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

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.

Although I did find this movie funny in a goofy, vulgar, and unexpectedly shocking way ... it was not at all what I thought it would be. The amount of nudity and vulgar language took me by surprise ... especially since the synopsis and previews supporting this film made it seem like a mainstream romantic comedy. WARNING - DO NOT TAKE YOUR PARENTS TO THIS MOVIE OR TEENAGERS WHO CAN'T HANDLE PROFANITY - YOU WILL BE EMBARRASSED.
However, I thought the lead actor - Dane Cook - did a great job in this movie. He was funny, charismatic, and visually enjoyable to watch. He pretty much was the main reason I stuck around till the end. Jessica Alba, on the other hand, was disappointing. She just can't seem to pull off the innocent, sweet, klutzy girl next door.
