User Reviews

Great concept… Not so great movie…
13 August 2006 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

I like to call myself another victim of the magic of advertising. Once I saw the trailer of "Just My Luck", I thought it would be great. Since, I liked "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days" by the same director, I thought this movie would be something like that. However, I was very wrong…

The main problem with this movie is its script, which is very immature and predictable. There's nothing new to see here and you can predict almost everything. I even guessed the ending of this movie as soon as I saw the scene where "Katy" and "Ashley" talk for the first time. If you are into movies, you will too...

If you overlook the silly script, then there comes the bad acting. What is wrong with Lindsey this time? She is totally overacting her part and the actresses who play as her two friends are not any better. It is as if they are doing roles of fairytale princesses. However, in my opinion, Cris Pine does his part well.

However, I am not saying that this movie is 100% garbage. It has two or three enjoyable scenes, but that's about it. In my opinion, "Just My Luck" has a great concept, if it was not for the childish script and bad acting this could have been a very entertaining comedy.
