Trivia

While everyone else would rehearse for a scene, Lindsay Lohan would sit in a corner and a stand-in would do her scene with the other principal actors. Then, when film rolled, Lohan would saunter over and repeatedly flub her lines after which she'd often throw a fit and someone had to console her and lead her away. See more »

Goofs

Right after Ashley broke the mirror with the hair dryer and she is sitting next to the sink, her hair is completely dry and styled even though she didn't even start drying her hair yet and it had not been enough time for it to dry on its own. See more »

Silly, But Entertaining
8 July 2007 | by 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")
