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, Film.com
"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, ReelzChannel.com
"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
