  • Summary: It all started when Charlie Logan was 10 years old. Breaking the cardinal rules of spin the bottle, Charlie refused to lip-lock with a demented goth girl--and she put a hex on him. Now, 25 years later, Charlie is a successful dentist...and still cursed. While his plastic-surgeon best friend, Stu, pursues as many of his patients as possible, Charlie can't seem to find the right girl. Even worse, he discovers at an ex-girlfriend's wedding that every woman he's ever slept with has found true love--with the next guy after him. Before he knows it, Charlie's reputation as a "good luck charm" has women--from sexy strangers to his overweight receptionist--lining up for a quickie. A life filled with all sex and no love has Charlie lonelier than ever--that is, until he meets Cam. An accident-prone penguin specialist, Cam is as hard-to-get as she is beautiful. But when a genuine romance develops, Charlie realizes he's got to find a way to break his good-luck curse...before the girl of his dreams winds up with the next guy she meets. (Lionsgate) Expand

    At least Jessica Alba's legion of fans will have something to smile about. If nothing else, Helfrich has shown her in the best light. If only there was something worth seeing here other than her.

    Though he’s known for his mildly edgy standup, someone in authority has decided Cook would be well-suited for fluffy romantic comedies, but like last fall’s Employee of the Month, Good Luck Chuck is so undistinguished that it feels like an extended screen test.

    If "Wedding Crashers" is in your top ten rom-coms ever, you might not hate this. Otherwise, it’s too gross to be sweet and too sweet to be gross.

    There's an audience out there for this kind of thing--Cook is obviously a populist, and Norbit made bushels of money--but if this is what passes for funny, what in the world of comedy DOESN'T qualify?
  5. Good Luck Chuck is this year’s low-ender to beat.
  6. 25
    This is less an affront to women than it is to comedy.
  7. It was like a Farrelly brothers gross-out without the laughs.

    Simply put, this movie is hilarious! I laughed all the way through it. The people who gave it bad ratings need to lighten up and get a sense of humor. Expand

    I thought this movie was hysterical. Not all movies need to have deep meaning. The best friend was a little over-the-top, but I found Cook & Alba hilarious. Lighten up! Expand

    Not the best movie you'll see this summer, but funny, entertaining, and surprisingly enjoyable. Try as they might, there's no convincing performance of any on-screen chemistry between the two leads. So once you get past that and just enjoy the movie for the oversexed sidekick and slapstick humor (a la Superbad), it's not that bad of a "romantic" comedy. Despite the cheesy overdone and predictable "romantic comedy" themes, I found myself (and everybody else in the theater) laughing throughout the movie. Dane Cook is at his best when he's obviously improvising his lines. The movie lives up to its R rating with the colorful language and many bare breasts (and Cook's butt). Expand

    Do not go to this movie. save your money. maybe 3 laughs. The only one who thinks Dane Cook is funny is himself. Jessica Alba is beautiful, but look at her somewhere else. Expand

    Dane Cook has never been funny once in his entire life and Jessica Alba is just here to be looked at like always. Yawn.
