Movie Info

When Valerie Highsmith (Sheila Kelley) goes missing in Mexico, it isn't too surprising, as she is generally acknowledged as having the worst luck in the world. What is surprising is that veteran investigator Raymond Campanella (Danny Glover) can't find her. Then an executive at Valerie's father's company has the idea to send Proctor (Martin Short) from accounting along with Raymond. Proctor, it turns out, also possesses terrible luck -- and is sure to tumble into the same mess Valerie did.

    Silly and sometimes very slapstick. Pure Luck, bring again the comedy style of Veber and the looney of Short. A guilty pleause.

    Martin Short was one of my favorites when I saw this film, so I have good associations with it. HOwever I cannot stand the sight of him anymore, so... but he does get stung by bees, fall off waterfalls, and other zany problems that make it worth seeing.

    Pure Luck is about the unluckiest man in the world (Martin Short) who's hired to find the unluckiest woman in the world who's gone missing. He just thinks he was hired due to his smarts, when the theory is that their bad luck will some how bring them together. The plot is as silly as it sounds, yet I always liked the movie. It has it's share of charm and Short and Glover are likable together. It's also occasionally pretty damn funny.

    Yet another low concept farce from Martin Short who seems to have spent his entire career being cast by directors who couldn't afford Steve Martin. Difficult to hate in the same way the testcard or a potato is.
