Drama, Romance
Film adaptations of Nicholas Sparks novels almost always have several things in common—like attractive lead actors, the Carolinas, and death. Oh, and every movie poster features a passionate embrace. The Lucky One sticks with that formula, but doesn’t offer enough substance to overcome it. The attractive leads are Zac Efron and Taylor Schilling, who was last seen as powerful magnate Dagny Taggart in that bad Atlas Shrugged adaptation last year. Logan (Efron) walks from Colorado to Louisiana—it’s North Carolina in the book, keeping with Sparks’ tradition—to find a woman in a picture that he unearthed while serving in Iraq, believing her to be some kind of guardian angel. Maybe she isn’t, but Beth (Schilling) is easy on the eyes, so Logan hangs around and love blooms … because the movie poster wouldn’t have it any other way.
