Nothing says, “Baby, I really, really would like to get into your pants later tonight,” then shelling out $50 bucks for a night at the movies watching a Kate Hudson romantic comedy. Lionsgate, apparently having mistaken us for an actual movie site worth sending posters to, sent us this teaser poster for Hudson’s “My Best Friend’s Girl” a few days ago, but I was kinda lazy and didn’t do anything with it. Since it’s a slow news day today, here it is.
The film co-stars that guy who did it with a pie in that movie about a pie, and the comedian who everyone seems to hate, especially fellow comedians, but who will always remain in that deep part of my heart where I store guilty pleasures and old Playboy magazines, if just for his “van heist with a monkey behind the wheel” gag — aka Dane Cook.
Smart, beautiful and headstrong, Alexis is the girl of Dustin’s dreams. But after only five weeks of dating, the love-struck Dustin is coming on so strong that Alexis is forced to slow things down – permanently. Devastated and desperate to get her back, Dustin turns to his best friend, Tank, the rebound specialist. A master at seducing – and offending – women, Tank gets hired by freshly dumped guys to take their ex-girlfriends out on the worst date of their lives – an experience so horrible it sends them running gratefully back to their beaus.
Like I said, if you want a little sumthin’-sumthin’ with the GF or the missus, take her to go see this thing. You can also take your best friend, too, because let’s face it, tricking best friends into stabbing his own eyes out is funny.
Starring Kate Hudson, Dane Cook, Jason Biggs and the bloated Alec Baldwin.
Your best friend expires September 19.
