My Best Friend's Girl
on 8 February 2010
`My Best Friends Girl' is an average comedy where a guy called Tank earns his money by going out with girls on dates and by giving them such a bad time they go running back to their ex boyfriends. Unfortunately, he does this for his best friend (Dustin) so he can win the girl (Alexis) of his dreams and ends up falling in love with her instead. This has some genuinely funny moments amidst some of the more cruder jokes and the bit where Tank dances at a prom is especially good. Alexis' roommate Ami is quite humorous as well and comes out with some funny lines. Alec Baldwin plays Tanks father and is an ageing lothario who taught Tank all he knew about women and although he is crass as hell, he also has some funny lines which will raise a chuckle. This has a good soundtrack with some standout songs by Teddy Thompson and Johnny Cash. This isn't the best comedy you will ever see and some of the more cruder jokes may make you cringe, but all in all it is a fairly innocuous way to spend an evening and will raise a laugh here and there. It is good, but not great.
