More Detail:

LUCK is an animated comedy on Apple TV Plus about Sam, an orphan who constantly experiences bad luck and befriends a lucky Scottish cat named Bob, but, when her luck runs out, both she and Bob could be in trouble from the leaders of good and bad luck. LUCK is well animated, with some good messages promoting family, friendship and selfless unconditional love, but these themes are marred by pagan superstition throughout the movie.

The story follows an orphan named Sam, who turns 18 and must leave the orphanage to start a life on her own. Despite not finding her “forever family,” Sam is a bright, energetic young girl who is ready to take on the world.

Sadly, she suffers from a severe case of bad luck. No matter her intentions, things always go wrong. Sam wants Hazel, a younger girl at her former orphanage, to find her forever family and is contemplating how she can help when a black cat appears.

Sam offers the cat some of her sandwich, and they part ways. However, as Sam leaves to go home, she notices a penny on the ground. The next morning, she discovers it’s a lucky penny. She holds onto it for the day and decides she will give it to Hazel so she can have a chance to find her forever family. However, Sam accidently flushes the penny down the toilet.

On her way home from work, she notices the same black cat and chases after him. When the cat starts talking, Sam realizes this is no ordinary cat. Sam is able to follow the cat through a green portal and finds herself in another universe.

The cat, who we learn is named Bob, explains to Sam that humans are not allowed here because this is where they supply the human world with good and bad luck. However, they realize that, if they can’t find the lucky penny, they both could be in serious trouble.

Bob reluctantly agrees to help Sam recover the penny. However, Sam’s unluckiness is not easily disguised in this new world. Will Bob and Sam be able to work together? Or ,will their “luck” run out?

LUCK is well animated, with some good messages about selfless, unconditional love. Sam only wants the penny to give to another orphan named Hazel, so that she can find her “forever family.” However, these positive themes are marred by pagan superstition throughout, including pagan imagery like a Japanese waving cat. The story’s moral is that friendship and family matter most, regardless of good or bad luck. MOVIEGUIDE® advises extreme caution for children for the flawed worldview in LUCK.
