[Movie Review] - My Best Friend's Girl

Recommended Posts

Dustin (Jason Biggs) is in love with Alexis (Kate Hudson). Dustin’s room mate Tank (Dane Cook) makes a living by going out with girls who have dumped their boyfriends, so the boyfriends pay Tank to go out with the girl and give them a really rotten date so that they rush back to their ex-boyfriend.

 

Dustin tells Alexis he loves her after dating her for 6 weeks and Alexis’s room mate convinces Alexis she should expand her horizon’s and see other people. Well of course Tank takes out Alexis but they manage to hit it off and try to keep their affair secret from Dustin. So it sounds pretty much like your standard romantic comedy – NOT!

 

This movie is rather vulgar and not very funny, especially if you have seen movies such as Forgetting Sarah Marshall. The jokes tend to be rather offensive rather than funny, however they may appeal to the teenage market.

 

Jason Biggs hasn’t really graduated from his American Pie roles. And I don’t know what Kate Hudson was thinking when she signed up for this movie – she should be getting better roles than this.

 

Even RottenTomatoes rates it a lowly 13%.

 

The only highlight in this dismal movie is its sound track. The theme music for the movie is of course The Cars “My Best Friend’s Girlfriend”, however there are some other notable tracks too.

 

I wouldn’t even bother waiting for this one to come out on DVD.

 

I was tempted to walk out but thought I may as well stay and see the ending – I rarely walk out of movies

 

You're always dancing down the street

With your suede blue eyes

And every new boy that you meet

He doesn't know the real surprise

 

(Here she comes again)

When she's dancing 'neath the starry sky

Oo, she'll make you flip

(Here she comes again)

When she's dancing 'neath the starry sky

I kinda like the way she dips

Well she's my best friend's girl

She's my best friend's girl

But she used to be mine

 

You've got your nuclear boots

And your drip dry glove

Oo when you bite your lip

It's some reaction to love, o-ove, o-ove

(Here she comes again)

When she's dancing 'neath the starry sky

Yeah, I think you'll flip

(Here she comes again)

When she's dancing 'neath the starry sky

(Here she comes again)

I kinda like the way, I like the way she dips

Cause she's my best friend's girl

Well she's my best friend's girl-irl

And she used to be mine

She's so fine

 

You're always dancing down the street

With your suede blue eye-eyes

And every new boy that you meet

Doesn't know the real surprise

 

(Here she comes again)

When she's dancing 'neath the starry sky

(Here she comes again)

Oh, she'll make you flip

(Here she comes again)

When she's dancing 'neath the starry sky

(Here she comes again)

I kinda like the way, I like the way she dips

Cause she's my best friend's girl, uh

She's my best friend's girl-irl-u-irl

She used to be mine

She so, fine

 

(My best friend's girlfriend)

Oh

(My best friend's girlfriend)

She used to be mine

(My best friend's girlfriend)

Yeah yeah

(My best friend's girlfriend)

Said she used to be mine

(My best friend's girlfriend)

Oh, yeah yeah yeah

(My best friend's girlfriend)

She used to be mine

(My best friend's girlfriend)

I can't believe you actually thought a Dane Cook movie would actually be worth anyone's time.

For me the draw was Kate Hudson as I think she is a decent enough actress.

 

If I had of known what Dane Cook's comedy was like I wouldn't have bothered.
