Editorial Reviews

If you really want to know a man, just ask his ex-girlfriends. Brad Hunt, Harland Williams (Dumband Dumber) and Lauren Graham ("Gilmore Girls") star in this goofy romantic comedy that finallyreveals what women really want and what men really need.For Zach (Hunt), breaking up isn't hard to dohe's already done it a dozen times. But when his childhood crush Abbey (Graham) decidesto move to New York, Zach realizes that he's about to lose the only girl he's ever truly loved. Now, with the help of his hilarious best friend, Bleckman (Williams), Zach has just three days to question all 12 of his ex-girlfriends. It's the only way to learn where he went wrongand finally get it rightbefore the love of his life becomes unlucky number 13!

Anyone could take the premise of this story and make a decent film out of it - anyone except director Chris Hall, apparently. I really don't know what to make of Lucky 13; it's a romantic comedy with very little romance or comedy. It plods along, basically emotionless and lethargic, meandering all over the place like a distracted child. You wait for the ending, sure that you'll finally find a payoff for all the torturous buildup. Nope - just more frustration. Maybe it's just me, but the ending of this film doesn't even make sense. If there's a point to all this, it must be about as sharp as a plastic knife.

Zach Baker (Brad Hunt) is a loser from a dysfunctional family. All of his life, the girl-next-door has been Abbey (Gilmore Girls' Lauren Graham), and Zach seems perfectly content hanging out with her and his best buddy Bleckman (Harland Williams) - until Abbey announces that she is going to New York to pursue her art (in the company of a ridiculously transparent "artist"). Zach has only three days to try and convince Abbey to stay. Bleckman, one of the most pathetic characters I've seen in a long time, and Zach's family tell him Abbey's out of his league (who isn't?), but Zach's determined to try. The plan he comes up with is to talk to his former girlfriends to find out his shortcomings in the dating department. How this guy has ever had twelve girlfriends, I will never know. They're some strange ones, though, that's for sure. For some reason, none of the girls tells him that the Greatest American Hero called and wants his hair back, but Zach finally does something about the old mop in preparation for his big date on the eve of Abbey's departure - unfortunately, he goes from bad to worse by choosing an Owen Wilson 'do.

2.0 out of 5 stars Unlucky June 24, 2005
The beginning of Lucky 13 reminded me of two other independent films that I had enjoyed: the French movie "Amelie" and "Garden State." I was ready for a fun, artsy film.

There is, however, a fine line between "creative and artsy" and "stupid and weird." I can't imagine what the makers of Lucky 13 were thinking when they produced this dull monstrosity. Nor can I imagine how, when they viewed the finished product, they still allowed it to be sent out to the public.

Lucky 13 was boring, to put it bluntly. The characters? Two dimensional wack jobs. The main character, Zach Baker, reminded me of a block of wood with a bird's nest on top. Lauren Graham, whom I had high hopes for, did a mediocre job but was still by far the best character. The plot? Unimaginative (to say the least), slow moving, and badly resolved. Even if we step aside from the unrealistic search for Zach's 12 girlfriends, we find ourselves extremely skeptical that he ever HAD 12 girlfriends to begin with. Without looks, money, or personality...but then, when we see the girls he's gone out with (all mentally or physically deranged), we begin to understand.

Even the music for Lucky 13 left much to be desired. However, there is one compliment I can pay to the film: it was short, barely topping an hour. So even if the movie itself is a complete waste of time, at least it's not a complete waste of a lot of time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Comedy that makes one think. August 8, 2005
This is a growing up, lighthearted comedy/romance film. And as the saying goes, behind a great joke or a funny story, therein lies a part of the underlying truth.

The acting wasn't so bad; actually the actors nestled into their roles effectively. Harland Williams (Bleckman) enlivens the part as Zach's funny friend. GILMORE GIRLS' Lauren Graham (as Abbey) shines through, and one's left with wanting to see more of her. Brad Hunt (as Zach Baker) played up to his wooden role, a growing up boy who's imaginary friend was the "Coolmint Girl" (Playboy's PMOY Brande Roderick) as the searching for answers protagonist which became the 'raison d'etre' of this funny movie. But there were some serious undertones behind the comedy. One just had to see through it. The married life of Zach Bakers parents for one, is a case in point. People should do well to observe it, and find out why despite his mother's making constant fun of her simple-living and 'boring' husband, the marriage lasted for 27 years. (Not very many people can say that!) Is this a fun case of forbearance and love? Is it perhaps the reason why Zach was treading carefully to get to where he is to emulate his parents and enjoy the fruits of a stable married life?

What about Zach's sister Sarah? (effectively played by Kaley Cuoco). Anybody who's experienced having a sister (or a daughter) who's constantly putting one down can commiserate with the storyline. And the selection of music from the 80's was superb. It blended well with the comedy. The story was credible to begin with.

2.0 out of 5 stars er, was this a completed movie? June 5, 2007
*Lucky 13* was surprisingly boring. At first, it looked like it was going to be a cute romantic comedy. Not! In fact, about halfway, I got pretty bored with it and started acting silly. I just could not wait for the movie to end!

The girl next door, Abbey, announces that she's moving to NYC for her artist debut. Zack, the guy next door, realizes that he has had his chances since childhood to ask Abbey out.

Zack works up the nerve to ask Abbey out on a date. The date is to be the night before she moves. So, this leaves all weekend for Zack to round up his 12 ex-girlfriends and ask them how he can improve for this special girl.

His girlfriends are just plain weird. One is a stuttering Scandinavian, one is an older woman who was once his babysitter, one is just psychotic who can't get over the break-up, etc.

It looked like it could've been a good movie. However, the last 30 minutes of it looked like the director freaked out on how to close the movie. The closing was just a lousy job! In fact, there was no closing. It just abruptly ended.

You can tell this was a cheap production. One hint was that Zack takes Abbey out to a fancy restaurant. The chairs used for this restaurant are definitely not the kind you'd see in those particular restaurants. These chairs are something you'd see at an AA meeting or in a hotel conference room. The flooring...another hint of a cheap production. So, naturally, the storyline was just cheap and unfinished.
