Hmmm, I wonder if they have canned eulogies...
I'm just kidding.
I agree. If anything, just go there to get some ideas of what to talk about, but don't just recite someone else's speech. I gave one at my best friend's wedding, and just said a little something about him, then his fiancee, commended the parents on raising them, wished them both good luck, and threw in a few jokes and stories in there. It was only like 3-5 minutes, tops.
best man speeches are supposed to be short and meaning full. dont ramble, dont wing it up there. make a few good points, say good luck, but dont drag it out. let the maid of honor drag it out...
personal opinion from me is: the shorter the better... i havent been to a wedding where i was glad the speeches were long!
good luck man... just dont give the speech drunk.

Best man speech.....
There are a fews ways you could go. It depends on if it's a relative, best friend or a good friend.
1.The traditional best man's beginning often involves thanking the bride and groom for their gifts and compliments to 'the team' of bridesmaids, ushers, and etc.
2. Make a point of addressing the couple, and especially of talking to and about the bride too. Too many best man's speeches almost entirely overlook her.
3. If you have to embarress the groom your material should be funny without being nasty, risqué without being offensive. (if you think you can't pull that off, it's best just not to.) You don't want to be remembered as the one that ruined the reception.
4. It can seem like a good idea to mention past relationships, but tread carefully. The golden rule: If there's a chance it might upset the bride... leave it out.
5. Talk about how you met the groom, how you came to be best friends, how much you really think of him, your perspective on the growing relationship between bride and groom, how he behaved differently with her (the moment I knew it was serious...) keep it light, up beet, and real.
6.your best wishes for their future together etc.
If you have any messages to read, include them after your main speech.
Conclude with a toast to the bride and groom.
