DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - CAUTION!!! THIS IS NOT THE STANDARD ROMANTIC COMEDY IT APPEARS TO BE! It is EXTREMELY SEXUAL and VERY GRAPHIC! Throughout the movie one of the male characters gets sexually nasty and gross. When it's not sexual, it's pretty much what you expect it to be, a cute and funny romantic comedy.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average The movie is coarse and features a romance, but the laughs are sporadic at best and there's no spark between the male and female leads.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Poor 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.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 113 moviegoers:
TEENS:Males loved this movie (or they loved the very high sexual content). Females also loved "Good Luck Chuck." HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Male reviews are extremely high on the high end but there are a few who only rated it as average or below average. Female reviews are very similar. A very high percentage absolutely loved this movie, but a fair number weren't too impressed. From the comments it appears the somewhat low reviews, from both males and females, were due to the high sexual content.
ADULTS:DRASTIC drop in the reviews compared to the other age groups. Only about 40% of the males and 20% of the females enjoyed this movie. Most reviews came in as average to below average with quite a few even lower. Again, the very strong sexual content is likely the main reason the reviews are so low. If the sexual content doesn't bother you then you may enjoy "Good Luck Chuck." I'd recommend a matinee just to be safe.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
It all started when Charlie Logan was ten years old. Breaking the cardinal rules of spin-the-bottle, Charlie refused to lip-lock with a demented Goth girl - and she put a hex on him. Now, twenty-five years later, Charlie (Dane Cook) is a successful dentist…and still cursed. While his plastic surgeon best friend, Stu (Dan Fogler), pursues as many of his patients as possible, Charlie can't seem to find the right girl. Even worse, he discovers at an ex-girlfriend's wedding that every woman he's ever slept with has found true love - with the next guy after him. Before he knows it, Charlie's reputation as a "good luck charm" has women - from sexy strangers to his overweight receptionist - lining up for a quickie. But a life filled with all sex and no love has Charlie lonelier than ever - that is, until he meets Cam (Jessica Alba). An accident-prone penguin specialist, Cam is as hard-to-get as she is beautiful. But when a genuine romance develops, Charlie realizes he's got to find a way to break his good-luck curse…before the girl of his dreams winds up with the next guy she meets.
