Tank faces the ultimate test of friendship when his best friend hires him to take his ex-girlfriend out on a lousy date in order to make her realize how great her former boyfriend is.
Title is taken from The Cars hit song (featured in the film).
If "ifs" and "buts" were cocks and nuts, I'd be getting gang banged right now.
Tank and others smoke in restaurants and bars. The movie is set in Boston. In 2004, Massachusetts banned smoking in all indoor public places, including restaurants and bars.
For the UK cinema release, the distributor wanted to remove 1 minute and 7 seconds of footage to make it containable at the '15' certificate instead of an uncut '18'. As a result, in this version we do not see a man's head between the buttocks of a lap-dancer, nor do we hear a man telling an adult joke to children nor a crude and explicit monologue about a sexual experience. One aggressive use of very strong language was also deleted.
