I Love You, Man (2009)

()

Comedy, Romance |

I Love You, Man is a American romantic comedy film written and directed by John Hamburg, based on a script by Larry Levin. The film stars Paul Rudd as a friendless man looking for a best man for his upcoming wedding. However, his new best friend is straining his relationship with his bride.

The film was released theatrically in North America on March 20, 2009, to mostly positive reviews. It opened second at the box office next to Knowing, and was a modest hit, grossing $92 million on a $40 million budget. This movie marks the third collaboration between Jason Segel and Paul Rudd, who had worked together on Knocked Up and Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

Peter Klaven, a Los Angeles real estate agent, proposes to his girlfriend Zooey Rice, and she accepts. Peter seems to not have any close friends to share the good news with, only family and mainly female acquaintances. After overhearing Zooey’s friends voicing their concerns over his lack of close male friends, Peter decides that he needs to find male friends in order to have a best man for the upcoming wedding.

Peter turns to his gay younger brother, Robbie, for advice on dealing with men. He makes a series of overtures toward various men, including Barry, the persistently hot-headed husband of Zooey’s friend Denise who doesn’t really like Peter all that much to begin with, a problem that only escalates when Peter inadvertently projectile-vomits on Barry after winning a beer-drinking contest.
