Good Luck Chuck

Received[1.5]  out of 4 stars

Good Luck Chuck turns out to not be so good. Starring the comical Dane Cook and the beautiful Jessica Alba you would think you have struck a gold mine, but oh how wrong. Jessica is Cam Wexler, a huge klutz who meets Charlie (Dane) at a friend's wedding. Charlie is the old boyfriend of the bride. He is instantly drawn to this awkward girl and wants to get to know her; unfortunately he is unable to make his move at the wedding. After the wedding Charlie aka Chuck learns he is becoming an urban legend. He is becoming the guy everyone wants to "hook up" with in an attempt to find their true love. In his previous relationships, the girls he has been with have found their true love after him.

After learning of his good fortune he decides to make the lives of these women better by assisting them with their hopes of finding true love, in the mean time missing out on his own. Eventually, Chuck is reunited with Cam. After several accidents and rejections, Cam finally agrees to a date with Chuck. The two have instant chemistry, but at the same time become a train wreck waiting to happen. Not wanting to curse himself and loose this wonderful girl Chuck avoids Cam and hopes to resolve this urban legend once and for all.

The plot for this movie was a good idea; however the way it was played out was disturbing. During the comical stints I did not know if I should laugh or be completely insulted. This movie pushed the envelope on offensiveness. I was amazed at how many scenes Dane Cook was half nude. I felt like I needed to ask him to put his clothes on a little more and concentrate on the comedy. Chuck's side-kick, Stu (Dan Fogler) was a complete waste. I found most of his scenes vulgar. Jessica played your average head over heels; I am so cute and clumsy role, nothing special. There were some minimal good laughs, but overall this film is highly overrated as a romantic comedy. 1.5 out of 4 stars. You too will find yourself saying, "Better luck next time Chuck."
