There are by far too many comedies being manufactured these days to satisfy a young generation who deem it amusing if they recognise a low-brow parody.
Thankfully, there exists a small range of actors, writers and directors who still have a sense of what's both amusing as well as entertaining. To name but two of them, Paul Rudd and Jason Segel, the stars of the movie.
The film presents us with the mild-mannered Rudd who has never had any close male friends, and yet is about to be married. So enters Segel, the epitome of the modern laid-back dude, to teach him what it's like to be, essentially, a guy.
The film is hilarious. There is no other word for it. Digging a little deeper, yes, there are certain imperfections in the character development and the way things work between the characters themselves. All of this is merely overshadowed by the acting ability and the number of laughs it contains.
The movie isn't as ridiculous as others in it's category, (such as the awesome "Step Brothers"), but still maintains a basis in the frat-house comedy stylings. The entire film doesn't rely on the two main actors either, (albeit their shining proof of how funny each can be), as they are supported by a cast of sheer delight.
Segel pilfers the plot and steals the show, proving himself to be as funny as any acting counterpart. After watching the piece, you'll want nothing more than to watch it again just for him; or simply seek out other things he's been in!
I thoroughly suggest this film as a perfect couple comedy. It suits boyfriends and girlfriends as well as the two best mates after a laugh. Best of all, you can relate to it, making it all the more humerous!
Best way to put it: a real treat. Simple as.
