Just My Luck (2006)

TOMATOMETER

Average Rating: 3.7/10
Reviews Counted: 109
Fresh: 14
Rotten: 95

Critics Consensus: Just My Luck is a screwball rom-com that fails to take advantage of Lindsay Lohan's considerable charm. The film (along with Robert Altman's A Prairie Home Companion) marks the end of Lohan's teen queen phase as she begins playing characters that are older, but not necessarily wiser. Lohan's character is supposedly cursed with bad luck, though the movie confuses misfortune with plain stupidity, leading Lohan into a long series of silly and senseless physical gags.

Movie Info

Two people discover just how true the old adage "lucky in life, unlucky in love" can be in this romantic comedy. Ashley (Lindsay Lohan) has always been the sort of girl fortune smiles upon -- she's pretty, she has a great job, she had good friends, guys fall over themselves to ask her out, and she never has trouble getting a cab. Jake (Chris Pine), on the other hand, is not nearly so lucky -- he's clumsy and accident prone, things never seem to go his way, and he's just lost his job at a bowling … More

... a variation on Freaky Friday buffed with a bit of 13 Going on 30's yuppie-career-princess gloss.

A lazy spitballing session of karmic humor, hinged on the sort of generic rom-com contrivances that keep movies like these from ending at a reasonable time.

It's safe, competent and bland.

From my perspective, it's watchable, but barely, and nothing I would go out of my way to locate, even if going 'out of my way' represents using a remote control to change TV channels.

Word on the street -- we're not sure which street -- has it that Just My Luck is Lindsay Lohan's final teen comedy. If so, the timing couldn't be better.

even if it offers Lohan her first role as a grown-up, places her in a corporate New York, and contrives a scene in which she gets to wear a dress owned by Sarah Jessica Parker, the sex in this city never seems to get beyond first base.

The film can barely breathe beneath the non-stop barrage of low-comedy shtick.

One day Lohan will make movies for grown-ups, but this movie certainly isn't one of them.

Is this movie actively hoping people will hate it for being so stupid?

Entretenida parábola de que la vida puede ser tan blanca o negra como nosotros mismos queramos hacerla. Si no se ve con esta idea en mente, mejor evítela.

It's very difficult not to get on board with this quirky comedy.

The real rot is in the script.

Make your own luck and skip this twaddle.

Despite the Manhattan dating scene stuff, the PG certificate means there's not much sex in this city, but more than enough raunchy undertones to keep teenage girls happy.

Occasional funny moments but this is very very thin.

Empire Magazine

Fans of Lindsay Lohan's previous films will be pleased to learn that she's lost none of her comic timing and self-deprecating charm - she's extremely appealing here, even if she does need to rediscover the joys of food.

Yet another trite, gimmicky rom-com.

Shadows on the Wall

A totally predictable and competently made feelgood fantasy flick for females under 30. If you want an escape and rest your brain, try your luck

Conta com a distinção de ter sido produzido por ninguém menos do que Bruce Willis, o que me leva a crer que ele tenha batido a cabeça durante as filmagens de Sin City.

No amount of rabbit foot rubbing, four-leaf clovers or upturned horseshoes can save this often excruciating mess.

Just My Luck takes an intriguing idea and goes nowhere with it.

Three Movie Buffs

When I sat down to watch Donald Petrie's "Just My Luck," I was in the mood for a light comedy that would add sunshine to my lousy day. Instead, I was subjected to such mindless fluff that my mood just got worse.

[The scripters] apparently thought they were penning a romantic comedy when they were actually writing an ode to materialism.

Silly rom-com, although Pine and Lohan are quite charming.

Just My Luck, looks a interesting movie, that brings a charm by your characters and simple comedy. But show, an different side: more another one silly gags and bad screenplay with a terrible direction and teen romance. Rotten.

Ashley has led an easy life which all changes when she kisses Jake, at a masquerade ball. In the end she realizes that luck isn't everything & that she is in love with Jake. This was another adorable movie. Too bad Lindsay Lohan is all screwed up right now. Hopefully she'll turn around.
