      The Just My Luck DVD ended up in my collection simply because I had seen the leading lady (Lindsay Lohan) in the Herbie Fully Loaded movie and I liked her style so wanted to see what she was like in something totally different.

      Just My Luck is the story of Ashley - played by Lindsay - who is one of those girls who is lucky - everything she touches turns to gold, comes out right or even better. Jake on the other hand (played by Chris Pine)


      - is the typical loser, no matter what he touches it all goes wrong and sometimes spectacularly.

      Ashely and Jake meet at a masked ball, share a kiss and hey presto their luck is swapped! Ashely finds out what it is like to be “doomed” like a normal person and Jake makes the very best of his new found ‘luck’ to head the band he manages (McFly play this past) to fame and fortune rather than certain failure.

      Meantime Ashley is desperate to get back her luck and ...


      • embarks on a mission to find and kiss every masked man at that ball! These scenes are some of the funniest in the movie, as Ashley first identifies the guys without their masks and then enters into some really desperate ploys to get those kisses. Each time she scratches off a scratch card to see if her luck is back.

        Naturally the story leads to the climax where Jake and Ashley meet, share a kiss and things are back to normal - or are they?

        The story

        line is easy going and therefore may possibly be seen as corny, i.e the idea of a kiss swapping luck and then the whole boy meets girl type theme. However the moral of the movie is really that you don’t have to have ‘luck’ and money to be happy. It also gets McFly plenty of publicity!

        Good viewing for people of all ages, great for an evening in and a feel good factor with plenty of laughs into the bargain. Need cheering up? This will chase away your blues!
