Consensus: I Love You, Man makes the most of its simple premise due to the heartfelt and hilarious performances of Paul Rudd and Jason Segel.

Tom Huddlestone
Time Out

The concept is solid, applying rusty romcom clichés to a tale of new-found masculine buddydom. But the plot is scatty.

The picture is worth catching for the delicate and toxic nuances of Rudd's performance.

I Love You, Man is the second movie this year -- He's Just Not That Into You being the first -- with a popular catchphrase for its title. This is one of the film's few distinctions.

Though the script doesn't always rise to their level, I Love You, Man is more than worth seeing for the chemistry between the shambling Segel and the endlessly inventive Rudd.

Lyles' Movie Files

One of the better recent 'buddy comedies' and one if you're in the mood to laugh, you definitely won't regret showing a little love.

It's a thin premise, and I Love You, Man features the usual quota of jokes involving masturbation, projectile vomiting and flatulence. But is it worth it? Thanks to Rudd and Segel (and some terrific cameos), totes magotes.

It's a hilarious comedy made even more successful because so much of the satire seems fresh.

Ali Gray

Rudd and Segel share genuine chemistry and the early scenes in which their bromance blossoms are tinged with recognisable humour; the dumb nicknames; the inexplicable use of silly voices; the embarrassingly out-dated 'man slang'.

I Love You, Man is an often surprising, mostly hilarious and offbeat Hollywood comedy. It's expertly performed by a wall to wall cast of A list comedians… More

Hilarious. Meet-the-Parents-like movie.
