The shots of the McFly concert in Times Square were actually shot in England for McFly's home-fan base. While changing lighting and camera angles, McFly would play their other songs for the fans before playing the ones for the movie while filming. See more »

Danny Jones' voice can be heard singing harmony with Tom Fletcher, but he is nowhere near his microphone in the shot. See more »

A Lovely Light Film!
12 July 2008 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

I watched this film expecting a really bad performance from Lindsey Lohan and thinking that McFly would be dreadful but man I was wrong!!! Lindsey Lohan performed a mighty performance one of her best I've seen in years! McFly were good better than I expected and they made me feel like they were just being real which is very good. "Just My Luck" was a great film and Lindsey's bad luck is hilarious!!! I previously read a review saying it was Oscar worthy and yeah I think it deserves some sort of nomination but no way a Razzie!!! I just think it's not extraordinarily good but it light and all will enjoy especially the young kids! So go on buy or rent "Just My Luck" for a good light blockbuster!
