Can we finally just admit that Dane Cook isn't funny? In a comedy so lame its plot could've been swiped from a Bazooka Joe wrapper, Cook plays a dentist with a curse: Each girl he dates winds up marrying the next guy she dates after him. Jessica Alba, who you'd think would know better, plays the klutzy dream girl who makes Cook's jackass want to be a better man. Good Luck Chuck won't do Alba's career any favors. But who knows? By the film's own harebrained logic, maybe her next costar will be someone who can actually act. F
