Storyline

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.

When the first of Dustin's eyebrows is shaved off, it is clear that he has prosthetic makeup over the area, as the ridge of that eyebrow is suddenly quite a bit lower than the ridge with the remaining brow. See more »

Absolutely HIlarious!
22 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was one of the best comedies I have ever seen. I literally had beverage spewing out of my mouth. Those who didn't like it? Well they must be more the conservative prudish type. Was it a little raunchy? yes. But thats partly what made it so funny. When you are thinking "o no he didn't" you then see "o yes he did". Dane cook is absolutely friggen hilarious! And anyone who knows dane cook knows his comedy style. So you get what you are expecting. No, you get better! I didn't see this at the movies- it was a rental. And glad I didn't because the laughter would have drowned out the movie! But, it would ahev been worth it. Maybe I just have a dirty/nasty sense of humor, but i have recommended this movie to all my friends and family.
