My Best Friend's Girl

In this comedy from director Howard Deutch (The Whole Ten Yards), Dane Cook plays Tank - a professional 'bad date'. Guys who’ve just been canned by their girlfriends hire him to take their exes out, show them how vulgar other guys can be and send them scurrying back to their previous relationship. Jason Biggs plays Dustin – Tank's best mate – who's just been dumped. He enlists his buddy's unorthodox services, but doesn't count on his sassy and gorgeous ex Alexis (Kate Hudson) actually liking the obnoxious prick.

An almighty slapstick love triangle ensues as Tank juggles his growing feelings for Alexis with his loyalty to his friend, while Dustin decides to become more like Tank to win his girl back. Who will she choose? The asshole or... the other asshole?

It seems that romantic comedies are moving away from their sweet as sugar roots and incorporating a ruder, coarser approach to getting laughs. Similar to outings like Wedding Crashers and Knocked Up, My Best Friend's Girl touches up the traditionally girly template with a liberal dose of laddish laughs. What next, action blockbusters for the ladies? That'd be ... interesting.

Manages to distract auds from the predictability of the plot with fusillades of profanely funny dialogue and some playfully sexy chemistry generated by Cook and Hudson.

A date not entirely to be skipped. It's a movie tailor-made for those who think it's a turn-on to passionately kiss someone to whom they've just said, "I hate you."

Struggles to find a balance between being a romantic comedy and a loutish, irreverent comedy.

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

Eventually the conventions of romantic comedy take hold, with the humor declining precipitously.
