On "I Love You, Man"

From The Dispatch:
To make things worse, the film centers around one basic central joke, that it's funny when guys talk to each other as if they're in a relationship. "I Love You, Man" does nothing more than bank on its audiences' inherent homophobia. It rams this tired joke down our throats for nearly two hours until I wanted to gag. This is low humor of the most disgusting kind, the kind that assumes the worst in its audiences and exploits their prejudices. For a film that is billed as a comedy, there are very, very few laughs. I didn't so much as crack a smile once, and I couldn't wait for it to end.

I want to be mature. But I think a 'lol' is required. I was considering seeing this- now I have no need! Thanks for saving me $12!

Thanks to the incredible chemistry of its two leads, I Love You, Man stands as one of the best buddy comedies since Swingers.
