Just My Luck
25 June 2006 | by typhillSee all my reviews

Yay, another Lindsey Lohan movie. Honeslty I was curious about how this movie would end. It wasn't a complete disastrous movie.

The jokes were funny at times. They gave a few good laughs at times, but other times they tried to give jokes and just failed completely. The plot was....alright.....Guy has bad luck, girl has good luck, it switches, girl goes to find guy to get luck back.

The acting was bad at times. Lindsey Lohan isn't that bad of an actor, but the other people were horrible. At times her acting fell apart and at times it was good, she needs to keep it good and consistent.

Overall this was an okay movie, but nothing I'd see twice
