Just My Luck

Genre: Comedy, Romance; Starring: Lindsay Lohan, Chris Pine, Faizon Love, Missi Pyle; Director: Donald Petrie; Author: Amy B. Harris, I. Marlene King; Release Date Wide: 05/12/2006; Status: In Season; Runtime (in minutes): 103; MPAA Rating: PG-13; Distributor: 20th Century Fox Film Corporation

A super-peppy and glammed-up Lindsay Lohan (what a stretch, right?) stars in a tailor-made role: Ashley, the luckiest girl in the world. For her, luck is having rainy days suddenly turn sunny and is measured by pay-offs from scratch-off lottery tickets. Predictably, fortune slaps her big-time, as Ashley unknowingly passes her luck to a cursed band manager, Jake (Chris Pine), through a kiss. Billed as Lohan’s first bow in an adult role, the madcap situations in Just My Luck — a flooded apartment, broken mirrors, a freshly painted bench — result instead in a teenybopper slapstick comedy.

EXTRAS Include an unsatisfyingly brief featurette with the costume designer and screenwriters about creating the actors’ looks, and three marginally funny deleted scenes. Meanwhile, a longer segment on McFly, the British teen rock band featured in the film, goes behind-the-scenes to show how director Donald Petrie manipulated the rabid fans during filming.
