Very funny movie for older teens and adults

This movie is hilarious! There is quite a bit of cursing and talking about sex but it is really funny. I would recommend it for older teens and adults.

Very Disappointed

The language was horrible. The first 5 minutes they used the f-word more times than I could count. Why ruin a good movie with language like that.?

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.

Loved It!

Great fun movie---love Paul Rudd---some crude high school moments---but overall good film. Recommend for 16+ or a mature 15 year old.

Good movie to watch with a best friend

i thought it was a very funny movie and it deffintly had some good messages, but there is also a lot of swearing and sexual jokes throughout the movie which may not be approproite for some. Some of the role models in it arent very good either espically Jason Segals chracter. But it deffintly had a good message to it about being a good friend and also why it is important to have them. I say it's ok for high schoolers just be warned about some of the language in the movie.

Not up to par

There is an incredible amount of really obvious product placement in the movie from Volkswagon to Apple's iPhone to Heiniken beer. This seemed like a movie with middle school jokes for a middle-aged audience. It was a comedy without any funny people. All the comedy comes from people being extremely awkward, and most of the humor is based on Paul Rudd saying nonsense. This was close to being a good movie, but instead of taking the time to make it something to be proud of they said, let's just get it out there and make money.

While the story line is a cute one and there are some genuine adult laughs, I felt that the sexual cont4ent and the language was gratuitous. The times when I laughed the hardest were at those moments when the characters stuck to the plot, without the stuff that would have made me cringe if kids had been there. I'm not sure I didn't cringe without kids there . . .
