I Love You Too

This delightful aussie comedy stars Peter Helliar, Brendan Cowell, Yvonne Strahovski, Peter Dinklage and the gorgeous Megan Gale in this quirky comedy about love, a bromance  and the inability of some men to say "I love you".

Compared to the Hollywood and formulaic romantic comedies from the US, I Love you Too is a breath of fresh air and Director Daina Reid does a great role of taking a rather average script and turning it into something interesting.

The story revolves around two thirty something friends, Jim (Cowell) and Blake (Helliar) who are playing the never ending game of "scoring" with women and as a wing-man, Jim is always shot down by the various women they encounter. They also have an odd male bromance relationship.

However one day, cupid decides to intervene and on a night out, he meets Alice (Strahovski) and before you know, the two of them become more than just friends. Unfortunately things are a little rough for Jim and whether it's his childlike innocence or inability to function in the real-world, he has a few problems.

The first problem is that he is still living in his childhood house, second, he cannot tell Alice that he loves her and third, Alice has decided to stay in Australia because of Jim but when he fails to commit, the conflict begins and if Jim cannot tell Alice that he loves her, she is going back to England for good.

With romance, drama and a healthy amount of comedy, some almost in the gutter, I Love you Too is quite a treat to watch not just because it's in our own backyard but because of the actors.  The star of I love you Too is definitely Helliar and although his character is clichéd, over the top and down right obnoxious, there is a charm in him as is the charm of Brendan Cowell as Jim, the definitive "loser" friend or "straight man". Their friendship is straight out of a Hollywood movie but somehow it works.

Strahovski on the other hand plays a wonderful down to Earth Alice and spurned woman and Megan Gale is definitely in for the titillation factor as opposed to a serious character she is trying to be *not*, an Italian Supermodel Even so, it's easy to push these inconsistencies aside and at the end of your viewing, you'll be left with a smile on your face which is definitely the goal.

Great for a Saturday night in!
