Just My Luck (2006)
|From the director of How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days, comes a "funny, twist-of-fate comedy" (KBWB-TV)!
Lindsay Lohan lights up the screen as Ashley, the luckiest girl in Manhattan. But little does she know, her good fortune is about to change. When Ashley shares a kiss at a party with Jake, a bad luck magnet, they miraculously switch paths. Suddenly Ashley is plagued by one hilarious disaster after another, and Jake is headed for fame instead of failure. As she desperately races to find Jake and reverse her misfortune, Ashley discovers that her terrible twist-of-fate is the luckiest thing that ever happened to her.
Editor's NoteIn JUST MY LUCK, an old-fashioned film about love and destiny, Lindsay Lohan proves yet again why she is such a movie star. Like the starlets of years past, husky-voiced, sparkle-eyed Lohan has a magnetism that makes her deliciously present on the big screen. In this film by the seasoned romantic-comedy director Donald Petrie (HOW TO LOSE A GUY IN 10 DAYS, MYSTIC PIZZA), the star plays Ashley, a sexy New York socialite who is known to be possessed of amazing luck. Wealthy men flock to her, designer clothes fall into her lap free of charge, and she has never struggled for a moment in her life. One night, at a masquerade party, she shares a dancefloor smooch with hunky Jake (Chris Pine), a charming fellow who has lost every coin toss of his life. As they kiss, the two somehow also swap destinies, and unlucky Jake is suddenly blessed with the charmed existence Ashley abruptly finds herself without. As Ashley finds herself falling into puddles, sitting in paint, rapidly falling off the corporate ladder, and being rejected by a long line of men, Jake begins to win money, get girls, and become a successful rock music manager. Ashley's luck, of course, is not bad enough that she stays out of Jake's path and, in the end, they both manage to win that lottery of love. The charming leads are supported by a colorful, quirky cast that includes ENTOURAGE star Samaire Armstrong as Ashey's cynical single pal and Broadway great Tovah Feldshuh as the fortune teller who helps our protagonist understand her reversal of fortune.
