    The movie is raunchier than expected, and above all clichéd, formulaic and thoroughly sexist. Worst, it's just not very funny. show more

    Eventually the conventions of romantic comedy take hold, with the humor declining precipitously. show more

    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). show more

    I love this movie...although not for young children, I watch this with my teenagers and we all laugh our asses off. People that gave this movie poor reviews either were offended by the crude comedy or just didn\'t get it. I think this movie is full of comedic talent. Dane Cook was hysterical, Alec Baldwin...wonderfully funny, Kate Hudson...went out of her safety zone and rocked it. Love this movie.

    I pity all the teens and young adults who watch this and think it's the real world - or that this is the hip way to act. Even more so, the thought scares me to death. According to this film, you should screw anything and everything, as often as possible, without the slightest thought given to responsibility, human connection or fatal disease - and put the pursuit of sex before anything else in life. Sad. An unrealistic, superficial script, and even worse direction.
