Detailed plot synopsis reviews of I Love You, Man

Peter Klaven is engaged to the woman of his dreams Zooey. He feels uneasy at the fact that he has nobody to consider as being his best man. Since he is a successful real estate agent he decides to use his knowledge and schedules a series of "man dates" in hopes of finding the right guy to be his best man at his wedding. While getting to know most of the "man dates" it becomes extremely awkward from the very beginning. In desperation, he finally hits it off with Sydney Fife on the first day of meeting. Sydney is quite the charmer and is opinionated and has a likable personality. Before you know it Peter and Sydney are best of friends. Zooey feels that this plan of Peters isn't exactly what she had in mind. It seems that the closer Peter and Sydney get, the further he drifts from his soon to be wife. With the wedding close by, and drama heating up Peter contemplates a way to stay good friends with Sydney and keep his girl happy.

Best part of story, including ending: I love the story because of the bromance and comedy intertwined. The characters orchestrate amazing chemistry and the dialogue of the movie keeps you laughing.

Best scene in story: I like the scene when Peter is on the phone and he says, " I'm working like a doag" and the face he makes after he gets off the phone with Sydney.

Opinion about the main character: What I like about the character is how he captures awkwardness perfectly. His character is so funny, sympathetic, and dorky.
