7. Spenser Confidential (2020).
‘Spenser Confidential‘ is an action comedy film directed by Peter Berg.

Parker’s fictional private investigator of the same name, who is also the subject of novels and television movies.

As a result, the movie is in complete contrast to ‘Me Time’ but still holds some familiar visual elements.
6. Keanu (2016)
‘Keanu’ (also known as ‘Cat Boys’) is a buddy comedy film directed by Peter Atencio. The story centers on two cousins who attempt to steal their kitten from a gang. The film stars iconic comedy duo Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key, and their on-screen dynamic will remind viewers of Sonny and Huck from ‘Me Time.’ The movie is a loose parody of the hit action movie ‘John Wick‘ and viewers hungry for more action in a buddy comedy after watching ‘Me Time’ will enjoy ‘Keanu.’
5. Grown Ups (2010)
Directed by Dennis Dugan, ‘Grown Ups‘ is a comedy film. It stars Adam Sandler as Lenny Feder (Kurt McKenzie), Kurt McKenzie, Marcus Higgins and Rob Hilliard as childhood best buddies. Years later, after taking different paths in life the friends reunite for a family vacation.

4. I Love You, Man (2009)

The premise will remind viewers of ‘Me Time’ as Sydney and Huck both serve as negative influences on the seemingly perfect lives of Peter and Sonny. Rudd and Segel’s on-screen dynamic drastically differs from Hart and Wahlberg’s in ‘Me Time.’ Nonetheless, both films are directed by John Hamburg.
