Audience Reviews for Pure Luck

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

A very silly Martin Short comedy that I loved when it came out.

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.

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.
