Good Luck Chuck Reviews

January 15, 2008
What isn't forgivable, though, is being boring, and Good Luck Chuck has all the engaging magnetism of an unflushed toilet.
November 9, 2007
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'.

Can we finally just admit that Dane Cook isn't funny?
Full Review | Original Score: F
September 25, 2007
This is an unoriginal, dull-witted, juvenile, crude, offensive, idiotic and pointless romantic comedy that makes no sense. None.
September 25, 2007
Good Luck Chuck is so undistinguished that it feels like an extended screen test.
September 22, 2007
If you're expecting something smart from Dane Cook, you're out of luck.
September 21, 2007
Good Luck Chuck looks like the unscreenable bits of bad movies best forgotten retrieved from the cutting-room floor.

It's all rather messy in lots of ways. Fortunately the appealing presence and physical comedy of Cook and Fogler fill a lot of holes that would otherwise just be dirty ditches.

It's worth mentioning for the third time that this movie is much closer to Caligula than Sleepless in Seattle.

Good Luck Chuck has laugh-out-loud moments, many more if you've never outgrown giggling at somebody saying a naughty word.

It's a sexed-up, dumbed-down Dr. T and the Women, with penguins to pacify women who've been railroaded into going to this movie by their loutish boyfriends.

The main audience for Good Luck Chuck wants to confront one of the central cultural questions of our time: Will Jessica Alba take her top off?

The sex jokes, all of them clammy and stale, are reminiscent not of Wedding Crashers but of an Eighth Avenue peep-show booth in 1979.

There's still time, but for now, Fogler gets my vote for the worst performance of the year.

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.

September 21, 2007
A desperately unfunny mix of romantic and gross-out comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
September 21, 2007
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.

Some of the audience seemed to be having fun, but for me it was like a Farrelly brothers gross-out without the laughs.
September 21, 2007
It's a good device either for science-fiction or romantic comedy. But since there's no intelligence to drive the jokes, the gimmick turns tiresome quick.

I'd like to be able to say they couldn't pay me to see this flick. Alas, it's apparent I can be bought, and pretty cheaply too.

Laughs are MIA in this month's comic raunchfest.
September 20, 2007
A movie that simultaneously squanders its leads and its DVD extras.
September 20, 2007
Cook has a nice comic personality but zilch in the way of comic material. But then, it's not as if any of those teenage boys are going to care about that.

There's an audience out there for this kind of thing, but if this is what passes for funny, what in the world of comedy doesn't qualify?

Does [Cook] want to lose the hip, smart 20- and 30-somethings his comedy routines are aimed for and become a sort of second-rate Adam Sandler attracting teenagers who giggle like Beavis and Butt-head at shots of naked women and disgusting jokes about sex?
September 20, 2007
The film is some sort of humor-deprivation experiment.

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