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.
March 20, 2009
It's a hilarious comedy made even more successful because so much of the satire seems fresh.
March 20, 2009
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.
March 20, 2009
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.

As sweet as it is tart.

Its wit and ingenuous characters prove how far the bar's been raised.
March 20, 2009
Despite the clever premise and several laugh-aloud moments, the film as a whole underwhelms.
March 20, 2009
A fitfully funny comedy that owes much to Judd Apatow.
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'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.
March 19, 2009
Rudd is at his best in the small moments when his character is trying hard to be a "regular guy" even though in his heart he suspects that whatever it takes, it is beyond him.

In a down market for giggles (Miss March? Please!), Paul Rudd and Jason Segel are howlingly funny. They have skills.
