    Plot: This film centres on a guy (Rudd) about to be married, whose fiancee (Rashida Jones) is calling all her friends to be in the wedding. Realising he has no friends, he starts to go on man-dates to find a best man; and finds one in Segel.

    THE VERDICT:

    Green Tea says:

    WARNING FOR SPOILER! A man without any best male buddies. How would you see this situation? A womanizer? Not really, is just that Peter has been living around without any male friends for years until the day he is going to get married where he realize this problem is getting really serious.



    Peter Klaven (Paul Rudd) is going to get marry with his girlfriend Zooey Rice (Rashida Jones). However, something troubles him as he is unable to have a good friendship with any of the male pals and buddies around him. He is beginning to get a headache to search for a best man. That until he meets Sidney Fife (Jason Segel), a doubtous investor whom they met in a open house sales function. The rest is a journey for a lasting friendship and relationship.

    I Love You Man started off as a promising movie with special and unique theme to tackle on friendship and buddies. The movie kick started as if it is another gayness movie in the making. As the movie progresses, the idealism of gayness quickly evaporate and considering the background of the characters been straight, the story evolve more around struggle to maintain an established relationship.

    However, the story is trully passable and the humour isn't that pleasable. It is somehow another form of lame jokes just like we seen in the past involvement of Peter Rudd and Jason Segel.

    Again, the story in this comedy is predictable and may reminiscence certain other relationship comedies available before. Nevertheless, the story is yet again does not match any of those of Judd Apatow comedic movies.

    Acting wise, the solid performance by both our funny men, Jason Segel as you sees him in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" and Peter Rudd in many previous features before. Both men are a tough sale here because we do not really know them. But here is a chance for us to really know them. Besides, I think their performances are great and full of hilarious elements.

    If you find yourself in despair for a something to laugh, try this movie. It worths a while but please remember in the end of the day, there is nothing much to sparkle about. Gayness and homosexuality have broaden its prospect of story range. The movie does not in anyhow promote it so much but those senses and auras are just around.
