My Best Friend's Girl 

Nothing new in this predictable romantic comedy. The insufferable Dane Cook plays Tank, a good-looking but obnoxious guy who’s such a bad date, his buddies get him to go out with their ex-girlfriends because they know they’ll come back to them after one night with the guy. But when his best friend and roommate Dustin (Jason Biggs) enlists his help, the plan backfires. Tank is obnoxious as ever, but the feisty Alexis (Kate Hudson) doesn’t mind and ends up falling for him. Tank discovers he has feelings for her, too, and thus the film heads down a familiar path as Tank must choose between his best friend and his best friend’s girl. While Alec Baldwin has a nice turn as Tank’s insensitive and over-sexed dad, the movie had little going for it, especially since Cook thinks his fast-talking stand-up skills translate to the big screen (they don’t). And yes, the Cars’ song from which the movie takes its name plays incessantly throughout the film. HH
