Tiffany’s Spoiler Movie Review: “I Love You, Man”
Johnny Marks picked the 2009 comedy, "I love You, Man" starring Paul Rudd and Jason Segel for me to watch this week. I have to say, it was pretty funny and was an easy watch but for those of you who do not know what the movie is about, let me give you a little background before telling you what I thought.
Peter Klaven's world revolves around his real estate work and Zooey, his soon-to-be fiancée. After he pops the question, she calls her best friends and they go into wedding planning mode. Problem? Well, Peter has no male friends which means he has no best man. Zooey decides to help find him a best man but this results in more awkward moments than in any positive results. However, at an open house Peter's hosting, he meets Sydney who seems like a cool dude. They end up meeting for drinks and it seems like Peter has officially made a male friend and his "best man" crisis could be averted. Except this friendship starts to threaten his relationship with his fiance.
It is an interesting plot exploring what happens when you have to choose between friends or your relationship which we have all been through. I even thought that it was almost parallel to women having friendships with men and being just friends... can this happen with these two as well? I loved the comedy and the plot and the fact it was an easy watch.
