The supporting cast are all great too, particularly Jon Favreau, Lou Ferrigno and Jaime Pressley (and the newspaper boss from the Spiderman movies).
There are enough laugh out loud moments in this film to make it worth watching more than once. Mind you, going up to the big fella at the cinema kiosk and saying "I love you, man" was an experience I'll not want to repeat.
Obviously, like any film/book/artwork, we all have individual tastes which means nothing will satisfy everyone but this film is sufficiently different that it is likely to entertain those who normally don't like this genre of movie.
The plot, which is the main source of originality, centres on Peter Klaven (played by Paul Rudd) who is a soon-to-be married 20/30-something house realtor (UK = an estate agent !) that soon realises he will have no, or at least very few, male friends of his own to attend his wedding (he has always concentrated on relationships with women); as a result he goes on a quest to gain some genuine male friendships. However, it soon becomes obvious that his previous lack of real male bonding has left him a little naive and cumbersome in how he socialises with men......
This film is a '15' certificate, as there is quite a lot of adult-orientated humour and bad language, but it is not in my opinion rude in an overtly offensive manner - just 'naughty' rude if you see what I mean ! Having said that, as the subjects include such things as oral sex and male masturbation those easily offended may want to go elsewhere...
There is also plenty of other material in here to amuse most people and the real bonus is the way the simple (normally natural, but not to the lead character !) matters of relationships are played out and observed.Read more ›
"I Love You, Man" stars Paul Rudd and Jason Segel. Rudd plays Peter Klaven, a friendless chap who has just become engaged. Segel (of Forgetting Sarah Marshall fame; not to be confused with Seth Rogen of Knocked Up) plays Sydney Fife, the extra-marital "love" interest.
This is very much a comedy - primarily of the lowest common denominator sort, it has to be said - and a jolly funny one. But it touches on a genuine issue, I think, which is what could possibly make this a bit of a trend-setter in terms of films for men. Chick flicks flourished as a genre because us burds can identify with them, and I imagine lots of men will see themselves in this. You see, it deals with the dynamic of men who don't have male friends. While a woman with no friends is considered odd (it's unfair, but it's true), it's far more normal, and unspoken with fellas: it doesn't make them defective, and it's just seen as one of those things. Rudd's Klaven is that man, and when he realises he has no best man for his wedding, he has to go in search.
What are the rules for that search? How do you go about finding a friend when you're a grown man? (Incidentally, this film may persuade you not to look online.) Enter Sydney Fife... a charismatic "bloke's bloke" who refuses to settle down. Meanwhile, he has an entirely different set of problems.Read more ›
Segel has become a firm favourite since I watched Forgetting Sarah Marshall and rediscovered the brilliant but short lived Freaks and Geeks, I've never seen How I Met Your Mother but based on his performance in I Love You Man, I'm definitely looking forward to seeing it.
Paul Rudd really shines as a man who has just proposed to his girlfriend and realises that he doesn't actually have any friends, through the help of his gay brother he is set up on a number of man dates. The bulk of the film is then about the developing friendship between Rudd and Segel, and the strain this blossoming friendship has on Rudd and his fiancée played by Rashida Jones.
Many people have called this is a bromantic comedy, and not only is it hilarious but it manages to be touching in places. There's great support from John Favreau, JK Simmons, Andy Samberg, Jaime Pressley, Lou Ferrigno and the ever increasingly funny Jo Lo Truglio. It's really well directed by John Hamburg who previously directed Along Came Polly, another very quotable movie with a fantastic comedic turn from Phillip Seymour Hoffman.
I highly recommend this if you're a fan of Segel, Rudd, or have enjoyed most of the Judd Apatow films. Teriffic film and the DVD extras are pretty good, including a very amusing commentary from Hamburg, Segel and Rudd, a making of feature, a gag reel and extended/ deleted scenes.
