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.
