Two movies titled Lucky Seven enter, only one will leave (with that title) as Herman “OmegaPrime” Davis and Robert Rau watch seven children get beat up by adults — and a made-for-TV movie beat up Robert — to determine which should be called Lucky Seven.
After seeing this trailer shown at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, it was discovered another movie has the same name. And since everyone wit the podcast didn’t have a problem with seeing children put in harm’s way, we were game. The 1986 Hong Kong movie is certainly silly, and dumb, and probably not worth anyone’s time, but man do those kids get beat up. Not Milo & Otis bad, but bad enough.
The second movie was made for TV, and stars Kimberly Williams-Paisley as a woman looking for love, specifically seven boyfriends because the seventh will be her one true love. Patrick Dempsey ruins her plans by being all handsome and stuff, and you can probably figure out the rest. This film did a serious number on Robert, who died a small death while watching people talk and do things that would have driven him insane.
This one won’t be a toughie, but is either movie good enough to call itself Lucky Seven? Listen if you dare.
Do you have an idea or even want to join the “There Can Be Only One” gang at their next viewing party? Email Robert Rau with your movie suggestion, the days you’re free to watch, and how much beer you can bring.
