My Best Friend's Girl
Provided by Metacritic.com
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 Hollywood Reporter
Eventually the conventions of romantic comedy take hold, with the humor declining precipitously.
The actors (especially Alec Baldwin, as Tank's horndog dad) elevate the material slightly, but such piffle will just fill you with longing...for a better movie.
The New York Times
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."
My Best Friend's Girl isn't just a misfire; it's a misfire compounded by a chain of miscalculations, and it's hard to figure out who this could appeal to (except, perhaps, Dane Cook's fan club).
The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
An ugly, strictly-for-meatheads comedy that can only be recommended to couples who wear matching Tie Domi Toronto Maple Leafs jerseys out on a date.
The A.V. Club
Dane Cook plays a smug jerk in the dismal comedy My Best Friend's Girl. Strike that: He's only ACTING like a smug jerk.
Los Angeles Times
Ultimately, its most unforgivable sin is that it's simply not funny.
There's a cheap thrill in watching Hudson defuse Cook's pig antics with some foulness of her own.
TV Guide Magazine
It lacks the courage of its swinish convictions, and abruptly acquiesces to bland rom-com clichés three-quarters of the way to its appointed end.
