Dane Cook Picks Same Movie No.2

Dane was shocked to see people watching Employee of the Month.Dane Cook has a lot of myspace friends but none of them will stop him from making bad movie choices. I guess real friends are better than cyber friends.I have to commend Dane Cook on his script picking ability. For those of you who don’t know who Dane Cook is (i.e. most of the world), he is an American stand-up comic who is currently the new may be the next “it” boy. This means he has a bucket load of offers flying around him and the world will see a whole bunch of Dane Cook movies in a short period of time which will determine whether he will be a regular star or not. Think Sean William Scott after American Pie (1999), he followed that up with a barrage of leading roles: Road Trip (2000), Dude, Where’s My Car? (2000), Evolution (2001), American Pie 2 (2001), Stark Raving Mad (2002), Bulletproof Monk (2003), The Rundown (2003).

So now it’s Dane Cook’s turn, it began with Employee of the Month (2006) and will continue with Good Luck Chuck (2007) with Jessica Alba. Here’s the synopsis:

Poor Charlie! He gets with all these foxy ladies, and then they marry the next guy they meet! Why? Because a demented Goth girl put a curse on him when he was 10, naturally! But instead of feeling sorry for himself, Charlie realizes he's a good luck charm and helps out a long line of marriage-hungry women by sleeping with them and sending them on their merry, married way. Then one day he meets Cam, an accident-prone penguin specialist. He doesn't want her to marry some other schmuck - she's super-foxy! How will he break this "good
luck curse?"


Now compare that to the synopsis of the new movie he’s just signed up for Batchelor No. 2:

Written by Jordan B. Cahan, the script focuses on a man named Tank, known for being hired to take girls out on absolutely terrible dates so they will crawl back to the boyfriends they dumped. When his best friend needs his help with the girl who dumped him, Tank struggles with his raging libido and the meaning of friendship.

Mr. Cook obviously isn’t afraid of being type cast or he just really believes in the phrase “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it”. Good luck Dane.
