Nicholas Sparks The Lucky One Review

Synopsis: Based on Nicholas Sparks' bestseller The Lucky One, Zac Efron ("17 Again," "Charlie St. Cloud") stars alongside Taylor Schilling (TV's "Mercy") and Blythe Danner ("Meet the Parents" franchise) in this romantic drama directed by Academy Award®-nominated writer/director Scott Hicks ("Shine," "No Reservations").

U.S. Marine Sergeant Logan Thibault (Efron) returns from his third tour of duty in Iraq, with the one thing he credits with keeping him alive—a photograph he found of a woman he doesn't even know. Learning her name is Beth (Schilling) and where she lives, he shows up at her door, and ends up taking a job at her family-run local kennel. Despite her initial mistrust and the complications in her life, a romance develops between them, giving Logan hope that Beth could be much more than his good luck charm.

My Thoughts: As I stated in my giveaway I am a HUGE fan of Nicholas Sparks' films and I couldn't wait to see The Lucky One. I was really expecting a tear jerker, like Nicholas Sparks is known for, so I was a little disappointed that this didn't have the same sappy feel to it that most of his movies have. Don't get me wrong, it was a great love story and I'll definitely watch it again, it just left me wanting a little more. The on-screen connection between Zac Efron and Taylor Schilling was amazing and Zac Efron isn't all that bad to look at either. Overall, I'd say it's a must-see romantic drama!

I am renting this movie only for Zac Efron. I know this is a shallow statement, but this man is so gorgeous. My co-worker at Dish and I have been talking about a movie night, and we both agreed to rent this movie. I’m glad to know it is not as sappy as “The Notebook." I added this movie to my Blockbuster @home DVD list, and will pick this movie up tonight instead of waiting for it the mail. I can never get enough of Efron, so I will hold on to this rental for awhile.
