My Best Friend's Girl Movie Review

I'll admit there's a certain guilty-pleasure appeal to the concept of My Best Friend's Girl: Dane Cook (yeah, yeah) plays Tank (yeah, yeah... again), a customer service rep by day and a professional jerk by night: You see, guys hire him to date their estranged girlfriends after they get dumped. Tank ensures the experience is so bad that they come running back to the boyfriend, convinced they've made an enormous mistake.

It's a cute premise, and the film is at its runaway best when Tank is being a grating jerk. It seems to come naturally to Cook, who makes endless lewd innuendos, ensures his dates contract food poisoning, and leaves the poor girls a weeping mess by the end of the night.
