Isolated bits don't add up to much here.

My Best Friend's Girl isn't just a misfire; it's a misfire compounded by a chain of miscalculations, and it's hard to figure out who this could appeal to (except, perhaps, Dane Cook's fan club).
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

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

Want to spend a seemingly endless 100 minutes watching a dullard trying to decide between a douchebag and a eunuch? Then run, don't walk, to My Best Friend's Girl, a supremely irritating movie about idiots and their dull quest for unconvincing love
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

It's disturbing to think of the millions of teenage boys who will laugh when he insults a girl to get her in bed, or pees in a cactus plant at a restaurant.

The movie is mirthlessly vulgar, with only a few scattered laughs escaping from the miasma of desperation.

A film that truly bites.

It works much better as a comedy, but by the end, the romantic aspect has taken over and there's not much humor to be found after the first half.

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

Illinois Times

An insulting, wholly unpleasant excuse for a comedy.

There could be a supporting turn from Will Smith, gas cards under every theater seat, and certified proof who killed JFK revealed only after the end credits and it still wouldn't salvage Cook's ability to select the worst possible starring vehicles.

A trophy hottie who can't get enough of all the crude sexual insults this lowlife male pig - without lipstick - is dispensing as effective foreplay, while succumbing to his extreme dirty talk as the ultimate aphrodisiac.

[Director Howard] Deutch passes the buck to his three stars...

'There's this guy, Tank, and other guys hire him to give their exes "emotional terrorism." It's a romantic comedy.''Can you throw in a cheap anti-Catholic and anti-Semitic joke? And have Tank tell some kids how to pull a brutal sexaul trick on a woman?'

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.

A nauseating fraud from start to finish ... The film's level of awfulness is nothing new for Cook, but Hudson hits a new low.

Inane, raunchy romantic comedy inspires no love.

It borrows from much funnier movies such as Hitch, Wedding Crashers and My Best Friend's Wedding. Never has a romantic comedy seemed less romantic or less comedic.

Raunchy and wretched...profoundly unfunny and sophomoric sludge...meaningless material that wouldn't be suitable for lining your pet parrot's birdcage.

My Best Friend's Girl ultimately fails to measure up to its own standards.
