At first glance, Tank and Alexis, seem like the furthest thing from a compatible couple. Tank is a perennial bachelor who's turned his talent for offending and manipulating women into a lucrative side job. And Alexis, the ideal woman for any marriage-minded man, is tired of monogamous relationships and just wants casual sex.
Comedy - Despite the presence of Kate Hudson, this is not a fluffy light
romantic comedy for women but a raunchy film much more in line with
the crude and crass work of the male lead, Dane Cook. Those
sensitive for raunchy gags and constant sex talk and some graphic
scenes should steer clear.
PROFANITY: Over 30 F-words, 28 S-words, 4 GD's, many others. SEX/NUDITY: Frequent sex and sex talk. VIOLENCE: Comic hits. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Alcohol, tobacco, marijuana. ACTION: None. COMEDY: Lots of verbal and physical sex humor; banter; slapstick.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 71 moviegoers:
TEENS:Great Reviews! Half loved "My Best Friend's Girl" and half rated it "Very Good," which indicates they enjoyed the movie very much but didn't love it.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:GREAT REVIEWS! Only a small percentage was a little disappointed.
ADULTS:These are very mixed reviews. Apparently this movie is enjoyed more by young adults and less by older adults, possibly due to the strong content. I don't recommend this movie unless you're on the lower end of this age range.
Smart, beautiful and headstrong, Alexis (Kate Hudson) is the girl of Dustin's dreams. But after only five weeks of dating, the love-struck Dustin
(Justin Biggs) is coming on so strong that Alexis is forced to slow things down - permanently. Devastated and desperate to get her back, Dustin turns to his best friend,
Tank (Dane Cook), the rebound specialist. A master at seducing - and offending - women, Tank gets hired by freshly dumped guys to take their ex-girlfriends out on the worst date of their lives - an experience so horrible it sends them running gratefully back to their beaus.
But when Tank works his magic on Alexis, he ends up meeting the challenge of a lifetime. Alexis is the first girl who knows how to call his bluff, and Tank soon finds himself torn between his loyalty to Dustin and a strange new attraction to his best friend's girl.
