This weekend I saw "I Love You, Man", a comedy anchored by Paul Rudd and Jason Segal. Paul Rudd plays a recently engaged man, who has no male friends and thus no one to ask to be his best man. He sets out on a quest to create a posse of groomsmen.
Paul Rudd beautifully walks the line between awkward and endearing as he tries to navigate "dude land" for the first time in his life. Best known for his roles in Clueless, Object of My Affection, 40 Year Old Virgin, Anchorman and Knocked Up, in "I Love You, Man" Rudd proves he belongs as the headliner for the big show.
Jason Segal who plays Marshall on the CBS hit "How I Met Your Mother" co-stars in the film as Paul Rudd's new found best bro. Segal's goofy, off the wall, physical humor gets some of the biggest laughs in the film.
There are several other all stars in this cast: Rashida Jones (Karen on The Office) plays Paul Rudd's fiance. Her best friend is played by Jamie Pressly (My Name is Earl). Paul Rudd's parents are played by Jane Curtin (Third Rock from the Sun) and J.K. Simmons (Juno). His brother is played by the hilarious Andy Samberg (SNL).
The movie is laugh out loud funny and another slam dunk from the Paul Rudd, Jason Segal, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogan, Judd Apatow crew. As we move out of the era of Owen Wilson, Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, and Will Ferrell, we happily usher in this new set of bros.
