Storyline

Doug Harris (Josh Gad) is a lovable but socially awkward groom-to-be with a problem: he has no best man. With less than two weeks to go until he marries the girl of his dreams (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting), Doug is referred to Jimmy Callahan (Kevin Hart), owner and CEO of Best Man, Inc., a company that provides flattering best men for socially challenged guys in need. What ensues is a hilarious wedding charade as they try to pull off the big con, and an unexpected budding bromance between Doug and his fake best man Jimmy. Written by Sony Pictures Entertainment

Doug Harris: Bic Mitchum.
Jimmy: Do I wear a cape? "Hello, ladies, what's going on? My name is Bic." "I'm Bic Mitchum and I love candy!" "Bic Mitchum can have whatever he wants!"... I like it.
[later on]

Cuoco's nipples + a viable business idea
25 January 2015 | by thefolenangelSee all my reviews

This movie's has two big and cool things, those are Kaley's nipples, more precisely the scene in which she does not wear bra and this business idea for a company that servers best men for hire.

As a person who is having troubles with human connections, I felt very emphatic with this movie. A question I have asked myself numerous times is do I make a mark on a person's life. And from this point and more precisely the movie's explanation for a best friend "someone that makes you feel better for yourself", this movie is a success that most people will not admit.

However, and there is always a but of course, it is not a very original movie. It relies heavy on movie clichés and well known designs.

Final judgment: As a movie I like said, Poe did not invent the words in his poems, as this movie did not invent most the scenes it used, however the order they are is what makes his poems unique. It is the same with this movie, it is quite enjoyable and id made me laugh a few times.
