Peter immediately sets out to rectify the situation, embarking on a series of bizarre and awkward 'man-dates,' before meeting Sydney Fife (Jason Segel, 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall'), a charming, opinionated man with whom he instantly bonds. But the closer the two men get, the more Peter's relationship with Zooey suffers, ultimately forcing him to choose between his fiancee and his newfound 'bro,' in a story that comically explores what it truly means to be a 'friend.'
