Consensus: Just My Luck is a screwball rom-com that fails to take advantage of Lindsay Lohan's considerable charm. The film (along with Robert Altman's A Prairie Home Companion) marks the end of Lohan's teen queen phase as she begins playing characters that are older, but not necessarily wiser. Lohan's character is supposedly cursed with bad luck, though the movie confuses misfortune with plain stupidity, leading Lohan into a long series of silly and senseless physical gags.

... a variation on Freaky Friday buffed with a bit of 13 Going on 30's yuppie-career-princess gloss.

It's safe, competent and bland.

Good Morning America

Very well directed, nothing unseemly, Just My Luck is a film moms can take their daughters to. They'll both love it. And... it's dry.

AV Club

A lazy spitballing session of karmic humor, hinged on the sort of generic rom-com contrivances that keep movies like these from ending at a reasonable time.

James Berardinelli

From my perspective, it's watchable, but barely, and nothing I would go out of my way to locate, even if going 'out of my way' represents using a remote control to change TV channels.

Anton Bitel

even if it offers Lohan her first role as a grown-up, places her in a corporate New York, and contrives a scene in which she gets to wear a dress owned by Sarah Jessica Parker, the sex in this city never seems to get beyond first base.

... a real piece of junk.

Peter Howell
Toronto Star

Word on the street -- we're not sure which street -- has it that Just My Luck is Lindsay Lohan's final teen comedy. If so, the timing couldn't be better.

The film can barely breathe beneath the non-stop barrage of low-comedy shtick.
