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. Cam initially doesn't want to date Charlie because of his reputation as a one-night stand type of guy. Charlie in turn ... Written by
This is the worst movie of 2007. The premise was so completely overdone that after 15 minutes into the movie I was completely bored with the idea. After 30 minutes I convinced myself to keep watching to see if it would get better or worse (out of morbid curiosity). After 35 minutes I had to turn it off. For a romantic comedy I thought the basic premise sounded pretty funny and I used to like Jessica Alba. But the problem with this movie is that it is a one liner- the guy who is a lucky charm for women to meet their match after dating Chuck. A lot of movies are one liners but what makes this one terrible is that has no depth. It simple reiterates the premise over and over again until the viewer is losing their will to live or at least keep their eyes open. This is the most superficial, irritating, simple minded, and poorly acted/written movies I have ever seen. I wish Jessica Alba wouldn't have gotten involved in this project. I thought she had more potential yet she is taking terrible roles and doesn't have enough talent to pull movies like this one out of trash bin (few actresses would). The way the script makes her constantly trip all over everything is another excruciating aspect of this film. Do not waste your time.
