PG Certificate


Our Score
Hollywood's favourite tomboy gets a swanky makeover in director Donald Petrie's romantic comedy. Unfortunately a lazy script takes the shine off Lindsay Lohan's role as a girl spoiled by her good fortune. After a wearisome preamble that sees her find cash on the streets, score a hot date and mistakenly get Sarah Jessica Parker's dry cleaning, Lohan kisses the hapless Chris Pine, an aspiring music promoter. Suddenly her luck runs out, but it's obvious that fate has contrived to bring them together. So it's hard to feel sorry for our heroine when she slips in mud and receives a mild electric shock from changing a light bulb. Lohan is a gifted comedian, yet Petrie runs out of ideas for making the character likeable. A smattering of pratfalls and musical interludes by pop band McFly only amplify the flaws.


A woman blessed with good fortune finds everything changes for the worse when she kisses a perpetually unlucky music promoter at a party. However, although her life turns into a sequence of disasters, his situation is transformed by happy events. Romantic comedy, starring Lindsay Lohan, Chris Pine, Missi Pyle and Faizon Love, and featuring an appearance by pop group McFly.
