Most that have heard of Dane Cook know his name from comedy. It's how I first heard of him. He's a comedian with at least 7 DVDs of his sets, plus some other specials he was part of.

Released in 2008. Directed by Howard Deutch
Dane plays Tank.
Co-stars include Kate Hudson, Jason Biggs, Alec Baldwin, and Lizzy Caplan.

Tank is hired by men to date their exes. He takes them on the worst date they have ever been on so that they will gladly run back to their ex, even if they weren't that much better. Tank is fine with doing this, until he meets Alexis, the girl his best friend likes.

This is actually among my list of favorite comedies. It's raunchy and uninhibited. It had me laughing and entertained. "What about frosting my tips? - What are you, a mini wheat?"
