    A sparingly funny film with some truly revolting characters.

    Though its about a romance between Alba and Cook, you can almost feel an epic tug-of-war going on between the two of them; Cook trying to make the film dreadful, Alba trying to make it just bearable.

    despite the movie being a cheaply made, mean spirited gross out comedy, I can't say i didn't get my fill of rauchy jokes and gags.I can say i was mighty satisfied.

    I thought parts of the movie were funny but the jokes became tiresome and repetitive. Please no-one compare this to Superbad. The characters in Superbad were always funny and endearing and the storyline was brilliant. Good Luck Chuck was just 1 and a bit hours of crude and sometimes disturing boob jokes with no chemistry between the characters. Jessica ... what were you thinking??

    It's an extremely uneven movie that delivers some comedy every now and then, but relies on the constant repetitive jokes of simplicity. It's not always bad, but after a straight hour of it, you'll be looking for at least ONE inkling of intelligence in this slow, mostly uninteresting comedy. Dane is Dane, no real available comments on his acting, because it's not really It's an extremely uneven movie that delivers some comedy every now and then, but relies on the constant repetitive jokes of simplicity. It's not always bad, but after a straight hour of it, you'll be looking for at least ONE inkling of intelligence in this slow, mostly uninteresting comedy. Dane is Dane, no real available comments on his acting, because it's not really acting at all, it's just Dane. As far as Jessica Alba goes, she just does what she's supposed to: act dumb with a big heart. As for uneven, it stretches itself in moments of big reaches for hilarity, and then coming back to an absolutely absurd love story, and terrible dialogue with pick-up lines commenting on a girl being like a penguin, and how they're awkward when they're out of water, and beautiful in it. How that was supposed to make Alba feel when he said that, i have no idea. Dane's friend is half hilarious, half annoying. You'll eventually tire of him (along with just about everything else in the movie) but he is able to have his moments. The one who seems to pull out the best is Alba's brother, the marijuana man. Every time he's put on the screen it's funny, and sticks to what this script was supposed to exude all along: good-natured comedy. But when you water it down with drab, overdramatic lines of love and loss of love, you end up with someone completely unentertaining. And the last half hour or so of this movie is absolutely atrocious, which brings any humor you experienced in the first parts to completely go out the window. The ending credits however, are a joy. They're the funniest part of the entire movie, which, however sad it may be, at least gives you some hope Dane can still be funny. Sadly, you won't still want to be in the theater when the credits finally make their way down. Expand

    Very funny film, that has to be taken for what it is: 1st degree low level humor. But wait for it to see it on tv, doesn't worth paying for DVD rental.

    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.
  2. Good Luck Chuck is this year’s low-ender to beat.

    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?
