It's Funny What Love Can Make You Do.
A man who makes his living convincing women to run back into the arms of the men they have recently dumped is hired by his best friend to take out the beauty he longs to win back.

"Crude, lewd, rude and very very very very funny.  Daily Star
"...profanely funny dialogue and some playfully sexy chemistry generated by Cook and Hudson.  Joe Leydon, Variety

Editor's Note
Love conquers even the relentlessly foulmouthed Lothario played by master-class comic Dane Cook (GOOD LUCK CHUCK) in MY BEST FRIEND'S GIRL. Tank (Cook) moonlights as an "emotional terrorist," which means when a guy wants to keep a girl from dumping him, he hires Tank to intervene. Tank arranges an accidental meeting with the girl, charms her at first, then takes her through the worst date of her life, sending her running back to the safety of his client. Jason Biggs (AMERICAN PIE) is Dustin, the nerd who wants his best pal Tank to work his magic on Alexis (Kate Hudson), the stunning girl from work who "just wants to be friends." Dustin makes a big mistake, since Alexis herself is looking for the raunchy fling Tanks offers, and Tank suddenly finds himself in the position to betray Dustin's trust. Taking a page from the book of Apatow (SUPERBAD, KNOCKED UP), director Howard Deutch and writer Jordan Cahan compensate both sides of the cup-holder armrest: amidst the frat boy-friendly shenanigans lurks girl-pleasing soap-opera hand-wringing as Tank faces tough romantic choices, and vice versa. Adding to the deal are some hilarious bits from Alec Baldwin--as Tank's "feminist studies" professor father--and Lizzy Caplan, as Alexis' roommate. Mainly this is for the Cook fans out there, and they should be pleased by his general free-form display of loutishness.

Professional Reviews

ReelViews 5 of 10
Romantic comedies are fantasies. They invite us to fall in love with the main characters as they fall in love with each other. That's difficult to accomplish when viewers find themselves actively disliking those characters. How is it possible to succumb to the fantasy when its participants are sleazy, creepy, or bitchy? With My Best Friend's Girl, director Howard Deutch has the beginnings of an excellent anti-romantic comedy: unlikeable characters, betrayals, and a general desire to see everyone die in a nuclear holocaust. For a while, My Best Friend's Girl seems to be going in the direction of a full-on black comedy where the words "ever after" are spoken only in reference to the phrase "praying for the end of time" (with apologies to Meat Loaf). Alas, around the halfway point, the film takes a 180-degree turn and tries to follow the formula, reforming the selfish protagonist and proving that true love conquers all. The problem? We still hate the characters and the happy ending feels as much like a cheat as any I have seen all year...The director, Howard Deutch, has lost his way over the years. He began his career as the hand-picked helmsman for two of John Hughes' most beloved teen films, Pretty in Pink and Some Kind of Wonderful. After that, he moved on to making bad sequels to dubious "franchises." Now he has led us to this pit of a romantic comedy. Deutch has directed a lot of comedies, but few of them have been funny, and this is no exception. Whatever grasp he once displayed of fleshing out human characters is long gone...My Best Friend's Girl isn't just a misfire; it's a misfire compounded by a chain of miscalculations, and it's hard to figure out who this could appeal to (except, perhaps, Dane Cook's fan club). - James Berardinelli
