March 20, 2009
Despite the clever premise and several laugh-aloud moments, the film as a whole underwhelms.
March 19, 2009
This excruciating film is such an idiotic fantasy, it's little more than a cartoon. Apparently Hamburg formed his impression of "real men" from beer commercials.
March 19, 2009
Smarter than it looks from its ubiquitous trailer, but not smart enough to be a fully satisfying adult comedy.
March 19, 2009
I Love You, Man could have been so much more than the series of missed opportunities -- not to mention the predictable humor -- it turned out to be.
March 19, 2009
The crude humor about masturbation, dog feces and projectile vomiting is disappointingly familiar, as are the character archetypes.
March 19, 2009
Charmless and abysmally unfunny from one end to the next, condescension and desperation seeping from its filmic pores. At this early date in March, it is the year's first lock for December's annual worst list.
March 19, 2009
I Love You, Man makes sure to give audiences exactly what they're expecting, but I couldn't shake the sense that the whole thing felt compulsory.
March 19, 2009
This fluffball is as toothless as an octogenarian lion.
March 18, 2009
From its snarky title on down, everything about I Love You, Man ignores the complexities of male identity.
March 18, 2009
It spends a full 104 minutes on an idea so artificial that it could have been handled in a sitcom in 22--and a mediocre sitcom at that.
March 17, 2009
A drearily tame learning-and-growing homosocial comedy.
March 16, 2009
Although Rudd and Segel are charming guys, and it can be a kick to watch them throw improvised riffs at one another, that's not sufficient justification for an entire movie.
March 16, 2009
Predictable, far from hilarious, with director John Hamburg's coming across as second-tier Judd Apatow
March 16, 2009
A pal from hell premarital grossout kept afloat by meek makeover man Rudd and brazenly wacko Segel. But those prenuptial same sex chum assignments, public poop pooch pride, and a cozy nook filled with masturbatory chachkas, feel less bonded.
March 16, 2009
Pic never surmounts a deeply lame central premise that makes most of the action seem fraudulent and thoroughly unnecessary.
