Even if I hadn’t already gotten a good review back from Chodin who I sent to an early screening (I’ll post that when we get closer to release), I’d still be excited for I Love You, Man.  Paul Rudd? Andy Samberg?  J.K. Simmons?  Yes, please. It plays opening night of the SXSW Festival (that’s South by Southwest, for all you non hipster dickweeds out there) and opens wide in March.  The only problem is the plot, which involves Paul Rudd desperately seeking a best man for his wedding.  I mean, who wouldn’t want to be friends with Paul Rudd?  I don’t know about you, but sometimes I like to daydream that he and I are best friends. He pushes me down the slide, hangs out with me in our sweet clubhouse, pulls me around in my red wagon – kinda like those My Buddy commercials. What? You don’t do that? Yeah, you wouldn’t. Fag.
