Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A cesspool of irrational plot points and flaccid punch lines."
‑ Stephen Garrett, Time Out New York
"Can we finally just admit that Dane Cook isn't funny?"
‑ Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly
"We've never gotten the appeal of Cook, and this did nothing to explain it."
‑ Hank Sartin, Time Out Chicago
"The only plausible scenario in this movie is the idea that a woman would be so annoyed by Dane Cook, she'd be willing to put a curse on him."
‑ Brooke Holgerson, Boston Phoenix
"...comes off as the latest misfire from erstwhile comedian Dane Cook..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"What isn't forgivable, though, is being boring, and Good Luck Chuck has all the engaging magnetism of an unflushed toilet."
‑ Mark Bourne,
"This is an unoriginal, dull-witted, juvenile, crude, offensive, idiotic and pointless romantic comedy that makes no sense. None."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"The cracking performances from Alba and Cook do wonders at papering over these creative fissures."
‑ Ben Rawson-Jones, Digital Spy
"... a bit like being at an entertaining party ruined by a some obnoxious loud-mouths shouting obscenities."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, ESplatter
"Apparently someone out there thought it would be a good idea to capitalize on American's love for penguins AND gross-out comedies."
‑ Jeff Bayer, The Scorecard Review
"The script is so reliant on wish-fulfillment it forgets to add those important little touches: you know, wit, sincerity, characterisation, that kind of thing... A very cheap shot - and hardly anyone calls him 'Chuck'."
‑ Anna Smith, Time Out
"Good Luck Chuck is so undistinguished that it feels like an extended screen test."
‑ Tim Grierson, L.A. Weekly
"If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all, right?"
‑ Jeff Otto,
"Whether or not you appreciate Dane Cook's spastic, hyperactive brand of observational humor, he cannot be held solely responsible for the unmitigated disaster that is 'Good Luck Chuck.'"
‑ Rossiter Drake, San Francisco Examiner
"A transparent excuse for a constant parade of topless females eager to assume a compromising position. The only thing missing was a cheesy porn soundtrack."
‑ Kam Williams, EURWeb
