A grown-up role? No such `Luck'

Weak story and one-joke premise leave Lindsay Lohan in another juvenile role

May 12, 2006|By CHRIS KALTENBACH | CHRIS KALTENBACH,SUN MOVIE CRITIC

Lindsay Lohan, despite all the tabloid troubles and rumors about self-abuse, remains a charming, vivacious and hard-to-resist screen presence. But Just My Luck suggests the bloom may be starting to come off the rose.

Billed in some quarters as her first "grown-up" movie, Just My Luck is really nothing of the sort; it's just as juvenile as anything she's done previously. The only difference is that here, she gets to kiss a lot of guys. Here's hoping her oncoming "adult" persona constitutes more than that.

Just My Luck (20th Century Fox ) Starring Lindsay Lohan, Chris Pine. Directed by Donald Petrie. Rated PG-13. Time 100 minutes.
