Trivia

While filming was ongoing in New Orleans, local newspaper The Times-Picayune published a long article detailing the hard-partying, nightlife-loving ways of co-stars Lindsay Lohan and Samaire Armstrong and its negative effects on the production, pondering whether this would have an impact on Lohan's career, as she was at the time one of the most in-demand actresses in Hollywood.

Silly, But Entertaining
8 July 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Manhattan, Ashley Albright (Lindsay Lohan) is a lucky woman and very successful in the agency where she works. The clumsy Jake Hardin (Chris Pine) is an unlucky aspirant manager of the rock band McFly, who is unsuccessfully trying to contact the entrepreneur Damon Phillips (Faizon Love) to promote his band. When Ashley meets Jake in a masquerade party, they kiss each other, swapping her fortune with his bad luck.

"Just My Luck" is a very silly and predictable comedy, but also entertaining. Lindsay Lohan is charming and adorable as usual and shows a good chemistry with Chris Pine making this movie work. Further, the story has no villain and all the characters are nice. Forget the private life of Linday in the tabloids and enjoy 103 minutes of fun in this forgettable fell-good movie. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Sorte no Amor" ("Luck in Love")
