My Best Friends Girl


This movie stars Dane Cook.


What, you're still here?

Huh. I'd have thought you'd have 'x'd out the window at the mere mention of his name. I would.

Cook plays a man who is hired by other men to date their former girlfriends. The idea is that he'll pretend to be a callous, awful jerk and therefore drive them back into the arms of their better-by-comparison ex.

Okeedookee.

His buddy, played by Jason Biggs, hires him to push Kate Hudson into loving him, but of course Cook falls in love. Blah blah, yada yada, boy loses girl, act three begins, more blah blah roll credits.

I admit I'm being a little harsh here. It was an OK movie, but I thought some of the actions - namely his performance at a wedding - would be/should be clear and permanent deal breakers.

Rent it if you have some spare time - and a free movie coupon.

2.5 out of 4

Nope... I disagree. LOL I love this movie. Its wonderful. I ordered it on PPV in Jan 09 and its still in my DVR. My BFF and I watch it about once a month now. We even learned the short little dance he does at the prom.

Shut up. :-)

Dane Cook is superfine.

Okay, I admit, we actually liked this movie. I'm not a fan of Dane Cook, but this movie made me laugh...a lot.

Is it a great plot? No.
Is the acting phenomenal. No.

But it's just...damn funny. :D
