In order to keep the woman of his dreams from falling for another guy, Charlie Logan has to break the curse that has made him wildly popular with single women: Sleep with Charlie once, and the next man you meet will be your true love.
Early thirty-something dentist Dr. Charlie Logan has never experienced true love, despite having had a number of girlfriends over the years. After an announcement by one of his ex-girlfriends as such at her wedding, Charlie gets a reputation as being a good luck charm. Every woman he has slept with has met and married her dream man immediately following. He is encouraged to exploit this reputation by his long time best friend, Dr. Stu Klaminsky, a sex obsessed, sex starved schlub who became a plastic surgeon just so that he could masturbate over the sight of women's breasts. Charlie doesn't want to be solely a stepping stone for women, which is how they end up treating him once he gains this reputation as a lucky charm, but rather one's true love. He believes the woman of his dreams is accident-prone Cam Wexler, who works as the penguin caretaker at the aquarium.

Good Luck Chuck contains many sex scenes with a lot of crude and gross humour at times. The film is pretty bad. Its starts off okay but then it just becomes crazy and the ridiculous stories pile up. It goes downhill when Charlie (Cook) gets untrue word from Stu (Fogler) that the hex is broken meaning that he can sleep with Cam (Alba) and she wont leave him. he then becomes a huge stalker and the film turns hard into a cheesy romantic film. The film really is only worth seeing for Jessica Alba and a few scenes of topless females. In general the film just isn't funny.
The story arc, which is really more of a story dot, doesn't even make sense. Why would any guy with an IQ greater than his inseam believe in a dumb curse? Since the consequences of striking out with the girl are the same as the consequences of not trying, why would Charlie spend a long section of the movie avoiding her (towards the middle to end)? And the cure for the curse turns out to have nothing to do with anything we've seen in the movie. Overall the film isn't funny and really not meant for everyone. I blame the marketing and trailers, completely misleading
