This week's reviewed movie is:
Good Luck Chuck




Gene the Barber

Snick the Sidekick

Gordie the Barber


There's not many movies I can't find a few good things going for, but Good Luck Chuck shut me down cold turkey.

I even found myself wanting to upchuck at times.

Without going into details, it's a desperately unfunny mix of romantic and grossed-out pornographic comedy that might send any unfortunate viewer in search of electro-shock therapy for a thorough mental cleansing.

Complicated plotting bogs down the slapstick that might have been as Jessica Alba meets Dane Cook in Good Luck Chuck. A man who believes he is cursed finally dates the girl of his dreams, only to find out she's a klutz.

It's half-baked romance at best, with gross-out humor at its worst.

The star plays a dentist named Chuck with an unusual curse and powers over women.

When the word gets out at the office, the ladies line up to bed Chuck for good luck, because it seems that girls marry the man they sleep with after they sleep with him.

I found the story to be not feasible or realistic.

The lead actor had so many sex scenes that it led him to look for a trainer.
