Good Luck Chuck is a 2007 romantic comedy by director Mark Helfrich, starring Dane Cook and Jessica Alba. Dentist Charlie Kagan (Dane Cook) has suffered from an unusual curse since the young age of 10, when a scorned Goth girl put a hex on him for refusing to kiss her in a game of spin the bottle. And now, at 25 years old, he is still plagued in matters of love'every woman he sleeps with will find true love with the very next guy after him. Sure his reputation as a good luck charm means his pool of options for one night stands and quickies never runs dry, but it also means that his hopes of settling down with the right girl are pretty much not going to happen. When he falls for the sweet Cam Wexler (Jessica Alba) things get a little tricky. He likes her, but if he does anything with her, the curse will come into effect and she'll leave him'so what should he do? Good Luck Chuck is a fun romantic comedy with a fresh plot and strong acting.moreless

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    Here is the dirty movie of the year, slimy and scummy, and among its casualties is poor Jessica Alba, who is a cutie and shouldn't have been let out to play with these boys.
