Movie Review: Lucky You


By web gangsta | Published:

Rated PG-13 for adult situations and gambling. 

Rating:  C-

It’s billed as a romantic comedy, but don’t believe the hype.  There’s more (boring) scenes of poker than there are of any so-called romance.  And I *like* watching poker.   

Some slightly funny gambling-related moments (one character completely based on a real person and situation).  The problem is that this is a poker movie with a romance side-story, not a romance movie with a bit of poker.  In this case, you’ve really got to know when to fold ’em.
