In order to keep the woman of his dreams from falling for another guy, Charlie Logan has to break the curse that has made him wildly popular with single women: Sleep with Charlie once, and the next man you meet will be your true love.
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

For the UK cinema release, the distributor wanted to remove 1 minute and 7 seconds of footage to make it containable at the '15' certificate instead of an uncut '18'. As a result, in this version we do not see a man's head between the buttocks of a lap-dancer, nor do we hear a man telling an adult joke to children nor a crude and explicit monologue about a sexual experience. One aggressive use of very strong language was also deleted. See more »

I can handle my fair share of raunchy humor, but to do that, it at least needs to be funny. It's offensive, dull, and lacks any depth between the characters. I couldn't help but wonder why such a charming actress, Kate Hudson, would settle for such crap.
It's suppose to be part of the storyline that the character Tank is an a-hole.But the dialog is so distasteful, and Dane Cook is so natural at being unlikeable, that you can never really recover from it. When it comes to that time in the movie your suppose to root for him.... "Get the girl!", I couldn't shake the cringe left on my face from him telling small children about sexually explicit acts, or him telling some dude to put "it" in his mouth...and that's just the tip of the this Lewd,Crude iceberg.
If you want distasteful AND funny, go rent the 40 Year Old Virgin again and leave " My Best Friends Girl" as just a tune on your ipod.
