My Best Friend's Girl
Smart, beautiful and headstrong, Alexis is the girl of Dustin's dreams. But after only five weeks of dating, the love-struck Dustin is coming on so strong that Alexis is forced to slow things down permanently. Devastated and desperate to get her back, Dustin turns to his best friend, Tank, the rebound specialist. A master at seducing and offending women, Tank gets hired by freshly dumped guys to take their ex-girlfriends out on the worst date of their lives an experience so horrible it sends them running gratefully back to their beaus.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"There's something genuinely transgressive beneath the movie's rom-com surface, though director Howard Deutch keeps retreating to the safety of frat-boy humor."
‑ Reece Pendleton, Chicago Reader
"There are no surprises here, but speedy pacing and a smattering of laughs along the way, as well as a knowing turn by Alec Baldwin as Tank's even more piggish father, make My Best Friend's Girl a date not entirely to be skipped."
‑ Laura Kern, New York Times
"Inane, raunchy romantic comedy inspires no love."
‑ S. Jhoanna Robledo, Common Sense Media
"This is one of those films that would be enormously improved by the arrival of 100 crazy Somali pirates who would proceed to take the entire cast hostage."
‑ Christopher Tookey, Daily Mail [UK]
"It's a wonder the guys don't just wear Flintstone loincloths. Now let's hear it: Yabba-dabba-don't."
‑ Victor Olliver, Teletext
"In order for My Best Friend's Girl to work at all, it needs a leading man with the charisma to suggest the soulful, lovelorn gentleman behind the crude serial womanizer."
‑ Scott Tobias, AV Club
"Ultimately, its most unforgivable sin is that it's simply not funny."
‑ Michael Ordoņa, Los Angeles Times
"...ultimately falls prey to the melodramatic silliness that one has come to expect from the romantic comedy genre."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Tedious, largely unfunny and poorly written comedy with the least likeable collection of characters you'll see all year."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"Any schmuck with a typewriter and a dirty mouth can test the limits of good taste; it's something else entirely to push the boundaries of narrative possibility and emotional empathy."
‑ Josh Rosenblatt, Austin Chronicle
"The inexplicable romantic comedy career of Dane Cook marches on."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"An ugly, strictly-for-meatheads comedy that can only be recommended to couples who wear matching Tie Domi Toronto Maple Leafs jerseys out on a date."
‑ Stephen Cole, Globe and Mail
"mostly unwatchable"
‑ Christopher Null,
"Yet another in a continuing line of dismal Dane Cook so-called romantic comedies."
‑ Pete Hammond,
"A rude, crude romantic comedy with a touch of nastiness that's refreshing and quite funny."
‑ Jason Di Rosso, MovieTime, ABC Radio National
