I Love You, Man Trailer

DreamWorks has debuted the trailer for Paul Rudd's new comedy I Love You, Man. Starring alongside of Rudd is a dream team of comedians - Andy Samberg, Jason Segel, Thomas Lennon, J.K. Simmons and even Jon Favreau. In I Love You, Man, Rudd meets the girl of his dreams, played by Rashida Jones, and asks her to marry him, but realizes he doesn't have many male friends that would make a Best Man. So he sets out to try and find one. I've already heard great things about this and will always say that anything with Jason Segel is good - so I'm definitely looking forward to it. Plus the trailer is hilarious, too, so why not?

I Love You, Man is both written and directed by John Hamburg, the screenwriter of Meet the Parents, Zoolander, and Along Came Polly and director of Safe Men and Along Came Polly. This is not particularly a Judd Apatow produced comedy this time, although it features a lot of his regular actors. DreamWorks will debut I Love You, Man in theaters everywhere on March 20th, 2009.

Hmmm looks pretty funny. Kinda wierd that I constantly felt Seth Rogan would just pop up any second. Hes just worked with Jason Segal lots I guess. Pretty cool to see J.K.Simmons in there.

I love Paul Rudd, but I don't think he can carry a movie all by himself. That's why this movie will work very well. I can't wait.

Andy Adair on Dec 16, 2008


Andy, I love you dude, but I have to disagree. I think (if given a real chance, unlike Role Models) Paul Rudd could totally rock it. He's really funny and I think he's kind of went unoticed for one reason or another. I can't wait.

Clamson on Dec 16, 2008


Mmmm... Just don't really see it. Main guys are only sorta funny.

Juryduter on Dec 16, 2008


Clamson, I totally see where you are coming from, but it just seems that the times in the past that Paul Rudd has really shined was with a strong supporting cast. Look at his big movies: Anchorman (in which he was the supporter but he worked very well with the rest of the cast), 40 Year-Old Virgin, Knocked-Up, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and Role Models. In all those films, he was hilarious! AND in all those films there were other big time actors sharing the screen with him. The only movie recently that is JUST Paul Rudd is Over Her Dead Body (I did see it because I love Rudd!). Over Her Dead Body was not good at all, but Rudd wasn't the Rudd we are used to seeing in the rest of his performances. I do think that given the right script/director he could carry a movie on his own.

Andy Adair on Dec 16, 2008


Man I just want to see Andy Samburg everywhere. Guy's hilarious. Also Alex dude, Paul was the best part of Role Models. The guy could easily carry a movie.

Itri on Dec 16, 2008


My name is Andy, but thanks for confusing me with alex...i guess? lol Role Models was funny, but alot of that movie was made by the relationship between him AND Sean William Scott and Christopher Mintz. I am not disagreeing with any of you, just pointing out that Rudd's best work to date has been when he has been with other big actors. And Andy Samburg makes me cry. "Say hi to your mother for me!"

Andy Adair on Dec 16, 2008


I can't believe they made a movie with this plot. When I got engaged a year ago I came up with the same exact idea for a movie. Damn...missed it by one year.

jason on Dec 16, 2008


actually Paul Rudd was the star in ONE movie... i forget the name, but it was about the 10 commandments, or something like 10 different stories with a kinda-sorta ten commandments theme. It had Winona Rider in it fucking a ventriloquist dummy. It was horrible.

jason on Dec 16, 2008


im liking what i see. pretty funny so far! lets hope we wont be disapointed cause i love paul rudd, he is one of my fav actors! so here is for the best!!!

zach s on Dec 16, 2008


that looks hilarious

darrin on Dec 16, 2008


I like. But it should be called Mandate 🙂

jillinthebox on Dec 16, 2008


Anyone else feel a Vince Vaughn vibe coming from Segal in this trailer? It looks pretty funny though. Looks like one of those rare comedies that is actually really funny with a good message hidden behind it too...

Steven on Dec 16, 2008


Oh man this looks great!

Richard on Dec 16, 2008


Seeing this...

xerxex on Dec 16, 2008


Andy, I totally agree with you. Two things though. First: Over her dead body isn't a good example because a) it was a shitty movie to begin with and b) Rudd was in a totally different role than he normally was. He was a dorky, cookie-cutter, male love interest. Secondly: Don't you agree that all of the roles Paul Rudd has been cast in have been tiny fluff roles with good one liners? WHile I agree with your point, I still think if given the chance Paul Rudd could be both a great supporting actor (like seen in the past) but also a confident leading man.

Clamson on Dec 16, 2008


I'm starting to think you guys have an unreasonable bias against Rudd. I think this is a great idea for a movie, by the way. Kind of like a romantic comedy for guys? Is that right?

Tom Brazelton on Dec 16, 2008


How about The Shape of Things?

Johnny T on Dec 16, 2008


I think this looks fun and I think girls will like it because a lot of us can probably relate to dating or at least knowing the "girlfriend guy". Love Andy Samberg!

janet on Dec 16, 2008


i think this might be the movie that gets paul rudd on his own two legs (i love him, but i think a lot of the material he's got has made him rely on others) and i hope to see some comedic gold. also, isn't his fiance the bitch that got between jim and pam?

funnytunney on Dec 17, 2008


i totally loved devil wears prada too 😀 this movie looks great! loved Rudd from the F.R.I.E.N.D.S. days - he can do decent drama roles too anyone seen jersey girl?

viral on Dec 17, 2008


he totally carried Halloween 6: the curse of micheal myers.......peaked early, glad he's making a comeback

Bucker on Dec 17, 2008


paul rudd could TOTALLY carry a movie by himself! i'm rooting for him to be Hank Pym in Edgar Wright's Ant-Man! this looks cool, but they have to have a really good explaination for why he doesn't just make his brother his best man...

fanboy d on Dec 17, 2008


looks GREAT.

From the people who brought you the hit CBS show "Welcome to the Captain:...

Donald on Dec 17, 2008


Definitely seeing this, the cast is awesome. Rudd,Segal,Samberg are all hilarious. and Dangle from Reno 911. although his part seems small. I agree with you Andy, Rudd shines as a supporting player. Maybe this will get him his own Apatow movie.

theotherbluth on Dec 17, 2008


This looks really cute, Segal looks really good in this too.

tzarinna on Dec 17, 2008


This looks like a male chick flick. Err, or what Tom (#17) said up there, a romcom for guys. I have a deep and disturbing Internet stalker crush on Rashida Jones, but I'll probably be skipping this one.

kevjohn on Dec 17, 2008


i just saw andy samberg in this trailer and i jizzed in my pants looks funny, but im wondering why apatow not attached to it. it prolly wouldve been really funny if russell brand was in it, but oh well samberg is a riot and ive liked jk simmons ever since he was making guys his butt pirate on oz

LeeMan on Dec 17, 2008


Love the cast, it looks like another great comedy. It's really cool how we've been in this comedic rennaisance as of late with some very fresh faced comedies, though of course the old cows won't get out of the barn just yet, I think Jim Carrey needs to realize the limitations of his talent and exit suite left. Paul Rudd can definitely hold a film on his own. He's one of the rare Apatow vets who's got a serious and seriously funny resume. He's done a lot over the years and it shows.

Farts and Dog Poop, I'm there!

Defeatedfrog on Dec 17, 2008


Paul Rudd.....The Pride of Kansas City!

Tim "Cloverfield" on Dec 19, 2008


I actually just saw this tonight at a special screening and DAMN I loved it! This is the kind of comedy we need more of! Rudd is great, but it's Jason Segel and Jon Favreau that steal the show and make this truly worthwhile... I suggest everyone keep their eye on this and check it out in April!

Alex Billington on Dec 20, 2008


Hey Andy, Clamson loves you!! Hahahahah!!!

Spunkmeyer on Dec 20, 2008


I saw a sneak preview of this last Friday. Yes, a total rip from the school of Apatow - only one BIG difference - it's better than anything Apatow has ever done. I loved it. Someone commented earlier that this is from the guy that brought you Welcome to the Captain. Well he's also the guy that brought you Safe Men (one of the all-time greats) and whose credits also include Zoolander, Meet the Parents, Meet the Fockers and Along Came Polly. Save your judgement for when you see it. The trailer is fine - not nearly as good as the movie. And Rashida Jones.....oh mamma.

Herb on Dec 23, 2008


i want to see that sooooooooo badly hope it's not a huge disappointment the trailer had me rolling in laughter.....

neonblue on Dec 28, 2008


It wasn't that funny. There's the usual funny things many comedy films use like burping and nerds running away from big bullies, or some guy kissing another guy but seriously comedy films need to stretch and be a little more fresh.
