  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
In an innocent game of spin-the-bottle, ten-year-old Charlie Logan (Cook) breaks the rules when he refuses to kiss a demented Goth girl. Embarrassed by his refusal, the spurned Goth levels a curse at poor a life without finding his true love. Fast forward 25 years to find an adult Charlie, still living with the curse of never finding the perfect girl. To make matters worse, while at an ex-girlfriend's wedding, Charlie finds out he is rumored to be a good luck charm, of sorts. Good Luck Chuck discovers that every woman he has ever slept with has found true love

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits fairly good color fidelity, with vibrant reds and solid blues, but greens have a pastel look that limits their effectiveness. Fleshtones look fairly natural, although they can have an unnaturally pinkish hue at times. There are moments when resolution is quite good, but generally the image will look very soft. Color fringing can be noticed at times. Compression artifacts are recognizable throughout and edge enhancement, while minor, is detectable. (Danny Richelieu)
