What to know
A shortage of laughs and an undercurrent of mean-spiritedness undermine Good Luck Chuck, squandering a decent premise on gross-out humor and shopworn slapstick. Read critic reviews

What isn't forgivable, though, is being boring, and Good Luck Chuck has all the engaging magnetism of an unflushed toilet.January 15, 2008 | Full Review…
Crude, vulgar and dispiriting to watch.November 9, 2007 | Rating: 1/5

Cross the street to avoid this one.
An unpleasant sex romp of the kind Robin Askwith made in the 1970s.
The script is so reliant on wish-fulfillment it forgets to add those important little touches: you know, wit, sincerity, characterisation, that kind of thing... A very cheap shot - and hardly anyone calls him 'Chuck'.
Audience Reviews for Good Luck Chuck
Jun 13, 2013A man falls in love just as he realizes that all his exes immediately find happy relationships after they date him. I find the premise of this film interesting and engaging. However, the execution leaves much to be desired. Rather than crafting a character who has some special insight or unique effect that allows his girlfriends to be emotionally prepared for a real relationship, the film resorts to some voodoo bullshit and devolves into a cliche sex comedy. There are a few moments when Charlie seems to have depth, but throughout most of the film his as plastic as Dane Cook's comedy act. Cam's character also deserves comment. She serves as a vessel for male interest. And that's all. She has quirks, demonstrated by her klutziness, but she's only klutzy when there's a bit; at all other times, Jessica Alba plays her as cute girl with a confidence and charm that belies the rest of the character. So as often happens, women in romantic comedies are devoid of personality, reduced to objects of male desire. Overall, this film could have been so good in the right hands, but it's not.Jim H Super Reviewer
Apr 03, 2013Good Luck Chuck is a bad comedy that has a few minor laughs, but ultimately fails in being an effective comedy. Dane Cook is a horrible comedian, and aside from his minor role in Waiting is definitely not funny. This film lacks anything original, interesting and truly entertaining. I found that this film was peppered with clichés and a poor plot, not to mention a bad cast. This is a film that is not worth seeing, and you'd be better off watching something else. Dane Cook's career as a comedian is a mess and he is one of the worst comedians that I have seen. He was humorous in Waiting, and aside from that, he never did anything worth seeing. His routine is just stupid gimmicks where he makes irritating noises. It's no wonder the guy fails as an actor, his delivery just doesn't cut it, and it becomes tiresome. Good Luck Chuck was a painful experience to sit through and in the long run, it is a highly forgettable film that is probably now sold in bargain bins. This might have been a film that could have worked if the cast would have been better, and it definitely needed a script rewrite with emphasis on writing better jokes. Dane Cook sucks and this film proves it yet again. The film like I said only has minor laughs, with most of the jokes falling flat and are unfunny to begin with. Skip this pointless, uninteresting comedy; you'll be glad you did. Good Luck Chuck is a horrible film that just doesn't deliver the comedy goods that a film with this sort of idea.Alex r Super Reviewer
Jun 23, 2011One of the best romcoms ever made! Dane Cook is amazing! He's so hilarious and Jessica Alba thrives off him. A must see!Bethany M Super Reviewer
