JUST MY LUCK

DVD Review by David Blackwell

DETAILS: 103 minutes, three deleted scenes, two featurettes

STUDIO: 20th Century Fox/ New Regency/ Cheyenne Enterprises

RELEASE DATE: 8-22-2006

I wonder what BLADE RUNNER replicant Roy Batty would have thought of this movie. JUST MY LUCK is another movie where Lindsay Lohan is coasting on her good looks and playing the same character she played before. She is Ashley, the luckiest girl in Manhattan who happens to work for a PR firm, but her luck changes when she kisses a guy cursed with bad luck. So she searches for him to get her mojo back while he is having some great luck for once. JUST MY LUCK is an entertaining formula comedy, but it will never be a classic. It almost comes off at times as a promotion for the band called McFly. I just wonder when Linsay Lohan will stretch her acting muscles and do something different than comedies. JUST MY LUCK is a by the numbers comedy where role reversal is involved and the two opposite ends of luck fall for each other. It has many cliches and it is predictabale fare.

VIDEO: 1.85:1 (Anamorphic Widescreen)/ 1.33:1 (Full Frame)

Yep, it is a dreaded flipper.

AUDIO: English 5.1 Dolby Digital, French 2.0 DS, Spanish 2.0 DS

Subtitles: English, Spanish

SPECIAL FEATURES: The extras are few. The LOOK OF LUCK on side A is a very brief featurette on the costumes of the movie. Side B plays more attention to behind-the-scenes of shooting the McFly concert sequence. The real meat of the extras are the three funny deleted scenes on side A. The sushi restraunt scene was my favorite.

FINAL ANALYSIS: If you're looking for a harmless comedy, JUST MY LUCK is your ticket. Other than that, it might just be a rental to others.
