Storyline

Doug Harris (Josh Gad) is a lovable but socially awkward groom-to-be with a problem: he has no best man. With less than two weeks to go until he marries the girl of his dreams (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting), Doug is referred to Jimmy Callahan (Kevin Hart), owner and CEO of Best Man, Inc., a company that provides flattering best men for socially challenged guys in need. What ensues is a hilarious wedding charade as they try to pull off the big con, and an unexpected budding bromance between Doug and his fake best man Jimmy. Written by Sony Pictures Entertainment

Trivia

Early in the film when Doug (Josh Gad) falls through the desk he yells out "I can't feel my **** legs!" In Frozen, Olaf (voiced by Josh Gad) yells "My legs! I can't feel my legs!" See more »

Goofs

In the football scene between the groomsmen and old guys; after the first touchdown, the Father-in-Law shouts "touchdown, 7 to nothing." There was no extra point attempt or field goal. It was only 6-0. However, most pickup football games don't abide by the textbook rules of football (fewer players, less equipment, smaller fields, etc.) and thus it can be assumed that traditional scoring was also altered making the extra point automatic.

Kevin Hart's best movie I have seen. I laughed a lot throughout. Hart and Gad are great together. Best comedy in a while.
28 April 2015 | by cosmo_tigerSee all my reviews

"God created the world in seven days. We gotta do a whole lot more in a lot less time." Doug Harris (Gad) is getting married but has a problem. Doug doesn't have any friends and needs groomsmen. When he is told about Jimmy (Hart) he thinks he found his solution. The more the two get to know each other the more they find out about themselves. I was a little leery about this movie. The previews made it seem funny enough and I really like Josh Gad, but Kevin Hart can sometimes get a little too annoying for me. This is an exception. Hart played it almost perfect and I never once felt like he was too over the top or annoying like in Ride Along. I laughed much more than I was expecting to at this and there is enough types of humor for everyone to find something they will like. There is also enough heart and story in this to keep you interested in what is happening and not just waiting for the next joke. Me and my wife both liked this more than we expected too and this is one of the better comedies to come out in a while. Overall, nothing all that original and pretty predictable but it was very funny and when you rent a comedy that is what you are looking for. To me this is Kevin Hart's best movie I have seen. I give this a B+.
