DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Romantic Drama - Contrary to the advertising, this is not a frothy Drew Barrymore romance but a serious father-son poker drama in which the actress has a fairly small supporting role. This is one for older viewers interested in the game of poker.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Lucky You isn't Hanson's best movie but it's a respectable effort and deserves more of a chance to be seen than the one it's getting.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average Lucky You starts off promisingly, then grows as lifeless as a poker face.

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 39 moviegoers:"Spiderman 3" pretty much sucked up all the opening weekend moviegoers so we weren't able to collect very many opinions for this movie. Unfortunately, the opinions are very mixed. Close to half of the adult females truly enjoyed "Lucky You" rating it "Very Good," or higher. Most of the remaining opinions are "Good," which indicates an average movie. Quite a few rated it below average. The few male opinions were very similar to the female opinions. Overall, these are decent opinions since most thought it was, at least, an average or better movie, but I would suggest a lower priced matinee, just in case.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Billie Offer (Drew Barrymore) is a young singer from Bakersfield with more heart than talent. Huck Cheever (Eric Bana) is a poker player whose emotions at the table often undermine his exceptional skill, especially when he is heads up with his father, poker legend L.C. Cheever (Robert Duvall). The one aptitude Billie and Huck seem to share is a knack for reading people—the difference is what they do with that gift. While Huck's instincts enable him to take advantage of his opponents at the poker table and expertly avoid both emotional connections and long-term commitments in his personal life, Billie uses her intuition to see the emotional truth of those around her and sympathize with their pain. When these two meet, the real game begins. If Huck is going to win Billie's heart, he must learn to play cards the way he has been living life and live his life the way he has been playing cards.
