Review

Our Score
In this largely laugh-free comedy, women discover that if they date and dump dentist Charlie Logan (Dane Cook), the next man that they meet will be their Mr Right. So, of course, Charlie finds himself under siege from the sorts of desperate girls who exist only in the minds of male Hollywood screenwriters. But when Charlie falls for Cam (Jessica Alba), an accident-prone penguin specialist (yes, seriously!), our hapless hero is forced to buck the trend any way he can. Owing much to the Farrelly brothers (with Alba conjuring up memories of Cameron Diaz in There's Something about Mary), this is nothing more than a raunchy Friday-night "lads' film" that's best watched, if at all, after several strong drinks.

Summary

A single man is cursed, so that anyone he sleeps with will find true love with someone else soon afterwards. The situation has its perks in the form of a stream of women seeking him out for one-night stands, but when he meets the girl of his dreams, he resolves to break the spell. Comedy, with Dane Cook, Jessica Alba and Dan Fogler.
