I LOVE YOU, MAN
7MATE, Friday, 9.30pm, MA15+ ( 2009)
This crash course in male bonding from director John Hamburg was surely inspired by the burgeoning “bromance” sub- genre made famous by Judd Apatow’s crass but cute comedies. Paul Rudd ( pictured) plays Peter, a repressed real estate agent who gets engaged to his girlfriend Zooey ( Rashida Jones), but finds he doesn’t have someone to be his best man. And so begins his search for a male mate, at first aided by his gay brother ( Andy Samberg), until he meets Sydney ( Jason Segel), a loathsome layabout who just might be the man of his dreams. Forgettable fun that boldly turns the buddy comedy on its head.
