** Jake suffers from this a bit too, like the fact that he stepped in a puddle of water after it had just rained, or that he grabbed a $5 bill from the trash that the record executive he was following used to clean up some of his dog's crap off the walkway in a park.

* TooDumbToLive: The movie confuses some things with bad luck that are really Ashley just being stupid. Some examples include: Ashley turning on water from a bath tup faucet on a plugged-in hair dryer, which then explodes and her trying to replace a lightbulb at the bowling alley, but not turning off the lightswitch before doing so and getting electrocuted when she put the bulb in the socket.

* JukeboxMusical: Seems like it's supposed to be one, since all of the songs performed in it are [=McFly's=] own material from their last 2 albums prior to it. Ironically, their song 'Just My Luck' never appears in the film, despite it fitting with the film and being on the soundtrack.

* AsHimself: [=McFly=] as a version of themselves where they didn't get famous in the uK already.

One night, a woman named Ashley (played by Lohan) with all the luck in the world meets, kisses, and somehow switches her luck with the most unluckiest man in the world named Jake (played by Pine) at a masquerade ball. He's been trying to get [=McFly=] (playing fictionalized versions of themselves) a record deal in New York City, but his extremely bad luck has always prevented him from doing so. Meanwhile, Ashley's luck has helped her a lot with her life, as she basically breezes through life, finding money on the ground, being able to talk a record executive into a deal with the company she works for with no prior experience in negotiating (just sitting in on meetings), and just being all around lucky. After their lucks are switched, Jake finally gets to meet with the record executive and is able to get [=McFly=] an audition, then subsequently gets a new apartment, the band get one as well, and everything he's ever wanted.

Ashley, meanwhile, gets her apartment flooded (and filled with mold), loses her job, bases a mirror, almost gets struck by lightning, and fills a washing machine with too much detergent, causing it to over bubble while washing her clothes.

Ashley, meanwhile, gets her apartment flooded (and filled with mold), loses her job, bases a mirror, almost gets struck by lightning, and fills a washing machine with too much detergent, causing it to over bubble while washing her clothes. She goes searching for Jake, but eventually gives up when she's hunted down, and kissed, all of the male dancers at the party, whom Jake disguised himself as to get into the Ball. She eventually figures out it was him and kisses him to get her luck back. Unfortunately, things start to go bad for him again while things return to normal for her, which she starts to feel guilty about. So, at [=McFly's=] concert, she kisses him again to give him her luck back, since she feels he has more to offer with it than she does, and then tries to board a bus out of the city, which Jake's luck prevents her from doing. Jake then gets to her, kisses her multiple times, then they kiss his cousin Katie on the cheeks, not knowing whose luck they had, and apparently giving Katie the good luck while they have normal luck. The film then ends as they get together.



* ContrivedCoincidence: The film just ''runs'' on them. From the record exec that Jake tries to get to listen to [=McFly's=] demo tape being one who Ashley talked into coming to a masquerade ball that she has to plan, since she came up with the idea, to her boss being stuck in an elevator to give her that opportunity, to a friend she invited to the ball being a male escort, to Ashley's house getting flooded, to Ashley getting zapped by electricity, to Harry form the band getting stuck underneath the stage then subsequently appearing on it by rising on a lift. ''Some'' of it can be chalked up to bad luck, but the rest is just Ashley being dumb, or it not even relating to her at all.



* FreakyFridayFlip: Of a sort, with the two main characters switching their lucks. It's probably also why they casted Lohan in the movie, since she'd previously starred in Disney's remake of the trope namer.
* PopPunk: [=McFly's=] songs in the movie.

namer. They, subsequently, also essentially switch lifestyles, as Ashley starts to work Jake's old job at a bowling alley and he starts living in a penthouse suite after landing the record deal.
* PopPunk: [=McFly's=] songs in the movie. They even rerecorded their earlier hit, '5 Colours in Her Hair' for the movie in this style, which became how they would play it in concerts over the original SurfRock version. Arguably, this version fits better in that genre than its original.
