[Segel's] performance here is loose and confident and very attractive. His star is rising.

Rudd ... is perfectly cast -- no actor this side of Hugh Grant is more comfortable getting flustered.

In the coarse but compassionate style patented by Judd Apatow, the film is funny about the uncertain etiquette of incipient male friendships, but it drags a bit.
April 17, 2009
The concept is solid, applying rusty romcom clichés to a tale of new-found masculine buddydom. But the plot is scatty.

Ultimately, I Love You, Man doesn't take us anywhere we haven't been before, but there is no shortage of laughs for those who decide to come along for the ride.

There are one or two decent lines, but after the initial setup, things flag and all I felt like confessing was my feelings of manly indifference to the pair of them.

I Love You, Man is the second movie this year -- He's Just Not That Into You being the first -- with a popular catchphrase for its title. This is one of the film's few distinctions.

It's a thin premise, and I Love You, Man features the usual quota of jokes involving masturbation, projectile vomiting and flatulence. But is it worth it? Thanks to Rudd and Segel (and some terrific cameos), totes magotes.

The picture is worth catching for the delicate and toxic nuances of Rudd's performance.

Though the script doesn't always rise to their level, I Love You, Man is more than worth seeing for the chemistry between the shambling Segel and the endlessly inventive Rudd.

It's a hilarious comedy made even more successful because so much of the satire seems fresh.

The marvelous thing about John Hamburg's new comedy, I Love You, Man, is that rather than conforming to fit into some preexisting trend, it recognizes and even exalts in the reality that close male friendships can be a source of confusion and awkwardness.
March 20, 2009
Luckily, the cast is so winning, that the occasional sexism can be ignored, and the off-the-wall pop culture name-checks (Lou Ferrigno, as a guest star?) enjoyed.

I Love You, Man, which is like listening to a 105-minute conversation be tween Ross and Joey on Friends, looks like it might be a Judd Apatow movie in the same way Brett Favre, in a Jets uniform, looked like he might still know how to play quarterback.

In almost every major detail and minor plot hiccup, the sweet, vulgar, hilariously awkward I Love You, Man follows Ye Olde Formulae for standard romantic comedies.

March 20, 2009
The comedy I Love You, Man marks the overdue emergence of Paul Rudd as a star.
