Daryn Tufts, the writer and director, originally had a cameo in the movie, playing a waiter who recognizes the character of David and bothers him while he's eating. The confrontation was cut out of the film. However, part of David's reaction was kept for a montage in the final cut of the film, and Tufts' hand can still be seen patting David on the shoulder.

"My Girlfriend's Boyfriend" is just what a romantic comedy should be: cute, romantic, and funny. It's also incredibly clean. The writer/director didn't rely on any gross-out or sex humor; instead, the story was filled with genuinely funny moments. Especially watch for the gum commercial--I laughed out loud repeatedly (and am chuckling again as I think about it)! The leads do a great job, and Tom Lenk nearly steals the show as the main character's brother. This isn't your predictable chick flick; sure, you can probably guess who will end up together, but the route the movie took from point A to point B wasn't at all what I expected. I'm always on the lookout for movies I can recommend without reservation, and this is definitely one. Highly recommended!
