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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Yet another in a continuing line of dismal Dane Cook so-called romantic comedies.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

It's a wonder the guys don't just wear Flintstone loincloths. Now let's hear it: Yabba-dabba-don't.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

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

You should steer well clear of the nasty ideas that screenwriter Jordan Cahan has about relationships and how they work.
Leigh Paatsch
Daily Telegraph (Australia)

A film that truly bites.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

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.

'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?'

A raunchy vehicle for Dane Cook fans? A sprightly romance for Kate Hudson fans? A genial underdog comedy for Jason Biggs fans? The correct answer is: a big, steaming pile of horse manure.
Austin Kennedy

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

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

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