Variety

By Joe Leydon
Manages to distract auds from the predictability of the plot with fusillades of profanely funny dialogue and some playfully sexy chemistry generated by Cook and Hudson.

The Hollywood Reporter

By Frank Scheck
Eventually the conventions of romantic comedy take hold, with the humor declining precipitously.

The actors (especially Alec Baldwin, as Tank's horndog dad) elevate the material slightly, but such piffle will just fill you with longing...for a better movie.

The New York Times

By Laura Kern
A date not entirely to be skipped. It's a movie tailor-made for those who think it's a turn-on to passionately kiss someone to whom they've just said, "I hate you."

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

By Stephen Cole
An ugly, strictly-for-meatheads comedy that can only be recommended to couples who wear matching Tie Domi Toronto Maple Leafs jerseys out on a date.

By James Berardinelli
My Best Friend's Girl isn't just a misfire; it's a misfire compounded by a chain of miscalculations, and it's hard to figure out who this could appeal to (except, perhaps, Dane Cook's fan club).

There's a cheap thrill in watching Hudson defuse Cook's pig antics with some foulness of her own.

TV Guide

By Maitland McDonagh
It lacks the courage of its swinish convictions, and abruptly acquiesces to bland rom-com clichés three-quarters of the way to its appointed end.

USA Today

By Claudia Puig
The movie is raunchier than expected, and above all clichéd, formulaic and thoroughly sexist. Worst, it's just not very funny.
