I Loved "I Love You, Man"
Buddy movie. Bromance. Formulaic. Apatow genre movie (though Apatow had nothing to do with this one). Despite all these things, this movie is great. Way better than all the other Apatow movies I've seen (40 Year Old Virgin, Superbad, Knocked Up, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Anchorman). Three things in particular:
1. I liked how this movie wasn't all about getting laid.
2. I liked that it underscored how hard it is to make friends.
3. I liked Paul Rudd's character's social anxiety. Hilarious and, for me, totally relatable.
