Good Luck Chuck Movie Review Summary

Actors: Dane Cook, Jessica Alba

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Good Luck Chuck

As a teen, Chuck was cursed by a girl who he refused to sleep with. Now, every girl he sleeps with breaks up with him and gets married to another guy. Chuck enjoys a slew of casual encounters with many women, and it seems that the curse really is true since they all marry off to other men. When he meets Cam, a penguin scientist, he grows really fond of her but is scared of the same thing happening to them. Chuck's friend Stu asks Chuck to test the curse, and when the girl doesn't get married, they think that the curse is fake. So Chuck and Cam do it. Unknown to Chuck, the girl they tested the curse on, did in fact, get hitched later on. Chuck is now paranoid because Cam starts to rave about this Howard guy, who's a penguin expert. Chuck sees how meant to be the two seem, and just lets go of Cam. Just when Cam is leaving with Howard to go to Antartica, Chuck rushes to her to confess his love. Apparently his worry is unfounded since Howard is already married. Nevertheless, Cam loves Chuck's grand gesture and they end up together. Meanwhile, in another part of the country, the girl who cursed Chuck pulls out a pin from a Chuck voodoo doll, signaling that the curse is finally broken.

Best part of story, including ending: It's a weird premise that makes you wonder if Chuck is cursed or if he actually lucked out.

Best scene in story: I mostly found the scenes with Chuck's bestfriend Stu funny.

Opinion about the main character: Chuck gets tired of the single life, and wants a more meaningful relationship, thus the dilemma he has with Cam.
