I loved Just My Luck
30 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There were so many factors that made me smile all through the movie. When I bought a ticket along with my sister, I entered the theather's doors not knowing what to expect. I have loved watching Lindsay Lohan in Mean Girls and Chris Pine in the Princess Diaries 2, but seeing them together in one movie was bliss. Although you don't see Ashlee(Lohan) and Jake(Pine)communicate until like 30 minutes into the movie, you can't help but try and push them into a FAITHFUL situation. Not just that but I loved seeing Ashlee's friends stick by her through it all. With comedy and romance, this movie made laugh and wish I had my boyfriend close by. I especially loved how the movie ended, sweet and with a great message.
