The movie itself as a whole certainly reflects this central point as it is nowhere near perfection thanks to a superfluous and unnecessarily neat ending, but for the most part Deutch succeeds in delivering something quite unique and satisfying at the same time. Three months later, Tank is on a date when Alexis sees him and spontaneously decides to sabotage the date by embarrassing him. Απελπισμένος στρέφεται προς τον καλύτερο του φίλο, σπεσιαλίστα στην αποπλάνηση γυναικών, τον Τανκ. I can't believe it got such a bad rating here but I guess I've also seen movies on here with high ratings that just sucked. The film ends suggesting their relationship is back on. Dustin sends Alexis roses and an apology poem in Tank's name.
After which they reconcile with a kiss. With a few simple steps you can change your Netflix region to a country like United Kingdom and start watching British Netflix, which includes My Best Friend's Girl. Reception Critical response The film was poorly received by critics. The movie is raucous fun from then on until the end. Alexis, distraught from the fact that Tank used her, and that Dustin paid to cheaply win her, never wants to see either of them again.
There are numerous problems arising throughout the feature, most notable of which exists between the lacking chemistry between Cook and his co-star Kate Hudson, but given the way in which Deutch presents Jordan Cahan's anti-romantic story, it's not something worth crying about. Sure, Dane Cook was basically being Dane Cook. Perhaps one of the factors that made me like the movie is the fact, that I can be somewhat of an asshole myself. Year it's rude and crude but. Maybe because I wasn't expecting Oscar material. Love isn't perfect; in fact it can be down right ugly at times, and while My Best Friend's Girl isn't out to dramatise that theme, it does well at poking fun of it.
Tank points out his clients, including the groom, and is punched and thrown out. He asks his pal Tank Dane Cook to take her on a horrible date so that she will come running back to him, and Tank happily agrees. When she tells him she just wants to be friends, he hires his roommate Tank, a fast-talking, amoral scoundrel who has a side business: men whose women have dumped them hire Tank to take their ex-girlfriends out on the date from Hell, to drive the women back into their old boyfriends' arms. The twist is she can give as good as she gets and vice versa. I understand why it doesn't have huge box office appeal, but it certainly has appeal for a specific type of audience.
Okay, the guy gets paid to be the date from heck so the girls goes crying back into her guy's arms. Tank goes to see Alexis and they end up having on a regular basis while Dustin begins a series of desperate attempts to stay friends with her after all. Dustin, in an effort to be funny, awkwardly remarks that he would like to have what the baby is having. Yes, many of the jokes aren't gonna make you burst out laughing and the whole romantic scheme is kinda yawn-inspiring, but it kept me entertained and my mug glued to the screen. This is not a piece of art, but if you ever went to frat parties and can remember having fun at them and want to spend some time laughing out loud, give My Best Friend's Girl a look. In this vein the movie distances itself from the immediate residents within the somewhat bloated genre, presenting a refreshing polar opposite view of romance on the big screen in all its imperfections.
After the date Dustin explains his situation to Tank who volunteers his services as a good friend instead of having to pay for his services as usual. I'm not particularly into Dane Cook. I'm sorry that more people can't enjoy 115 minutes of silly escapism. Tank bumps into Alexis and they arrange to go out. My Best Friend's girl is for all intents and purposes not the kind of a-typical romantic comedy affair that we are so often forced upon to see month after month of the year. After the date Dustin explains his situation to Tank who volunteers his services as a good friend instead of having to pay for his services as usual. Distraught, Dustin goes to Alexis's home to see her but is told by her roommate that Alexis was busy upstairs with the guys she has been having sex with regularly.
I just really had a good time at this movie. Dustin initially turns him down, not wanting Tank to be close to Alexis, but the next day sees Alexis flirting with another co-worker and begs Tank to take Alexis out. What works even more to the movie's ability to win the audiences over however is its ability to crack a chuckle or two. As a way to make some money on the side lots of it Tank works as a 'nightmare-rebounder'; when a guy gets chucked to the curb his partner, Tank chats her up, treats her to a lousy date and in turn the woman realises how naive she was presumably being. Everyone in the Theater I was in was laugh through the movie too.
Sure, it goes without saying that much of the humour here is crass and gauche to the point where it may turn people even further away, but director Howard Deutch does a fine job of balancing his two core elements in ways that so many romantic comedies just don't ever get close to. What is most refreshing of all however is that the movie very rarely succumbs to holding your hand and trying to get you to like it. When looking through traditional romcom eyeglass, lead character Tank Dane Cook isn't the most likable or even compelling leading man. Ύστερα από μόλις 5 εβδομάδες καθημερινών ραντεβού ο ερωτοχτυπημένος Ντάστιν είναι σίγουρος ότι η Αλέξις δεν έχει σκοπό να προχωρήσει την σχέση. He behaves badly all night but Alexis is too drunk to care. Alexis calls Tank at work and berates him for leaving early the previous night. While attending the wedding of Alexis' sister Rachel , he realizes that she is one of his previous bad dates.
After which they reconcile with a kiss. One thing that I loved about this movie is that it wasn't so fake. I looked at my watch. When he drops her off she expects him to come in but he resists the temptation out of loyalty to Dustin. My Best Friend's Girl earned a nomination for Worst Actress ; also for. For a living Tank works at a call centre for a company that sells air purifiers, and yet this isn't where the majority of his income comes from and that's just as well, because he's terrible at that one. This victim actually winds up setting the stage for a few plot twists I didn't expect.
He takes out Alexis who, against her better judgment, decides she needs some randy fun, so Tank is in a quandary: take Alexis up on her offer, or stay true to his friend. But, we figured we could pass time for two hours so we went in. Throughout the evening Tank inevitably behaves in the most moronic fashion causing the girl to realize that her ex was not really such a bad guy after all and get back to their ex. We are simply giving you the best information on what is new on Netflix around the world! What you need is a system that lets you change your Netflix country. Instead I recommend this to those who prefer edgier romance and even edgier comedy; this isn't your average fare by any means, no, it's better than that; like its lead character, it's actually good, no-brainer, careless fun. By this point, we're 20+ minutes into the movie and it made me laugh twice and is otherwise pretty lame. Dustin, an amiable guy, is in love with Alexis, a coworker.
