Jason Di Rosso
MovieTime, ABC Radio National

A rude, crude romantic comedy with a touch of nastiness that's refreshing and quite funny.

The Age (Australia)

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.

At the Movies (Australia)

The film veers off into that realm of unbelievability that I react against. But there is a certain fascination in watching Cook strut his stuff (and boy does he strut), and Kate Hudson is pleasant to watch.

Urban Cinefile

It's coarse and funny, but there's something really endearing about this twisted romantic comedy in which the protagonist excels at being a self-proclaimed emotional terrorist

Hitch has nothing on My Best Friend's Girl... the best romance since The Notebook.

Boxoffice Magazine

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).

There are no surprises here, but speedy pacing and a smattering of laughs along the way, as well as a knowing turn by Alec Baldwin as Tank's even more piggish father, make My Best Friend's Girl a date not entirely to be skipped.

Cook is most amusing while emphasizing his sardonic edginess, a trait that may eventually serve him well in some anti-heroic (or downright villainous) dramatic role. Better still, he establishes an effectively fluid give-and-take with Hudson.

Inane, raunchy romantic comedy inspires no love.

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

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.

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.

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

Yet another in a continuing line of dismal Dane Cook so-called romantic comedies.

It's a wonder the guys don't just wear Flintstone loincloths. Now let's hear it: Yabba-dabba-don't.

Austin Chronicle

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.

You should steer well clear of the nasty ideas that screenwriter Jordan Cahan has about relationships and how they work.
