Film: It's springtime again -- season of love, hope, budding bromance. That's no typo, gang -- bromance is the new romance. It's all about the dude love, the hetero bonding of two guys, the (platonic) man-on-man action. A ''bro'' is more than just a poker buddy, he's the wing-man who's always ready to ''suit up'' and will be there for you when the chips are down. I Love You, Man pays homage to this strong yet often unspoken, and completely not-gay, connection between guys.
Poor Peter (Paul Rudd) has been flying solo for his entire life. He's that sensitive, sweet guy who is more likely to curl up on the couch with his girlfriend and watch The Devil Wears Prada (his choice) than go out carousing with the guys (mainly because he wasn't invited). So now that he's met his dream woman (The Office's Rashida Jones), who is going to stand up for him at his wedding?
'I Love You Man'
Peter calls in the troops, from his mother (Jane Curtin) to his gay brother (Andy Samberg), and ends up on a series of miserable -- but hysterical -- blind man-dates. Just as all hope is lost, he meets someone when he least expects it. Sydney (Peter Segel) is your typical slacker, but when he and Peter bond over free food and farting, it's a match made in heaven. Through the awkward first date and the first stroll along the beach, the bromance grows until it climaxes in a musical montage. It's enough to make you swoon.
