A man (Dane Cook) comes to the realization that he may not be able to have a long-lasting romantic relationship with anyone because of a curse placed on him by a girl with whom he refused to have sex when he was a teenager. However, all of his ex-girlfriends seem to end up finding their perfect match right after breaking up with him. Suddenly he becomes popular with women who want to date him and dump him so they can then find the man of their dreams, while he falls deeply in love with a woman (Jessica Alba) he's desperate not to lose. Also with Dan Fogler, Michelle Harrison and Ellia English. Directed by Mark Helfrich. [1:36]

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.




INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
