Dome Pondering Movie Review: I Love You Man (2009)

DPMovieReviewILoveYouManWhat’s it about?

A friendless man goes on a series of “man-dates” to search for his best man at his upcoming wedding.

Who is in it?

Paul Rudd – Peter Klaven

Rashida Jones – Zooey Rice

Jason Segal – Sidney Fife

Favorite Scene:

Peter finally works up the courage to give Sidney a call to hang out, and leaves a rather nerve wracking induced message that is filled with awkward sayings from him attempting to sound cool.

Favorite Quote:

“See you later, Joben”


I Love You Man is a very funny film that has an interesting and unique plot to it. A film that is subtly hilarious and lends a comedic entertainment quality that doesn’t revolve around over-the-top scenes. “I Love You Man” does good job of bringing to light the issue of boundaries within certain relationships while being entertaining and funny.

Paul Rudd, known for his great improve, carries the movie in his role as Peter Klaven, the friendless man who desires to find brotherhood and friendship, with witty and ridiculous sayings and terms that steal the movie.

A decent film that is entertaining and hilarious. A recommended film for those in need of an easy watch and a laugh. 

Grade: 3/5

Turning 39 - One Last Go-Around in My 30s

I turn 39 today, and everything I read in regards to such a "milestone" is that it's dealing with the anxiety of turning 40. The big 4-0!  Yet, I sit here punching the keys completely unaware of fears, trepidations, and emotions towards the future. Instead, I find myself immersed in the present - in exactly that, 39. I also find myself slightly looking back on the road to get here - my final year in my 30s.  I look back on my thoughts on turning 30 ( Praying on a Cool Thirty ) and, ironically, I very much vibe and can feel the essence of where I was at the time. At the time, turning thirty meant a whoooooooooooole sort of different expectations and responsibilities. I am in that same place - a center of gratitude for the journey. My 30s have been a ride.  For me, I became a father, and I lost my father. I lost one of my best friends, yet, I gained another in my son - and then a second one just recently. I finished coursework on my second Masters degree, and I also watch
