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.

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

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.

Film Journal International

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?

Audience Reviews for Just My Luck


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

Super Reviewer

I loved this film! McFly were amazing and the storyline was different than a average chick flick!

Bethany Murphy

Super Reviewer

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.
