Movie Info

Norman Wisdom, Britain's much-funnier answer to Jerry Lewis, stars in Just My Luck. Wisdom plays a humble jewelry-store clerk who begins playing the horses, the better to raise enough money to buy a fancy gift for girlfriend Anne (Jill Dixon). Much to his surprise, Wisdom wins a fortune at the track: collecting the money, however, may not be as simple as he thinks. The funniest scene finds our hapless hero being trundled off to the hospital for a wholly unecessary operation; also good for laughs is a movie-house routine dominated by Carry On regular Joan Sims. Curiously, Just My Luck was bypassed by American distributors in favor of lesser Norman Wisdom vehicles. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

All Critics (4)

Norman Wisdom in a strained and noisy racetrack farce from Britain.

January 28, 2020 | Full Review…

This... is a rather thin "yes-it-is-no-it-isn't" affair, which shows little real appreciation of Wisdom's characteristic qualities.

February 5, 2018 | Full Review…

Pleasant but unimportant film.

May 26, 2009 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

totally predictable and competently made feelgood fantasy flick for females under 30. If you want an escape and rest your brain, try your luck.
