Getting Lucky

Getting Lucky

Getting Lucky (also known as Wish Me Luck) is a 1990 American fantasy-comedy film directed and written by Michael Paul Girard.


Bill Higgins (Steven Cooke) is a down-on-his-luck nerd who needs cash to go to medical school, and so he gets a job as the school basketball team’s towel boy. At the gym he sees Krissi (Lezlie Z. McCraw), who he says he has had a crush on since the seventh grade. Bill is humiliated by the team on his first day, and after accidentally tossing rancid milk all over Tony (Rick McDowell) and Krissi (who are about to have sex behind the gym), he quits the job and returns to collecting recycling for spare change.
