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
The song playing during the phone call montage is "I Love it When You Call" by The Feeling. The lyrics of the song continue "but you never call at all" but this doesn't fit with the theme of the montage when Cam and Chuck are constantly on the phone. Therefore, some of the lyrics are blanked out of the soundtrack, leaving several gaps. See more »
Cam works with African Penguins, warm weather birds that live on the coast of South Africa and Namibia. They would not live in a habitat with fake ice. See more »
What's a blowjob?
I have no idea. But I overheard my dad saying that he gets one once a year on his birthday, so it must be good.

Charlie (a.k.a. Chuck) becomes cursed at 10 years old by a girl of the same age, who secretly loved him. From there on, every woman that slept with him will automatically meet and marry the man of her dreams. He enjoyed this "situation" for quite a while until he met his own true love, but in order to keep her, he must undo this curse before it's too late.
I like the ideology of this movie, the whole part of Chuck being a lucky charm gives it something special. Furthermore, being presented as a comedy makes it even better (there are a lot of very funny moments in which I couldn't stop laughing) but unfortunately it lacks a bit of complexity making it often predictable which somehow spoils the enthusiasm, not to mention the ending which is rushed and comes "out of nowhere". Don't get me wrong, it's a good movie but leaves the impression that it could have been better!
