I should make clear that I'm not a fan of Dane Cook. I find his humor just rambling and well, un-funny. With that said, he does well in his role for this movie. Not great, but not bad.
Charlie Logan (Dane Cook) is a cursed man and has been since turning down the goth girl who desperately wanted him back in his younger (10 years old) school days. Anisha (goth girl) put a hex on Charlie so that whoever Charlie was with would find their own true love after being with Charlie, with that true love being the next person they went out with. Later in life word spreads that Charlie Logan is a lucky charm for women, and the women start almost literally throwing themselves at Charlie so that they could then go and find 'the one'.
Early on in the story we see Charlie at a wedding where he is being toasted as the lucky charm that helped the bride find her true love. At the same wedding a friend of the bride comes to sit at the same table as Charlie and we meet Cam (Jessica Alba). Will fate let these two be happy ever after, or is Charlie destined to spend the rest of his life making women happy as they get ready for find their true loves?

The Blu-ray version of the disc gets mixed reviews from me as well. It is yet another Blu-ray that doesn't offer the ability to bypass the previews (or at least definitely doesn't make it obvious how to do that).Read more ›
That is not to say that the premise is not promising. The titular Chuck is Charlie Logan (Cook), and, no, the film is not bothered by the fact that nobody calls him Chuck. Because of what happened during an adolescent game of Spin the Bottle, Charlie is cursed: any woman he loves will leave him and immediately find and marry the man of her dreams. As Charlie comes to realize his peculiar situation there is good news--women are throwing themselves at him in order to leap out of his bed and find the guy for them--and bad news--he meets Cam Wexler (Alba), who is cute, a klutz, and works with penguins, allowing the film to show how far the penguin fever of "...Read more ›

For a while it seemed like Jessica Alba was slated to be the next "IT" girl in Hollywood. She sure is cute enough which has now matured into a more adult sort of beauty. Read morePublished 16 days ago by Andy McKinney
