Well, this is definitely a disappointment.

If you adored The Full Monty so resoundingly that you're dying to see the same old thing in a tired old setting, then this should keep you reasonably entertained.

Overall, it's good, not great. This is a pleasant enough but small English romantic comedy.

The end result is like cold porridge with only the odd enjoyably chewy lump.

The formulaic script, stocked with not one truly menacing inmate, echoes far too many sentimental post-Full Monty imports.
May 31, 2002
A prison comedy that never really busts out of its comfy little cell.

If The Full Monty was a freshman fluke, Lucky Break is [Cattaneo] sophomore slump.
May 13, 2002
It's what the Brits themselves might call fair to middling.
April 26, 2002 adorably whimsical comedy that deserves more than a passing twinkle.

Nothing more than a widget cranked out on an assembly line to see if stupid Americans will get a kick out of goofy Brits with cute accents performing ages-old slapstick and unfunny tricks.
April 24, 2002
A pleasing but routine British comedy set in an English prison.
April 24, 2002
No worse a film than Breaking Out, and Breaking Out was utterly charming.

While we can forgive Cattaneo for succumbing to temptation, we must also damn him and screenwriter Ronan Bennett (Face) for failing to attempt to improve on the original idea.

The intent is almost exactly the same [as The Full Monty]. All that's missing is the spontaneity, originality and delight.
