DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - This is a sometimes raunchy, sometimes sweet, sometimes crude comedy aimed at young adults, especially males. Fans of stars Paul Rudd and Jason Segel will find plenty to enjoy. Those sensitive to gross-out gags should steer clear. The crude and suggestive humor make the film inappropriate for children.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average There's no question that I Love You, Man is a cut above a lot of the movies out there masquerading as comedies, and it offers something many of them fail to provide: material that is genuinely worth laughing about.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good 'I Love You, Man' is, above all, just plain funny. It's funny with some dumb physical humor, yes, and some gross-out jokes apparently necessary to all buddy movies, but also funny in observations, dialogue, physical behavior and Sydney Fife's observations as a people-watcher.

USA Today Full Review
Good I Love You, Man's light-hearted exploration of male bonding provides substantial fodder for humor, heightened by the inspired casting of two of the industry's most appealing comic actors.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 155 moviegoers:
GREAT REVIEWS! Both males and females, loved "I Love You Man." Adult males are the only age group who's reviews aren't great, they are however very good. By far, most really enjoyed this movie but there are a fair number who were disappointed. This may be partly due to the crude and sexual nature of the comedy.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
After proposing to his girlfriend, Zooey Rice (Rashida Jones), Peter Klaven (Paul Rudd), a successful young L.A. real estate agent, realizes that, unlike his fiancée, who immediately calls her closest friends to share the news, he has no close buds – in fact, he has no male friends at all. After years of being a "girlfriend guy” focused on romantic relationships, Peter learns that his lack of male friendship worries Zooey, so he embarks on a hurried quest to make a male friend who can serve as Best Man at his wedding. Under the guidance of his brother, Robbie (Andy Samberg), a personal trainer who is gay and seems to know a thing or two about guys, Peter embarks on a series of disastrous "mandates” and, quite by accident, crosses paths with Sydney Fife (Jason Segel), a charismatic bachelor who cruises open-houses for free food and lonely divorcées. Peter is intrigued with Sydney, and the two men embark on a friendship that teaches Peter something he's never experienced, the true meaning of male bonding, but also threatens his relationship with Zooey, forcing him to make some difficult choices.
