The story is in the same spirit as "Revenge of the Nerds" and Bill the towelboy falls for Krissi the cheerleader. In his way stands Krissi's mom, the jocks and society itself.
Classic scenes include a tennis racket being inserted in someone's rectum and Bill being shrunken and ending up inside Krissi's panties.
This movie was played on TV back in the day and then lost for what seemed to be forever. But the Troma team are reviving it and giving it the release it deserves.
Special features include a hilarious and informative story about the making of Getting Lucky from writer/director Michael Paul Girard.
I should mention a couple of pluses: the story nicely adheres to some traditional morality, and (out of nowhere) the film includes a horseback mounted barbarian. For what purpose, you ask? I have no idea, but it seemed funny at the time. All that can be said of this film is that you will pass 90 minutes of your life without having to think too hard. It was probably perfect for late night TV in the dorms.
And it's Troma.
That's all you really need to know. This movie is raunchy and funny as all hell, and anyone who can appreciate Llyod Kaufman's sense of humor should buy this.
To sum up the plot, nerdy Bill wants to save the environment, make enough cash to go to college and date a hot cheerleader. When he finds an alcoholic leprechaun in a beer bottle while recycling all his dreams start to come together. Kind of. Mostly. In a round about way. The plot runs from the absurd to the banal. Plenty of jokes were more relevant when this movie was made, but that's to be expected. It's funny enough to keep the viewers interest.
What's great about Getting Lucky is that there's more to it than just jokes about trying to get into a cheerleader's pants. Yes, this is a sex comedy, with very little nudity, and some seriously funny scenes. The ending has to be seen to be believed. Getting Lucky is one of my favorite low budget flicks ever. If you're a B movie fan, you won't be disappointed.
