Weekend Box Office Sort Of Proves That Yes, Others Like Me Love Paul Rudd

America's Paul Rudd Mancrush

America's Paul Rudd Mancrush

Over the weekend, Mrs. Cinematically Correct and I paid (or should I say that our friends paid and we owe them twenty bucks) to see “I Love You, Man”. This is after the free screening that we attended on February 23rd. On the 24th, I wrote my review. That review may have been a bit off base as it is much, much better after a second viewing.

It’s just that Paul Rudd plays this part so understated that it’s possible to miss the subtle genius at work. From the nicknames he attempts to give Segel, to the way he awkwardly ends phone conversations, it’s really a fantastic comedic performance. Now, there is word that Rudd may get a huge role in an upcoming James L. Brooks comedy. As we all know (well, douchebags like me know), Brooks invented the R-rated romantic comedy.

Here’s hoping that “I Love You, Man” has a strong run at the box office.

Cinematically Correct note: This post was an excuse to post the eCard above.

    Rudd and Segal have great comedic timing, especially together, but Rudd is the actor that makes the performances look so easy and natural with the choices that he makes. Segal’s performance will get people in the door, but the film hinges on Rudd’s performance in the long run, and his relatability on screen will be why people will watch the film again on DVD.
