Consensus: My Best Friend's Girl spends too much time being vulgar and offensive, leaving little room for laughs.

Cahan's curious and increasingly sincere slant on modern romance outshines its efforts to please Cook's MySpace fan base with gross-out gags (some of which are damned funny).

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.

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.

Los Angeles Times

Ultimately, its most unforgivable sin is that it's simply not funny.

This was funny to watch but the story lacks more than anything!

Dane Cook continues his streak of fecal-like films, still hitless, inept to transform his cock dick stand-up humor into a good comedy. One dimensional premise,… More
