|Title:||I Love You, Man|
|08.30.09||Netflix|| Another solid comedy. The current state of comedy is pretty weird. It's kinda like the kids who grew up watching The Ben Stiller Show, The State, Uprioght Citizens Brigade, and Freaks and Geeks are now in control of Hollywood. Although I don't have any greenlight power, I also watched and loved all those shows so for me it's kind of weird because I like ALL these guys and think EVERYTHING is funny. How failed 90s tv shows became the seed of contemporary i'll never know, but I am thankful because this is right up my alley.|
Anyway, Everyone was pretty funny in this. I really liked that they picked Rush as the band they geek out over considering Jason Segel's Freaks and Geeks character. It's _almost_ like (in the same way that John Cusack in Grosse Point Blank _could_ be Lloyd Dobbler from Say Anything) Segel's character in this movie is just what happened to Nick Andopolis after Freaks and Geeks. He moved out to LA, got a Venice bungalow, met an older stoner mentor who snapped him out of the whole angst thing, fell into a few great investment opportunities, got laid A LOT, and here we are.
I also like that Favreau took an acting gig. And that Thomas Lennon had a part. And Joe lo Truglio. And Lou Ferrigno. blah blah blah I liked it and laughed quite a few times.
