situation, embarking on a series of bizarre and awkward "man-dates," before meeting Sydney Fife, a charming, opinionated man with whom he instantly bonds. But the closer the two men get, the more Peter's relationship with Zooey suffers, ultimately forcing him to choose between his fiancee and his new found "bro," in a story that comically explores what it truly means to be a "friend."

  1. It's a hilarious comedy made even more successful because so much of the satire seems fresh.
  2. Reviewed by: Staff (Not credited)
    This movie was absolutely hilarious, and proved that dating might be easy, but making friends is much harder.
  3. Reviewed by: Robert Wilonsky
    The movie delivers an absolutely complete, fully realized, delightfully novel redo of the hoariest of forms: the meet-cute, love-at-first-sight, break-up-and-make-up, racing-to-the-altar slapstick weepy that's been a staple of cinema since the invention of cinema.
  4. Reviewed by: Ty Burr
    The movie stakes out a whole new arena - male social performance anxiety - and ruthlessly mines it for comic embarrassment.
  5. The central love story, platonic though it may be, is entirely between the men. Their connection - and I’m determined to avoid the word “bromance” - saves this film from becoming just another Apatowian wanna-be.
  6. 63
    Despite the clever premise and several laugh-aloud moments, the film as a whole underwhelms.

    And like most women in bromance comedies, Jones does exactly what she's supposed to do by doing almost nothing.

    This movie was very funny and light-hearted. Paul Rudd and Jason Segel work very well together and create an excellent bromance. The way they meet is very funny, and Paul Rudd's girlfriend pushing him to go out makes for a very funny scene. All of the scenes where the characters are just hanging out and having fun are very light-hearted and make you feel good. I also very much appreciated how the movie truly focused on the bromance, and not too much on Rudd's relationship. The movie seemed very real, and there were no boring parts. Excellent, I recommend viewing. Expand

    I was blown away with how fantastic this movie is, I remember seeing the trailers and thinking it looked awful, but I'm a huge Paul Rudd fan and when I heard he was in this I figured I would give it a shot, and I;m glad I did, it's hilarious, Paul Rudd, Jason Segel and everyone else in this movie gave phenomenal performances, go out and watch this as fast as you can.

    Jason Segal and Paul Rudd make this movie period. Without them this would be your average run of the mill Hollywood stinker, instead they make it a memorable laugh fest. Expand

    I enjoy Jason Segal's work all the time and this film is no exception. He works very well with Paul Rudd to produce a great comedy about friendship more than romance. Rashida Jones is ok but I really felt as if she was overshadowed by pretty much every other character. Andy Samberg is hilarious even though normally I find him to be stupid. Unfortunately for this film, it will forever be overshadowed by The Hangover. Expand

    This movie sucks balls.

    Here's the problem: the film features a surprisingly awesome fandom for the band Rush's f*cking righteous 2112
    album. The dude's studio has MULTIPLE POSTERS for 2112, him and his gay friend JAM OUT with some Rush songs, and Rush is ACTUALLY IN the f*cking movie! In the flesh!

    You might say "Well that's a pretty good f*cking setup to bring the thunder!" and during my watching of this film, I would have agreed, BUT

    Nothing from 2112 appears in this film. Not a single note. I Love You, Man gave me massive 2112 blue balls. It raised my hopes and then gave me a generic romantic comedy featuring multiple dog shats. Now I love comedies and I love Rush but apparently the two were never meant to meet.

    Better luck next time, aholes.
