My Best Friend's Girl

Movie Summary

Howard Deutch
My Best Friend's Girl is a 2008 romance that explores the humorous complications of two people falling in love under the wrong circumstances. Tank (Dane Cook) has an unusual hobby. After another guy messes up and loses his girlfriend, Tank arranges to go on a blind date with the ex-girlfriend. On the date, Tank behaves so terribly that the woman realizes her mistake in dumping her ex-boyfriend and returns to him. Tank fixes countless relationships with his unorthodox method, but when his roommate Dustin (Jason Biggs) needs help landing a feisty coworker, Tank meets his match. Alexis (Kate Hudson) is both beautiful and outrageous, and when Tank tries his usual tricks, Alexis is unfazed. At the end of the night, Alexis even invites Tank up to her apartment. Dustin is disappointed to learn that Alexis still isn't interested and redoubles his own efforts to win her heart. Meanwhile, Tank finds himself strangely drawn to the one woman who was able to beat him at his own game. The two begin a tentative relationship, but Dustin's stubbornness and Tank's sketchy past threaten their newfound happiness together.moreless


Metacritic Score

    Variety Joe Leydon

    Manages to distract auds from the predictability of the plot with fusillades of profanely funny dialogue and some playfully sexy chemistry generated by Cook and Hudson.

    The New York Times Laura Kern

    A date not entirely to be skipped. It's a movie tailor-made for those who think it's a turn-on to passionately kiss someone to whom they've just said, "I hate you."

    Los Angeles Times

    Ultimately, its most unforgivable sin is that it's simply not funny.
