The trailer for I Love You, Man, one of those newfangled bromances that are sweeping the nation, is below. It’s about a guy with no male friends and his quest to find a best friend via the Best Friend finding version of Hitch. The bad news is that it comes from writer/director John Hamburg, whose writing credits include Meet the Parents/Fockers and Along Came Polly. He appears to be one of those guys, like Paul Rudd, halfway between The State crew (he directed a few episodes of “Stella”) and the Apatow crew (he directed a few episodes of “Undeclared”), which brings us to the good news: I Love You, Man stars both Paul Rudd and Jason Segal, as well as Jon Favreau and, unfortunately, Andy Samberg.

It’s hard to make heads or tails of the trailer: It looks more likable than funny, similar to Role Models and Forgetting Sarah Marshall, which were both excellent comfort movies that rode on the coattails of casts’ collective charm. And, as if you need another reason to attend SXSW this year, besides PajibaCon and the opportunity to do body shots off of Prisco, I Love You, Man will also be the film festival’s opening flick. That likely means that Rudd will probably make an appearance at SXSW, as he has in past years. And if he’s lucky, maybe he can do a body shot off of Prisco.
