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.

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.

Rudd and Segal's onscreen chemistry is palpable, and combined with some fantastic bit-players, the film delivers easy, if somewhat puerile laughs.

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.

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

Hilarious. Meet-the-Parents-like movie.
