Good Luck Chuck
2007, ****, Comedy
Okay, so we have a dentist named Charlie Logan (Cook, "Simon Sez," "Employee of the Month) who was cursed from the time he played spin the bottle, back in the 80s as a boy. He spins and gets a Goth wannabe girl...she puts a "hex" on him that he would never be happy, due to his lack of interest in making out with her. This is the funniest opening scene I have watched in years! Then we fast forward a bit, Charlie is in his 30s and still hasn't been in love, hence the curse or "hex" if you will.
Present day, Charlie is dumped by his current blonde bombshell Carol (Chelan Simmons, "Final Destination 3") and he soon realizes...along with the help from his friend the Boob Dr. Stu (Dan Fogler, "Balls of Fury") that the curse is real. But here's the catch, all sorts of women want to sleep with Charlie, since he's rumored to be the key to the man of their dreams, or at least someone better. In the heat of his predicament, Charlie begins to fall hard for Kam Wexler, (Alba, "Honey," "Idle Hands," "Sin City") a girl who is obsessed with penguins. He believes she is the "one" for him.
Will Charlie continue to go for the gold; having sex for pleasure, or will he find a way to make it work between his new love interest that he believes is true love? This film is crazy, but I must warn you, if you don't like crude humor, then don't watch it. Cook and Alba are a goofy pair, in this semi-slap stick, humor filled movie. Yes, some of it, well, I'm lying...most of it is crude...most guys will like it! This film is a must buy!
