Default 'Good Luck Chuck' - High-Def Digest review

Just posted Peter's review of 'Good Luck Chuck.' Like most, he *hated* the movie itself (it's one of the all-time turkeys at Rotten Tomatoes, with a 3% fresh rating), but as a Blu-ray release he says it fares much better, with good audio and video and supplements that are appropriate to the tone of the film. Whether or not that makes it worthy of a rental is up to you....

Even though the movie soundtrack may not be worthy, props to Lionsgate for the uncompressed PCM 7.1 audio. A trend I hope they continue. Hopefully some of the other studios are taking notes

Default Alba HATES Dane Cook

Don't know much about Dane Cook sounds like an ass if this story is true. Alba would leave the set right after shooting, Cook stayed and filmed sex scenes telling acteress they might be in the movie. Alba is so hot why would you piss her off?

So Dane Cook is a horse's ass. On the other hand, those women he tricked must be pretty damn stupid too. Oh well. Some of his standup is funny and he was pretty good in Mr. Brooks. Still, I expect he's going to fade out in the not-too-distant future at this rate. As for this movie, not even a rent after reading this review.

If your looking for a shit alba movie just get in the blue, at lest she is half naked the entire movie and had a lot of perverted pause and zoom in shots. I give that movie 4 out of 5 stars because it could have won in oscar if alba and the other girl had ditched paul walker and had a nude underwater sex scene

This is brilliantly phrased

Agree totally with the review of the film...
