Good Luck Chuck (Comedy 2007)

Since when did Dane Cook become an actor? I saw a few of his stand-ups on Youtube and he’s a pretty humorous comedian, but acting? No.

This movie was one of the most unbalanced films that I’ve seen in a while. The beginning was laugh out loud funny, but then it turned into a pseudo-sappy film and became stupid. Yeah they had the slow music and everything. When you’re trying to make a funny movie, make it funny. Knocked Up did just that. You had a humorous premise mixed in with some serious subject matter. Did it try to get all sappy? No. It maintained its humor throughout the whole film and that’s how it became a memorable comedy.

Dane Cook was overacting on all of his lines and Jessica Alba was inconsequential. Dan Fogler was a funny character, but he was also too much over the top. This was a film that started out O.K., but was destined to flop in the end.
