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.
While visiting his hometown during Christmas, a man comes face-to-face with his old high school crush whom he was best friends with -- a woman whose rejection of him turned him into a ferocious womanizer.
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 movie actually has the same plot as the 1962 Sudanese novel "The Wedding of Zein" written by Tayeb Salih, yet the movie's credits never acknowledge the novel. See more »

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.

Okay, I thought that this movie was going to be extremely crude from what my friends told me. Honestly, it wasn't really that bad, I laughed and enjoyed it; it wasn't Dumb and Dumber, but it was pretty good. I don't know why Richard Roper said it was extremely crude and terrible, he's stupid if you ask me. Now there was a lot more sex then I expected, but if you can handle that montage of sex scenes, then you will enjoy the rest of the movie. It was better than Superbad, I'll tell you that much, I liked it and I hope that some people will give it a chance, rather than listen to Roper and not see it. This movie is for mature viewers, that I agree with, but it is not one of the worst movies of 2007.
