Dustin, an amiable guy, is in love with Alexis, a coworker. 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. 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. More complications ensue as the wedding of Alexis's sister approaches. Tank seeks advice from his father, Dustin pursues Alexis, and questions of self-worth need answers. Written by

I love Dane Cook and his brand of comedy doesn't bother me, so I knew this movie wouldn't either. Although the ads might depict a cleaner version, it's clearly rated R (obviously for several reasons), and the plot line shown in the ads definitely points toward the true depiction seen in this movie. I laughed from beginning to end, and while I was caught off guard by the extreme boundary-pushing done throughout, it left me in tears from laughing so hard. I went with my boyfriend, who up till now has never found Cook's stand-up to be funny, and he laughed so hard he could barely breathe at times.
Kate Hudson was great in this, a completely different role than her previous movies. Jason Biggs plays the dorky guy well, as noted in American Pie, but definitely gets laughs of his own. Alec Baldwin's character came as a surprise to me, but was very funny also.
I can see this movie appealing to more guys than girls, but if you don't mind the crude side of Dane Cook (who I thought definitely delivered more than just his stand-up routine with other people mixed in), then this movie is for you!
