Just got lucky.
4 November 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Just My Luck is directed by by Donald Petrie and written by I. Marlene King and Amy B. Harris. It stars Lindsay Lohan and Chris Pine. Plot sees Lohan as Ashley, the luckiest girl in New York, who after kissing Jake (Pine,) the unluckiest man in New York, loses her luck to him.

Yeah it's pretty thin as a concept goes, two people, one lucky, the other not so, meet and their fortunes drastically change. Cue much larkery as Lohan's it girl suffers wave after wave of accidents while Pine becomes a big mover in the music world after discovering Brit guitar band McFly. The cynical amongst us would say this is just an excuse to promote McFly in America, but if one sets expectation level at medium then Just My Luck has enough romantic comedy froth to not waste the time of the undemanding viewer. Pine and Lohan actually make for an adorable couple, but sadly the romance is under developed by the writers and the culmination of their coupling is badly rushed. The comedy set-pieces are handled well enough, while McFly themselves have enough boyish charm to not let the "hard sell" get annoying.

Far from breathing new life into yet another role reversal comedy, Just My Luck is still, thanks largely to its two leads, engaging enough while it lasts. 6/10
