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
The director allowed the actors, particularly Dane Cook, to improvise extensively, often diverging completely from the script. He would sometimes run 20 or more takes, letting the performers do something different every time, before settling on a few of those ideas in order to get pick-ups or close-ups. This made life particularly interesting for the principal and background actors in the scene with Dane, as well as for the prop and sound personnel. See more »

First off this movie is total vulgar trash. But it's fun vulgar trash. Best Friend follows the same formula that Cook's previous movies did. Super hot girl just substitute Hudson (much better actress) for previous hot co-stars Jessica Simpson and Alba. But only the terrible employee of the month and so so Good Luck Chuck this movie is funny. Cook is in his best form so far on the silver screen. He is crass and disgusting and the movie is not a bit believable but you'll laugh. If you are easily offended but off color humor or bad language or sexual references this is not the movie for you. The vulgarities come flowing out of Cook and Hudson left and right. It'a little hard to believe every women falling or going out with Cook or you ever see why Hudson falls for Cook at all but who cares. the movie makes you laugh. This movie is a formulaic romantic comedy but with the raunchy sense of Humor of 40 year old virgin, knocked up and superbad. Best Friend will be hated by audiences as it doesn't have the underlining sweetness of 40 year old or knocked up. Some people in the audience not expecting a raunchy romantic comedy will hate this movie but if you go in expecting wild vulgar fun you'll get it.
