I Love You, Man

I Love You, Man
Originally uploaded by Mrs. JiJi Bean
The last time I saw I Love You, Man was with my younger brother, he loved it as did I. I didn’t find anything surprising in this as the movie is really aimed at the male gender, and I don’t typically like the majority of “chick flicks” out there, but I Love You, Man is right up my alley. This time I took my best friend Stefanie to the film; I was pretty sure that she’d like it but there is just enough testosterone in the film that I wasn’t sure she’d like it as much as I did.

The good news? We saw the film Friday, today is Sunday and she’s still quoting it. In fact, as we were about to play Wii golf she looked at me and said “This is my nightmare!”

I really loved I Love You, Man. While it hasn’t creped into Tropic Thunder territory for me yet, the film is definitely one of the best comedies I’ve seen this year, and one of the best films so far this year. I have never seen any of John Hamburg’s directorial efforts, but I enjoyed the styling of I Love You, Man enough that I will see the next film that Hamburg makes.

Sydney Fife: Society tells us we're civilized but the truth is we are animals. Sometimes we just have to let it out. Try it.
Peter Klaven: Blaaah!
Sydney Fife: Good. Now gently remove your tampon and try again.

And I'm still saying it! Yeah, I enjoyed the movie and it's really funny. But it also made me appreciate being female!
