My Best Friend's Girlfriend is a 2008 Filipino romantic comedy film, released in 2008 under GMA Films and Regal Films.

The movie opened in the Philippines on February 13, 2008, starring Richard Gutierrez and Marian Rivera.


After an awkward yet memorable encounter at a stag party, Evo (Richard Gutierrez) and Grace (Marian Rivera) thought they would never see each other again. Little did they know that Grace is actually the girlfriend of Evo's best friend, Mark (JC de Vera). As the arrogant player that he is, Evo takes advantage of what happened at the party to make Grace agree to his demands. He forces Grace to pretend as his girlfriend to make Akiko (Ehra Madrigal), his ex, jealous.
