I Loved “I Love You Man.”

On my long flight back from Guam to the bay area,  I watched the film comedy,  “I Love  You Man.”   I laughed and laughed during this movie about a guy named Peter Klaven ( played so well by Paul Rudd) who just got engaged but has no good male friends in his life to select a best man.  All his good friends have been women.


He begins this odyssey tp find a good male friend to develop a “bromance.”  He is assisted by his very macho gay brother played absolutely on target by Andy Samberg.

What you get is a plot that explores manhood and male friendships at their core. It does it with humor but with such honest poignancy that as it hits the funny bone you realize the truth of it all.

Rudd’s character Kraven meets up with his bromance Sydney Fife ( played by Jason Segel), the fun begins with male friendship blooming in full force and some of the best lines of the movies are said. Rudd and Segel have a lot of Chemistry together and play the buddy roles well. They are grown men on the verge of adolescence. Typical guy bonding.

There is so much guy bonding that it even threatens the pending marriage, but the movie is about self discovery and friendship.  It is done with humor and great writing.  I loved “I Love You Man.”
