JUST MY LUCK (2006) GO! 5.30PM, PG, COM­EDY

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Done with the high school years, Lind­say Lo­han tack­led her first ro­man­tic com­edy as a Man­hat­tan ca­reer woman whose run of good luck is re­versed af­ter she kisses a seem­ingly jinxed guy (Chris Pine). She’s not too thrilled about it, and is de­ter­mined to get her good for­tune back by any means. Lo­han is with­out the spark and spunk she ex­hib­ited in ear­lier roles, and the tan­ta­lis­ing con­cept isn’t ex­ploited to full ef­fect – the gim­mick mainly used as a way of set­ting up vi­o­lent slap­stick se­quences for Lo­han in­volv­ing hair-dry­ers, light bulbs, bowl­ing balls and the like. ★★
