Movies, and as much of an admitted man-crush as I have on Paul Rudd, I'm not entirely sold on his fledgling bromance with potential best man Jason Segel. Talented riffers though they may be, the script is formally credited to director John Hamburg, whose Along Came Polly came to mind with this trailer's flatulence observation.
Eh, we both know I'd give a cast that included those two, SNL's Andy Samberg, and The Office's Rashida Jones the benefit of the doubt and about ninety or so of my minutes. For what it's worth, a pal in Austin caught a recent test screening and somewhat shared Scott's sentiments on the film, among them: "This affable farce has next to nothing in the plot department, and much of the material (both good and not-so-good) feels improvised rather than written, but (like Rudd's previous flick, Role Models) there's certainly enough to enjoy."
I Love You, Man opens SXSW on March 13th before going wide a week later.
