People who are looking for something to make them laugh won’t be disappointed with the hilarious comedy I Love You, Man. Realtor Peter Klaven (Paul Rudd) finally puts the question to his sweet, charming girl friend Zooey (Rashida Jones) to marry him. While Zooey is enlisting her long list of girl friends in her bridal party, Peter realizes he has no real guy friends that he can ask to be his best man. To help him out, his brother Robby (Andy Samberg) who is a gay fitness instructor begins setting him up with a series of man dates with disastrous results. (Maybe a better name besides Man Dates would have helped) Then Paul hosts an open house for a prime piece of real estate – Lou Ferrigno’s home – Paul meets a candid open investor named Sydney Fife (Jason Segel). Even though Paul believes in keeping his private live private, he mentions a couple things to Sydney who tells them to Zooey and her friends at a party. From that point on Paul and Zooey’s relationship begins to suffer. Eventually Zooey makes Paul choose between her and Sydney. This is one of those films that makes you laugh from the beginning until the end. The chemistry between Rudd and Segel makes this movie and the outstanding supporting cast doesn’t hurt either. (Even Lou Ferrigno sounded good.) Nowadays, most comedies like this have bad language (which it does), crude humor (dog poo on the sidewalk and projectile vomiting) and jokes about sex (I’m not even going to go there). Actually it’s not too raunchy but I’m still not going to take my grandparents, parents and probably not even my dog. This film isn’t without its flaws. There’s no real conflict in the story, the plot is shallow and some scenes are just tasteless. Trust me a dog pooping on the sidewalk not once, not twice, but 3 times isn’t funny – especially if you’re blind and you step in it or stick your cane in it like a shish-kabob. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie and I’m giving it a B rating.

This movie has been given a R rating by the MPAA

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
