Plot Summary

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. But when Tank works his magic on Alexis, he ends up meeting the challenge of a lifetime. Alexis is the first girl who knows how to call his bluff, and Tank soon finds himself torn between his loyalty to Dustin and a strange new attraction to his best friend's girl.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The actors (especially Alec Baldwin, as Tank's horndog dad) elevate the material slightly, but such piffle will just fill you with longing... for a better movie. – Gregory Kirschling, Entertainment Weekly, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: It borrows from much funnier movies such as Hitch, Wedding Crashers and My Best Friend's Wedding. Never has a romantic comedy seemed less romantic or less comedic. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Oct 18, 2008

Rotten: Ultimately, its most unforgivable sin is that it's simply not funny. – Michael Ordona, Los Angeles Times, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Eventually the conventions of romantic comedy take hold, with the humor declining precipitously. – Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter, Sep 22, 2008

suprisingly funny

i work at blockbuster and get movies to rent for free, for some reason or another i had this movie and decided to watch it during a lazy week day afternoon. i was so surprised when i saw how freaking funny this movie is. i personally am not a fan of dane cook, let alone jason biggs but somehow cook's humor returns to his early days of standup when he really uses a lot of body language to communicate with the audience. i would definitely recommend renting this movie, really worth it if you want a good laugh.


My best friend told me to watch this movie just on the basis that we are HUGE Dane Cook fans. He has blown me away with this movie. I was laughing non stop and by the end of the movie I was in tears. I walked out of the theather with my friend and we were just quoting lines form the movie the whole way home. It's great and anyone who loves him, or just anyone should watch it. Especially if you want to laugh untill you cry.

My Best Friend's Girl review

I thought this movie was pretty good, actually. I laughed a LOT. I just want to throw this out there - the movie was supposed to be vulgar. It had to be, otherwise it wouldn't have made any sense. If that's not your cup of tea, I would suggest reading the DVD cover before you decide to watch it. In substantially-sized lettering at the top is, "Crude, Lewd, Rude and Very, Very, Very, Very Funny!"
