My Best Friend's Girl

Dane Cook stars as a major-league asshole who specializes in mending other people's relationships: jilted boyfriends hire him to date their exes and repel the women back into their former lovers' arms. His lucrative business is threatened, however, when he meets his roommate's brassy, self-centered ex (Kate Hudson), whose immunity to Cook's antics proves irresistible to him. Cook does some surprisingly good work, bringing a darker and more malevolent undercurrent to his character than the script might have suggested. There's something genuinely transgressive beneath the movie's rom-com surface, though director Howard Deutch keeps retreating to the safety of frat-boy humor. R, 101 min.
