It could have been a lot funnier!

I Love You, Man is Rated R for pervasive language, including crude and sexual references. This film contains non-stop use of adult language. Pervasive profanity/offensive language and frequent, or even pervasive use of strong crude sexual dialogue and references are present. Overall, the film wasn't nearly as funny as I would have wanted it to be. Recommended for adults and mature teenagers only.
