Consensus: A shortage of laughs and an undercurrent of mean-spiritedness undermine Good Luck Chuck, squandering a decent premise on gross-out humor and shopworn slapstick.

Mark Bourne

What isn't forgivable, though, is being boring, and Good Luck Chuck has all the engaging magnetism of an unflushed toilet.

Ebert & Roeper

This is an unoriginal, dull-witted, juvenile, crude, offensive, idiotic and pointless romantic comedy that makes no sense. None.

We've never gotten the appeal of Cook, and this did nothing to explain it.

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'.

Good Luck Chuck is so undistinguished that it feels like an extended screen test.

The cracking performances from Alba and Cook do wonders at papering over these creative fissures.

If you're expecting something smart from Dane Cook, you're out of luck.

Jeff Otto

If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all, right?

Good Luck Chuck is a bad comedy that has a few minor laughs, but ultimately fails in being an effective comedy. Dane Cook is a horrible comedian, and aside from… More

One of the best romcoms ever made! Dane Cook is amazing! He's so hilarious and Jessica Alba thrives off him. A must see!

[My predicted rating: 2.5] This one was a great surprise to me, I was all set to watch a passable RomCom, but this was definitely a funny, albeit pretty crude… More

I wasn't sure about this movie. I liked the previews but was expecting to be let down by the actual movie. It was funny, the fat sidekick guy really got on… More
