Storyline

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 Huggo

Alternate Versions

For the R-rated theatrical release two scenes were removed from the sex collage but later reinstated in the unrated DVD version: (i) the holy lover who later meets her boyfriend and (ii) Megan Gillis who turns to be an old high school chum of Chuck who later had a sex change operation. Also the sex scenes for the redheaded and kitchen lovers were re-shot for the unrated DVD version which shows full frontal nudity. In the R-rated theatrical version they were wearing a blouse.

Stupid sex comedy, but has it's moments although very few. It's watchable.
2 November 2009 | by KineticSeoulSee all my reviews

There has been some good Rated R comedies, this isn't one of them. Chuck(Dane Cook) has a curse on him by some goth girl so every time he has sex with a girl, the girl finds the man of there dreams the next time they go on a date. Some may think of this as being lucky cause just about every girl wants to have sex with Chuck, but soon he comes across Cam Wexler(Jessica Alba) who is the girl of his dreams. Dane Cook plays a sweet guy that has respect for women, which I highly doubt he is in real life. Cause just about every girl in this movie is shallow and dumb, superstitious slut including Cam Wexler who is Jessica Alba's character. She tries to make her character seem clumsy, cute and a bit ditsy but she just comes across as clumsy, ditsy, dumb and a bit psychotic. Chuck is a dopey dentist and works in the same building as his best friend Stu(Dan Fogler). I never found Dan Fogler to be that funny and he tries to go with the gross humor in this one but just ends up being gross than funny and is a bit of a annoying character, which is okay if he is funny, but he is not funny. There is a scene in this film where it shows Dane Cook having sex with multiple girls since the screen gets split up into multiple section while he is performing the Kama Sutra, which was unique but not that tasteful. And the best scene in the whole movie besides the parts that show off Jessica Alba's assets is the scene where Dane Cook gets bit in the crotch by a penguin. I get the feeling that the creators knew that sex sells so they just tried to go with what they thought was going to be a big hit. Plus the jokes aren't even clever, they just throw in bunch of repulsive nonsense and expect the audience to laugh. Despite it having a lot of flaws it did somewhat have it's moments and was somewhat entertaining, but nothing is special about this film. With it's slapstick style humor and revolting sex jokes, which is cool if it was funny or at least amusing.

4.8/10
