Just My Luck
Lindsay Lohan plays a glamorous young career woman who falls flat on her behind in this comedy, which may be enough to briefly amuse her detractors. After kissing a handsome young man, Jake, at a masked ball, Ashley (Lohan) realises that they have swapped luck. As you do. So while Ashley is stepping in puddles and losing her job, formerly clumsy janitor Jake suddenly hits the big time with the band he manages. The fact that said band is real-life British boyband McFly gives this a rather surreal, ‘Spice World’ edge that detracts from the fantasy: this is clearly an attempt to bring the band Stateside success (let’s hope they’re not looking for more acting work). That said, Lohan handles the occasionally amusing physical comedy capably enough, and Chris Pine ticks all the heartthrob boxes as Jake. But a muddled, nonsensical plot makes this a rather plodding affair that feels like a bit of a step back for the ambitious Lohan.

This movie is an expensive advert for McFly made all the more exciting that you know that one of them did the deed with Ms Lohan during the filming of this movie. This is one of those movies that is perfect for hung over Sunday afternoons, you know exactly what is going to happen within 5 minutes of the film starting but you don't care as there is a lovely comfort in it. The acting isn't of any sort of calibre but it would be out of place in this movie if it was. Grab the duvet and a cup of tea and sit back and relax.
