    But what little humor there is in the movie becomes subservient to the grisly violence, gratuitous cruelty and ugly car chases.

    You won't feel anything. Period. Oh, maybe bored or disoriented by the inside jargon and alien references that will be comprehensible only if you happen to have played the computer game on which Wing Commander is based. [12 March 1999, Calendar, p.F-10]

    Skip it. Just fill in the blanks and you too can brew the same bland, goopy mixture, right down to such clunker lines as "There is a Santa Claus, Ma. He just doesn't come to Brooklyn anymore."

    Struggles awkwardly to bring a twist or two to its hoary class-conscious story line, aiming for a subtlety in character development that's smothered by excessive kitsch and kink.

    • 24 Metascore
    • 10 Gene Seymour
    An unintentional parody of every teen movie made in the last five years. Which can be the only rational explanation for making such a mess all over the screen.
    • 13 Metascore
    • 10 Gene Seymour
    Even the movie finds itself asking when it'll end. Not soon enough.

    Stay as far away from Just My Luck as you can.
