Its very premise is enough to have you reaching for the remote after ten minutes unless you're in the mood for breasts, dirty jokes and male chauvinism.

Good Luck Chuck has laugh-out-loud moments, many more if you've never outgrown giggling at somebody saying a naughty word.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Here is the dirty movie of the year, slimy and scummy, and among its casualties is poor Jessica Alba, who is a cutie and shouldn't have been let out to play with these boys.

The final screenplay is as devoid of real emotion as it is of real characters.

'Superbad' and 'Knocked Up' got the delicate balance just right for this kind of raunchfest. 'Chuck' apparently didn't get the memo.

It is the audience who will feel cursed.

The film is some sort of humor-deprivation experiment.

No doubt, the outtakes on the DVD release will prove useful for recovering sex addicts and in vomitoria.

Somebody please stop Dane Cook before he becomes a movie star.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

Tony-winner Dan Fogler, as Cook's childhood friend, is embarrassingly foul, and even criminally cute Jessica Alba is wasted, playing Cook's painfully clumsy gal pal/penguin nut in this alternately warm and ugly ball of whacks.

The only plausible scenario in this movie is the idea that a woman would be so annoyed by Dane Cook, she'd be willing to put a curse on him.

Whether or not you appreciate Dane Cook's spastic, hyperactive brand of observational humor, he cannot be held solely responsible for the unmitigated disaster that is 'Good Luck Chuck.'

You could probably make a good movie out of Good Luck Chuck's pitch; that just didn't happen here. And I like a good, funny, smutty comedy; the problem is that Good Luck Chuck is a bad, unfunny smutty comedy.

Houston Chronicle
September 21, 2007
First-time director Mark Helfrich brings a ham-fisted insistence on the obvious and a tendency to overstate raunchy humor until the raunch becomes a bore.

Good Luck Chuck is so undistinguished that it feels like an extended screen test.
Top Critic

Ebert & Roeper
September 25, 2007
This is an unoriginal, dull-witted, juvenile, crude, offensive, idiotic and pointless romantic comedy that makes no sense. None.

There is nothing good about this Luck.

If I had a choice between suffering through a Dane Cook film or the outtakes from Carrot Top's Chairman of the Board, I'd go with the latter.

A transparent excuse for a constant parade of topless females eager to assume a compromising position. The only thing missing was a cheesy porn soundtrack.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
Eric D. Snider
September 22, 2007
It casts aside all ambitions for cleverness or wit and instead focuses just on being crass. There's no fun in that unless you're a 13-year-old boy.
