Critic Reviews for My Best Friend's Girl

All Critics (59) | Top Critics (22)

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.

December 8, 2008 | Full Review…

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.

October 18, 2008 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

Dane Cook proves why he is one of American comedy's favourite big-time naughty boys in this fast, funny, foul-tongued but sweet-natured adult-skewed romantic comedy.

October 10, 2008 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

If you like watching anarchy in action, this exhibition has its moments, but the anti-woman humour underpinning it -- and Cook's whole performance -- does cast a pall.

October 10, 2008 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

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).

September 23, 2008 | Rating: B | Full Review…

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.

Audience Reviews for My Best Friend's Girl

A master at seducing and offending women, Tank is a professional. When guys get dumped, they hire Tank to take their ex-girlfriends out on the worst date of their lives an experience so horrible it sends them running back to their ex's.An outrageous,(at times) sexy, no-holds-barred romantic comedy

I can't say that this movie was amazing for story line or anything but I laughed my ass off almost the whole movie. It's basically like a male alternative to a "chick flick". Year it's rude and crude but.... IT"S DANE COOK! if you went in thinking that it would be anything less then your just dumb, The trailers showed you exactly what you are getting. One thing that I loved about this movie is that it wasn't so fake. most guys in chick flicks are so wonderful then they just make one mistake and spend the rest of the movie trying to fix it till everyone lives happily ever after. This movie isn't like that at all. One last thing I liked is that I couldn't have predicted just how far he would go to mess things up, so the shock value of almost everything he says is awesome. Everyone in the Theater I was in was laugh through the movie too. I can't believe it got such a bad rating here but I guess I've also seen movies on here with high ratings that just sucked. whatever.

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, a Jason Biggs mainstay. Kate Hudson is like a double glazed chicken crisper.
