Movie Review: Good Luck Chuck

After watching Good Luck Chuck, I learned that Jessica Alba was nominated as Worst Actress of 2007 for her performance in this movie and that the leads Alba and Dane Cook were nominated for the Worst Screen Couple for 2007 at the Razzies.

How did that happen?

Well, it's really much of a shocker once you watch the film. Good Luck Chuck is a slapstick comedy that offers gross out humor and obviously wants to draw the young male demographic. Expect jokes on female breast augmentation surgery, promiscuity and, surprisingly, abstinence.

I totally agree with the Razzie nomination for Jessica Alba. Although she has yet to display sufficient acting talent in any of her movies, this movie is like tasting a bad burger in a fastfood place-- you're not expecting much, but this is just too awful. (And I thought Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer set a new acting low for Alba).

No doubt that the movie does have funny moments, but if you're not part of the movie's target's audience good luck with enjoying Good Luck Chuck.


Rating: 1.5/5
