“I LOVE YOU, MAN” – And thank you for all the BIG LAUGHS you provided! =
Rating: 5 of 5 stars.

(Per an advance preview:) It was a real PLEASURE, after a slew of comparatively “mild” comedies opening recently, to see this one which provided LOADS of really HEARTY LAUGHS. Peter (wonderfully played by PAUL RUDD) is a man who has always gotten along exceptionally well with women, but who’d found it hard to do the same with most GUYS. Since he’s about to marry his girlfriend (effectively played by RASHIDA JONES), he finds he needs to cultivate some good MALE friends for his wedding party. His gay personal trainer brother (comfortably played by ANDY SAMBERG) tries to help him, but things keep going wrong. He then chances to meet a shockingly-blunt but very-attuned-to-others guy named Sydney (JASON SEGEL, finely controlled compared to his ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’ character, & quite funny), who shares his love of ‘Rush’ and helps Peter open up more to himself & the world around him. It’s pretty riotous as they get to bro-mantically know each other & share experiences including Syd’s efforts to help Peter with his real estate problems. Lots of FUN for those appreciating clever R-rated adult-themed humor.
