Critic Reviews for My Best Friend's Girl

All Critics (59) | Top Critics (14)

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.

Inane, raunchy romantic comedy inspires no love.

Common Sense Media

...ultimately falls prey to the melodramatic silliness that one has come to expect from the romantic comedy genre.

Reel Film Reviews

mostly unwatchable

Full Review… | February 24, 2009

This is one of those films that would be enormously improved by the arrival of 100 crazy Somali pirates who would proceed to take the entire cast hostage.

Full Review… | November 21, 2008
Daily Mail [UK]

Tedious, largely unfunny and poorly written comedy with the least likeable collection of characters you'll see all year.

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.
