  1. FISCHER's rating of the film As Luck Would Have It

    Sur un sujet en or qui fait songer à un des chefs-d'oeuvre de Wilder, notre bien-aimé réalisateur hispanique nous déçoit avec largesse et lourdeur par son traitement bien trop sage et trop tempéré de l'évènement filmé, lui qui n'est jamais plus intéressant que dans la démesure, l'outrance et l'exubérance scénaristiques, des qualités intrinsèques à son style, un peu oubliées dans cette production. www.cinefiches.com

  2. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film As Luck Would Have It

    Alex de la Iglesia, au sommet de son art. Une claque à la société du spectacle. Quel duo d'acteurs ! Et surtout quel film ! https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=825133954209416&set=a.825109624211849.1073741943.100001384583310&type=3&theater

  3. Daniel S.'s rating of the film As Luck Would Have It

    The first hour is really hilarious but I'm not totally convinced by the last part of the film, too melodramatic. Recommended though.

  4. msmichel's rating of the film As Luck Would Have It

    Fantasia '12 Alex de la Iglesia turns his scathing voice towards modern media, television ethics and the selling of our souls for a quick buck with this modern satire with tonque firmly in cheek. An unemployed ad man has a fall at a media launch and steals the show when he winds up with a steel bar imbeded in his head. Jose Mota is aces as the humiliated but opportunistic victim as is his wife played by Salma Hayek.

  5. MR. Universe's rating of the film As Luck Would Have It

    Alex De La iglesia i have always loved your cinema. This was the first time you have gotten me emotionally. I love how the film mixes, drama, satire, drak comedy and well done melodrama. It starts off tongue in cheek and maintains it to a certain degree until it sneaks up and you find yourself deeply immersed in the characters and film. Findng yourself overwhelmed to a certain degree.

  6. Sadhaka's rating of the film As Luck Would Have It

    Everything's ripe for business. Product placement between life and death.
