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
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 »
When Cam runs into the pole while she and Charlie are walking, the fake pole wobbles and gives when she bumps into it. 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.

I really do not understand why I have been seeing so many bad reviews about this one. In my opinion, it is by far one of the most original pseudo-romantic comedies ever~ Not to mention, it was really hilarious. Everyone I knew who watched it really liked it..
I reckon Cook played his role well and hes that sorta character that grows in u. Jessica Alba on the other hand, is hot as usual !! Many of their jokes, yes, i agree some are crude, but If you're in for a good laugh regardless of any morality standings or any crap like that, I promise its money well spent.
You'll come out of the cinema feeling light hearted and happy.. Beware though, it has jokes which are very funny to most people but downright offensive and idiotic to some others - particularly, (no offense meant) over-weight, unattractive women.
Well, either way, I guess the viewers should just watch the movie with an open mind and not take it too seriously. After all, its meant to be a crude comedy. Its given an R rating as well, so u have been warned ! =)
