Good Luck Chuck Woof! 2007 (R)

Charlie Logan (Cook) is a successful dentist whose office is conveniently adjacent to that of his long-time buddy, boobobsessed plastic surgeon Stu (Fogler). Charlie's requisite fatal flaw is that he carries a curse placed on him during his preteen years by a rebuffed goth girl. As a result every woman he dates dumps him and immediately meets the man of her dreams. So legendary is the curse that heaps of women pursue him to ensure Mr. Right's arrival. When he meets klutzy but sweet beauty Cam (Alba), he faces a double dilemma: what to do with the Mr. Right-seeking bimbos, and how to hang on to Cam in light of the curse. Charlie and Cam are cute, but the gags are crude and the sex scenes are gross. 96m/C DVD, Blu-ray Disc .
