Just My Luck | 2006 | PG-13 | - 4.4.4

Lindsey Lohan stars as a young woman who has been very lucky and successful all her life. One night however she transfers her luck to a young man (Chris Pine) she kisses at a costume party, and she's saddled with his rotten luck. Now she must find him and kiss him again before her charmed life becomes a complete mess. Also with Samaire Armstrong, Bree Turner and Faizon Love. Directed by Donald Petrie. [1:48]

SEX/NUDITY 4 - A man kisses a woman's neck, he pulls open her top (we see her from the side and nothing else is evident), she pushes him back onto a couch, lies on top of him and the scene ends (it is suggested that they have sex). A woman squeezes a man's buttock a few times and makes a remark about it being firm.
 A young man and a young woman kiss in several scenes. A young man and a young woman kiss, and a girl interrupts them and accuses them of playing "tonsil hockey." A young man and a young woman kiss while dancing. A young woman kisses many men whom she does not know (she complains that one bit her tongue). A young man and a young woman lean close together and nearly kiss but are interrupted. A man and a woman rub noses.
 Young women wear low-cut tops that reveal cleavage as well as bare backs and shoulders throughout the movie. A young woman wears a low-cut camisole and short pedi pants, and a young woman's dress tears revealing her bare hip and panties. Young women wear short skirts that reveal bare thighs in several scenes. A young man takes off his shirt, he is bare-chested briefly and a young woman admires him, and a man's pants fall down around his ankles (we see his bare knees and boxer shorts). Several men and a woman wearing body stockings dance with fluid movements.
 A "fortune teller" tells a man and a woman that the cards say that they are "lovers."
 A young woman talks about having kissed a young man on a date. A woman tells a young man that she is going to an "erotic massage class." We hear that a man is a paid escort. Song lyrics talk about "My goodies." A woman asks, "Where's my bun?" and a young man asks "She has a bun in the oven?" (the reference is to a hairpiece). A young woman reads a horoscope and says, "Your moon is in Uranus."
 A young man looks over bathroom stall doors trying to find someone.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A cab swerves toward a sidewalk where people stand, a young man shoves another man out of the way of the cab, but he's then struck himself, thrown on the hood of the car and then onto the sidewalk (he is uninjured).
 In two scenes in a jail cell a woman punches a young woman in the face, and a young man punches another young man in the arm. A woman runs into a young man, they both fall down, and she struggles to get him off her, but his pants fall down; she thinks he is trying to molest her, she yells and kicks him in the crotch, and he runs away while being chased by a police officer.
 A young woman's hair gets caught in a blow dryer, she struggles with it, hits a mirror breaking it, the dryer bursts into flames and she drops it in a bathtub and turns on the water -- the power shorts out and the building goes dark. A young woman is shocked badly while trying to change a light bulb. A young man falls back off a chair and shorts out speaker equipment (sparks fly but he is uninjured).
 A young woman gags on an olive, and another young woman gives her the Heimlich maneuver and she spits the olive out. A young woman throws salt over her shoulder, the salt hits a man in the eyes, he yells and falls back over a table, and she runs away.
 A young woman is trapped in a rainstorm, her umbrella blows inside out, and lightning hits the umbrella after the young woman tosses it in the garbage.
 A young man is struck in the eye with a guitar string that breaks (he's OK). A young woman trips and falls into a mound of mud (it's a sculpture). A young woman slams into a glass door, steps back and shakes it off. A young woman is struck in the head with a champagne cork. A young man and a young woman bump their heads together.
 A young man is tackled by a police officer, and he is pushed to the ground and handcuffed. A young man is carried out of a party by security.
 A young man is nearly hit by a cyclist and then nearly hit by a car in the street. A young woman is splashed by two cars that go through puddles on the street, and a young man is splashed by a cab driving through a puddle.
 Many people are trapped on an elevator for a while. A young man bends over to pick up a coin and he rips his pants. A young woman's shoe heel breaks off and she stumbles. A girl opens a soda can and is sprayed with soda. A washing machine overflows, and a young woman and a young man slip on the bubbles.
 A bird defecates on a young man's shoulder (we see the goo). Two young men vomit in trash cans (we hear gagging). A young woman peels chewed gum off the bottom of a table and the gum falls on her (one piece lands in her mouth). A young woman drops her contact lens in a kitty litter box, she fishes it out (we see cat feces), she puts it back in her eye without cleaning it, she complains that her eye hurts and we see her wearing an eye patch later. A dog defecates on a sidewalk, a man picks the feces up using a five dollar bill (we see feces on the sidewalk and smeared on the bill); then a man picks up a five dollar bill not realizing that it has dog feces on it and it smears on his hand. A young woman eats food scraps off a man's plate. A young woman wearing a gas mask enters a men's bathroom to clean it.
 A young woman's apartment is flooded and we understand that almost everything is lost. A young woman is insulting about a woman's art pieces, not realizing that she made them.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Luck, idealism, superstition, positive attitude, voodoo, magic, perfection, jealousy.

MESSAGE - Luck changes, and there's nothing magical about it. If you focus on the bad things you won't have time to enjoy the good things. Look at setbacks as opportunities.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
