Good Luck Chuck

Director: Mark Helfrich

Cast: Dane Cook, Elia English, Jessica Alba, Dan Fogler

Cert: 16

Somehow, with this comedy, you’re always looking for something more … a half-decent idea that hasn’t been properly developed.

Cook is the Charlie of the title, a man with an unfortunate gift: every time he beds a beautiful woman she instantly falls in love with somebody else. This gift of helping others find true love makes Chuck very popular with the ladies … though not because they desire him.

When he meets his own true love (Alba) the last thing he wants to do is sleep with her since she’ll instantly find somebody else.

There are some, though not nearly enough, good moments.

Star Rating: 2/5
