I Love You, Man /
Miller gets Malkmus'd /
Rudd, Hamburg, Segal are good sports

Won passes to "I Love You, Man" sneak. Paul, Jason and the director John were there for a post Q&A. Everyone was super cool. It's hard to believe this movie came from the guy who made Along Came Polly. But if you compare the two side by side, it is super easy. You have the uptight guy (Paul Rudd / Ben Stiller). They meet the play by their own rules ying to their yang (Jason Segal / Jennifer Aniston). Its the age old tale of Felix and Oscar.

It was super funny. The scenes give room for people to do what they do best. There's very little in the way of conflict. Its mostly just there to keep the movie going.

Also, since when is Rush awesome? I have hated them for years. What's with the voice of Geddy Lee indeed. But man alive if the songs and use of the band as a minor plot device didn't convert me into a fan (sort of).

My roommate got to ask about Jason Segal's schlong and do some Pavement lyrics. Luckily Paul Rudd is just as awesome as you'd expect. How could he not be when the bassist for Clap Your Hands taught him bass for the movie. They also got Jason to play Dracula's Lament from Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Except for the venue tricking us into watching a Comedy Sketch before they started the movie (universally hated by the crowd) it was a great evening.


Did you enjoy it?

Would you see it in theaters again?
Yes. I did.

Would you rent it?

Would you buy it?
Yes. For the RUSH songs more than anything else. That and to "slappa da bass!"

Would you watch it if you saw it was on TV?
