Critical reception

In 1933, the Melbourne Argus wrote, "one has become accustomed to seeing Ralph Lvnn as Ralph Lynn in every part which he plays. His appearances in the opening sequences of Just My Luck (at the Majestic) as a music teacher who expects everyone to kick him down the back stairs raises hopes that at last one is to see him subordinate himself to a character. The hopes are refreshing but fragile, like a glass of iced lager in the tropics - not that it matters much. Ralph Lynn as Ralph Lynn is as diverting a spectacle as the British screen can offer. The attitude to life of Mr. Blake, the music master, Is expounded in a single phrase. "I wonder why that didn't hit me," he ponders when a loose slate slides from a rooftop and shatters at his feet. Poor Mr. Blake has had 35 years of bad luck...Mr. Lynn contrives to leaven his foolery with touches of genuine pathos, but when his luck changes to prove the comforting theory that a man has as much good as bad fortune in his life, he fairly romps in his Rookery Nook style, through broader and yet broader farce. It is all very good fun, though. Mr. Lynn is supported by an able cast, which includes Winifred Shotter and Robertson Hare."[3]
