Paul Rudd has never been better. Here he plays Peter Klaven, a socially awkward dweeb who can’t exit a man-to-man situation without stumbling over his own words in an effort to be ‘down’. He’s such a great character, obviously summoned from the real-life experiences of Rudd and writer-director John Hamburg, and instantly likeable.
While Rudd practices his geek chic, Forgetting Sarah Marshall’s Jason Segel lumbers into the film as a laid-back dude called Sydney, proud owner of a man cave and a straight-up sense of honesty. How do we feel about him? Is he friendly or just a bit creepy? The answer is a bit of both, and this grey area is explored on the safe but steady route to the ending as Sydney and Peter rock out at concerts, eat corn-dogs and stroll along Venice Beach.
A solid supporting cast bring plenty of fodder for Peter’s social embarrassment. It’s all very amiable and cheerful - a light, bright comedy that’s amusing rather than hilarious, lifted by the winning combination of Rudd and Segel. I Love You, Man doesn’t reinvent the wheel, but it takes a simple concept and does it well.

Watched this on a plane, and like 'Sore ribs', laughed out loud and couldn't stop. Watch this film!
There are some particular scenes that are absoloutley hilarious, am thinking about watching it again
A vey Funny movie
Not all comedy has to make you pee your pants, I like'd the light-heartedness of it and the way Peter was brought out of his shell. Def worth a watch.
Just saw it in the States, i thoroughly reccommend!
