I Love You, Man

I have a secret love for the romantic comedy. They are usually not great movies, but the formula is very tight. My favorite part is when the couple breaks up right before the climax.

The fun thing about 'I Love You, Man' was that it subverts the formula by treating male friendship as something to be attained instead of something that can be taken for granted. It follows a very formulaic arc but the fact that its men makes it feel fresh.

Paul Rudd and Jasan Segal are both hilarious. I'm a big fan of them both. I hope this movie does good box office because I'd like to see them more in leading roles.

I do think the 'bro talk' felt a little too hip. It got annoying sometimes. Although it was always funny to see Rudd stumble through it.

good flick.
