Brendan Ehrlick, star of TV's popular cop series "Hard Justice," would like to come out of the closet to his parents. His first step? Come out to his best friend Cory in Florida and solicit his help. Cory already knows he's gay but comes to L.A. anyway, where his actions, rather than help Brendan, put him in awkward, possibly career-threatening situations. As corporate managers advise Brendan to remain uninformative in dealing with paparazzi, Cory ventures off into a one-night-stand with Emily, a lesbian on the rebound from a toxic relationship. He falls for her, but being with him confuses her life-long lesbian identity. Her struggles with this prompt Cory towards suddenly becoming a better friend to Brendan, leading to an immediate abduction followed by a violent, sword-wielding confrontation at the "Hard Justice" cast party.

Sappy, artificial drama that'll make you squirm in your seat out of sheer discomfort. Max Landis lacks restraint when it comes to comedy, beating a joke over the audience with wild abandon. There are some genuinely funny moments (like Haley Joel Osment's cameo, and...), but they don't make up for petty, inconsequential drama. The characters almost seem to be a modern take on 90's sitcom caricatures; they overreact to everything--to which it seems we're suppose to find amusing...but it isn't--and they are as self-absorbed as humanly possible. With three unlikable leads and a jarring sense of humor... Me Him Her really could of used more of Haley Joel Osment and Scott Bakula.
