I think it's hilarious that a bunch of dudes are in here talking about how much they love this emotional-rollercoaster of a movie and how much it reminds them of times they felt heartbroken in the past. Let's just e-hug it out. Dude hug?
The fact that is a romantic comedy from the guy's perspective is a huge reason why so many guys love this movie. The fact that most of us can relate to his situation because we have been there before is also a huge reason. Well and JGL is awesome.
