I recently saw this movie while traveling on an airplane – all the other available movies I had already seen. (Wow, I know I watch a lot of movies!)
It had a pretty unique story. It did follow the basic formula for your overall comedy movie – it had it’s ups and downs, and came out positive in the end.
To me, it was ok. Some of the acting and the lines felt forced – I didn’t feel a sense of “punch” with this movie.
I think it could have probably been done better and much more funnier. There were some serious parts of the movie which I think they could have gone more into detail. One such issue was about people living in the past and not moving on with their lives while everyone else does. I feel that’s a great issue to touch upon.
I did have a few laughs while watching the movie especially as they made it seem like Paul Rudd and Jason Segal were actually a “couple”. I thought it was funny how they depicted Paul Rudd – like your typical metrosexual. (If you watch Sex and the City, Paul Rudd seems like a guy Charlotte was dating - the pastry chef who lived in Chelsea.
If you are in the mood for a comedy and there’s nothing really out there you want to watch, I’d save this one for your Netflix queue, or borrow from a friend or at the library. I wouldn’t spend the $5 to rent this at your local Blockbuster store. It’s got its funny moments, but to me it’s not a movie you absolutely have to see.
p.s. And, yes – they do say “I Love You, Man” in the movie. I was anticipating this the whole time I was watching – they didn’t let me down there!
Happy movie watching!
