I am a big Dane Cook fan. I have been laughing with him ever since "Harmful if Swallowed," and love his cameo roles in films like Waiting. His starring roles, however, haven't done it for me. I don't know if it's the scripts he chooses or what, but there seems to be a Dane Cook formula brewing here. Take his new comedy, My Best Friend's Girl, for instance. The film feels a whole bunch like Good Luck ChuckorEmployee of the Month. Since those two films weren't good, what can expect from this?
My Best Friend's Girl Trailer
A master at seducing – and offending – women, Tank is a professional My Best Friend's Girl. When guys get dumped, they hire Tank 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. So when Tank's best friend, Dustin, is dumped by his new girlfriend, Tank naturally offers to help out... and ends up meeting the challenge of a lifetime. Smart, beautiful and headstrong, Alexis is the first girl who knows how to call his bluff, and Tank soon finds himself torn between his loyalty to Dustin and his love for his best friend's girl.
My Best Friend's Girl opens to theaters on September 19th.
