Steve D Day is surprisingly good but the rest isn't. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 06/25/23 Full Review ashley h Lucky Me is a boring film. It is about three struggling theatrical performers who meet a famous songwriter who is trying to convince a wealthy oilman to finance a musical he is scripting. Doris Day and Robert Cummings give terrible performances. The screenplay is badly written. Jack Donohue did a horrible job directing this movie. I was not impressed with this motion picture. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Just a barrel of cuteness. Not memorable but fun for the 1 hour and 40 minutes. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member mixed bag WB musical Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member And my ill-advised Doris Day phase continues. Even for the genre and era, this is cornpone as all hell. Still, Nancy Walker (Rhoda's mom!) is always a welcome presence, if almost always underused. And how can you not respect a movie that ends with a wacky scheme involving wigs and fake accents, a prominently featured giant cake that no one jumps out of or falls into, and almost no payoff to the weird logic of the multiple deceptions? Still, the opening number is just about the only thing here really worth seeking out. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Bland musical, peppy performers but flat nonetheless.
