Movie Notes: My Best Friend’s Girl
= 1 star
Starring Dane Cook, Kate Hudson, Jason Biggs
Directed by Howard Deutch
Dustin (Jason Biggs) hires roommate Tank (Dane Cook) to take Alexis (Kate Hudson) on an intentionally lousy date to prove what a great guy Dustin is. Unfortunately the whole thing backfires and Alexis and Tank start dating.
- One funny part: Dustin shaves off an eyebrow.
- Dane Cook, resembling a sleepy, puffy Ben Affleck specializes in gross-out humor. I found little of his crass behavior funny.
- Poor Hudson seems too old for this movie, in particular, as Mr. American Pie’s girlfriend.
- By film’s end, Alexis and Tank reunite not for any character-driven reason, but because the movie convention of “opposites attract” dictates it. To do this, Alexis becomes as much of a crass, distasteful asshole as Tank. Pathetic.
Hudson’s been on an unfunny, misogynist roll with this stink fest and the retarded Bride Wars. Don’t waste your time with this dreck – Hollywood needs no encouragement to continue making this swill.
