I Love You Man

I’ve often heard that the last genre to be invented was the Mockumentary, but recent years may have added an addendum to that with the rise of the Bromance. Fans of the hetero man-love genre will certainly remember Paul Rudd and Jason Segel’s characters Peter and Sydney from the 2009 comedy I Love You Man and their extreme fandom of the band “Rush”. Well, thanks to the rise of high-end video content on the Internet we’re able to relive all of their most repeated catch phrases without having to wait for an actual sequel. In this short the two BFFs share a scene with the guys from “Rush” depicting an awkward back stage interaction at one of their shows. While I was pretty charmed by Neil Peart’s acting, I personally had to hit the “Die” button due to the dearth of original jokes. But for all of those people who like to relive the familiar and flock out to the theaters in droves for sequels, this may be a real treat.

End of the year lists usually come in tens or some sort of multiple of ten but here, as you will see, there are only seven slots. No, I’m not purposely trying to be subversive, nor was this result of laziness, and I assure you that it wasn’t an attempt to gyp you out of those bottom three slots. There just weren’t ten great, unequivocally funny comedies released this year.

Well, I wish I had some of that ability to look into the future that Nicolas Cage has, because then I would get a lot more of my predictions right. Knowing won the weekend with a haul of $24.8 million.

culturewarrior-bromance

With this weekend’s release of I Love You, Man, the recent trend of comedies centered on platonic male relationships—the ‘bromance’—is articulated to its furthest extent thus far, taking the traditional genre formula of the romantic comedy and replacing the traditional male-female love story with two heterosexual males. While this trend of celebrating intimate male friendships is pervasive and seemingly wholly new in mainstream American comedies, the determining predecessors for this trend, and its balance of male and female characters, contains roots in canonical films of 1960s and 70s New Hollywood.
