We gave it an F

Unlike his last movie, this one fully captures Dane Cook’s stand-up persona — or so he tells us. (Repudiating Employee of the Month isn’t exactly a risky call.) The stand-up comic plays a dentist saddled with an unusual curse: Women marry the man they sleep with after they sleep with him. While the ladies line up to bed Chuck for ”good luck,” he aims to keep a clumsy penguin specialist (Jessica Alba) for himself. ”It’s a hard R,” Cook says of the sex scenes that led him to seek out a trainer. ”My ass should have its own credit.” (Sept 21)
