A 2009 comedy film directed by John Hamburg, the writer of ''Film/{{Zoolander}}'', as well as ''Film/MeetTheParents'', ''Film/MeetTheFockers'', and ''Film/LittleFockers'' (but don't hold that against him). [[Creator/PaulRudd Peter]] has a good job, a nice house, and a beautiful girlfriend who has just become his fiancée (Rashida Jones). Things seem wonderful, until the fiancée's friends start to comment on Peter's apparent lack of male friends. Even his family can't seem to recall any. Soon, no one is sure who will be Peter's best man, or whether he will even have one. So he sets off on a quest to find a good male friend, by going on as many man-dates as he can.

* TheUnfairSex: A mild instance - early in the film, Pete finds out that Zooey has told all her girlfriend about an intimate night they had in a hottub and he is clearly annoyed by it. Later, when he admits he has told Sydney she doesn't like performing oral sex on him, she instantly yells "Ew, that's private!" and says that her telling her own friends is "so totally different." However, she does make the point that while they are very close, Pete has only known Sydney for a short time while she has known her friends for ages, and she is just as quick to admit that Pete is right when he calls her out on the hypocrisy, so it's not as bad as most cases of this trope.
