Lucky You a Rotten Tomato

Lucky_youLucky You, the poker-themed chick flick directed by Curtis Hanson and starring Drew Barrymore, Eric Bana and Robert Duvall, opens tomorrow, after ten or so previously announced release dates going back to 2005.

And the reviews don’t look pretty.

“An impressive-looking but aimless bluffer, tossing down more angles than it’s able to carry through. It doesn’t go downhill as much as it staggers and wanders along a craggy slope.”Newsday

“A decent movie just wasn’t in the cards.”Entertainment Weekly

“After several delayed release dates, Warner Bros. finally lays down its cards with Lucky You, and it’s a weak hand.”Variety

“It’s dull, dull, dull.”Hollywood Reporter

“When you reach the 90-minute mark in Lucky You, it may occur to you that nothing has happened except a couple meaningless games of poker and a semi-romance between two people who aren’t suited for each other.”St. Paul Pioneer Press

Movie review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes so far shows Lucky You having a 38% rating on its Critics Tomatometer, which is code for “it sucks.”

Not that there aren’t any good reviews. We’re just choosing to ignore them.
