San Francisco Chronicle

By Peter Hartlaub
It's a hilarious comedy made even more successful because so much of the satire seems fresh.

By far the best Judd Apatow comedy that Judd Apatow had nothing at all to do with.

Premiere

This movie was absolutely hilarious, and proved that dating might be easy, but making friends is much harder.

ILYM is the comedy that Rudd lovers have been waiting for since he first charmed us silly in "Clueless." It explores both the dweeby and heartthrobby sides of this guy whose crooked smile fails to mask his social anxiety.

Chicago Sun-Times

By Roger Ebert
Above all, just plain funny. It's funny with some dumb physical humor, yes, and some gross-out jokes apparently necessary to all buddy movies, but also funny in observations, dialogue, physical behavior and Sydney Fife's observations as a people-watcher.

It's a rare comedy that actually grows funnier on reflection. It benefits enormously from the talents of the two stars.

Rolling Stone

By Peter Travers
The movie goes soft in its final stages, but Rudd and Segel keep it real. "Sweet, sweet hangin'," says Peter of knowing Sydney. The same goes for the movie.

Boston Globe

By Ty Burr
The movie stakes out a whole new arena - male social performance anxiety - and ruthlessly mines it for comic embarrassment.

USA Today

By Claudia Puig
There are ribald jokes and gross-out episodes, but the movie works because everything hinges on the camaraderie and undeniable chemistry between Rudd and Segel.

New York Daily News

By Elizabeth Weitzman
The central love story, platonic though it may be, is entirely between the men. Their connection - and I’m determined to avoid the word “bromance” - saves this film from becoming just another Apatowian wanna-be.
