critics consensus

Lucky Them may not quite live up to Toni Collette's bravura starring performance, but it's certainly elevated by it. Read critic reviews

    There are a lot of clichés present here, but thankfully the film knocks most of them down in the end to ensure it's main character doesn't have too happy of an ending. Collette's charming as ever and Haden Church gives one of his weirder performances (which I do mean as a compliment).

    Revisit your past. Rewrite your future. A very so so you might like it or not Film! The film feels like it makes some sudden stops and gos, with overly convenient plot turns, and a lot of side events that clutter the film, but don't quite seem to really add enough to the story to justify their inclusion, and there could've been a lot more included in there to flesh out Ellie's search for Matthew. I do like, though, that ultimately the film becomes more about if the search is worth it or not, or if ten years is long enough to let the past remain in the past or not. It's an interesting theme, and while I think the search isn't conducted consistently, thematically the film is always exploring if that search is worth it. More interested in partying and flirting with young musicians than work, veteran rock journalist Ellie Klug (Toni Collette) has one last chance to prove her value to her magazine's editor: a no-stone-unturned search to discover what really happened to long lost rock god Matthew Smith, who also happens to be her ex-boyfriend. Teaming up with an eccentric amateur documentary filmmaker (Thomas Haden Church in a delightful performance), Ellie hits the road in search of answers.
