Okay, there's some cliche, and familiarity, but at the core is a unique modern problem our lead character must face to resolve the films basic conflict which is its easier to find true love than it is a best friend of the same sex. Our lead, interviews perspective males like on a normal date- except he is searching for "bromance" not romance, as his fiance is concerned there wont be anybody present from his side at their wedding.
Paul Rudd is his typical likable/ vulnerable self in this comedy romp,adroitly directed by comic veteran Ivan Reitman, which features Andy Samberg as his unaffected gay brother, and some really good cameos by Lou Ferrigno(spelling?).Strong supporting cast in Jane Curtin, J.K. Simmons and Jaime Pressly. The film is very well paced, never boring or "cutesy" What works the best is the recurrence of jokes and idioms and characters thru the entire film. Very funny, modern, light, and highly recommended to teens and older.
