I Love, You Man is the latest comedy from Paul Rudd and Jason Segal. The film is a bromantic comedy where Rudd’s character goes on quest to find a Best Man for his wedding. He meets Sydney, a laid back investor and the two hit it off. The two eventually go on a man date, and become best friends. It sounds very Brokeback Mountain-esque but I’m sure the movie is hilarious. I haven’t seen it yet but I’ve been meaning to.

The soundtrack will please Adam Coozer of ReadJunk.com, who happens to be a big-time Rush fan. Rush is even in the movie I hear. They are featured on the soundtrack as well with songs “Tom Sawyer” and “Limelight.” Jason Segal and Paul Rudd even do a cover of the song “Linelight” on the soundtrack. I’m assuming it’s in the movie? Latch Key Kid opens the album up with “Good Times” and I dug that song a lot. I never heard of Latch Key Kid before. Other notable bands on the album include Vampire Weekend, The Black Keys, The Cars, Matt Costa, The Donnas, and Dean Martin. I like the cover of “Dancing with Myself” by The Donnas. I don’t listen to them much but when I hear their stuff, I like it a lot. Ending the album is a score track from film composer Theodore Shapiro. All in all, the soundtrack was pretty cool and I liked most of the tracks.

Bottom Line: A good batch of songs, but nothing too special.
Notable Bands: Rush, Vampire Weekend, Latch Key Kid, Matt Costa, The Donnas
