Good Luck Chuck

Genre: Romance, Comedy; Starring: Jessica Alba, Dane Cook; Director: Mark Helfrich; Author: Josh Stolberg; Release Date Wide: 09/21/2007; Runtime (in minutes): 96; MPAA Rating: R; Distributor: Lions Gate Films

Charlie Logan (Dane Cook) is a relationship rabbit’s foot: After sleeping with Chuck, women get hitched to the next guy they date. But when klutzy Cam (Jessica Alba) charms him, Logan’s loath to work his love-her-and-leave-her magic. Good Luck Chuck aims for laughs with pratfalls and gross-out humor, but viewers looking for funny are out of luck. EXTRAS If Cook is going to drool over Alba in a commentary, shouldn’t she be there to zing back? The best of the lame Jessica-less extras is a sex-scene grid showing the ways Cook had to ”panto-bang” during filming. D+
