EDITOR'S NOTE: The reviewer was not able to obtain a rated copy of this film, therefore she watched the unrated DVD version.
“My Best Friend's Girl” is just another representation of all the movies about a love triangle gone wrong. I has it all, betrayed friendships, poor views on love, and plenty of profanities. There are some scenes that can draw a chuckle, but most of the content is just too crude to be funny.
This story revolves around Tank (Dane Cook), who is a sex-seeking, controversial bachelor with a hobby of being the worst date ever, for a price. Many ex-boyfriends hire Tank to deliberately make their ex-girlfriends miserable, offended and shocked for a first date. In doing so, the men hope that their ex-girlfriends will come crawling back to them.
All goes well in this eventful film until Tank's best friend, Dustin (Jason Biggs), has to hire Tank because his girlfriend Alexis (Kate Hudson) breaks it off with him. Unfortunately, things do not go according to the plan. This adds a corky twist to the otherwise uncharming situation.
This film is well put together, and the actors are great, but this story is too heavily lathered in crude situations and vulgar language. In one scene, there is an adult joke that is told to children. In another, there is a very poor tasted joke about a priest, rabbi and a little boy (you get the picture). This film would be a fun and entertaining story, if it did not contain all of the very inappropriate material. Overall, I cannot recomend this film.
