The Lucky One

While it provides the requisite amount of escapist melodrama, The Lucky One ultimately relies on too many schmaltzy clichés to appeal to anyone not already familiar with the Nicholas Sparks formula.

Critic Reviews for The Lucky One

After this performance no further evidence is needed of Efron’s ability to do vulnerability and puppy love – we’re ready now to see whether he can show any bite.

A tsunami of syrup and a Niagara of nonsense here in this mind-blowingly ridiculous romdram.

[Efron] sells it almost single-handedly through sheer force of scrumminess.

Romance isn’t dead, but films like this are giving it a bad name.

Even taken as simple schmaltz, ‘The Lucky One’ lacks the romantic impact of the adaptation of Sparks’s ‘The Notebook’ or even the Channing Tatum-starrer ‘Dear John’.

As long as Efron’s shirt comes off, he could play an accountant and no one in the target audience would care.

More gloopy romantic slush from the piffling pen of author Nicholas Sparks.

It’s doubtful that it will elicit a strong response either from its defenders or its detractors.

The film itself looks lush and lovely with its sun-streaked trees and autumnal tones but it doesn’t stop the film from being another addition to the slush pile.

A sappy and incredibly dull [film] designed to tug at the heart strings.

Taylor Schilling is attractive, but she-like most of the cast-battles the stilted, ham-handed dialogue and a plotline as predictable as a knock-knock joke.

The Lucky One remains remarkably endearing throughout.

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. — (C) Warner Bros

The Lucky One ( 2012 ) on Netflix

A Marine travels to North Carolina after serving three tours in Iraq and searches for the unknown woman he believes was his good luck charm during the war.

US Marine Logan Thibault is on his third tour of duty in Iraq. The morning after a deadly battle, he spots among some rubble a photograph of a young Caucasian woman, with only the words “Keep Safe X” scrawled on the back. In retrieving the photo, he misses being killed by a bomb that hit where he was just sitting. Carrying the photo looking for its owner, he, unable to find that person, encounters one near miss after another, leading to his surviving comrades and himself believing the photograph and by association the woman his guardian angel. Back in the States, he, suffering from PTSD exacerbated by guilt over surviving when many of his colleagues died in battle, goes searching for the woman, who he believes may bring some semblance of meaning back into his life. With only a partial landmark in the photo background, he is able to trace her to the small hamlet of Hamden, Louisiana. She is Beth Green, and the photo belonged to her brother, Logan’s fellow Marine Drake Green, whose death in Iraq is still under investigation but which the military believes may have been by friendly fire. In her grief, Beth, a single mom to eight year old Ben, has temporarily left her teaching job while she and Ben live with her “Nana” and helps at the family’s kennel business. Logan is unable to tell Beth the reason for his visit as Nana hires him to work at the kennel. Able to get over her initial mistrust of Logan, Beth eventually falls for him, who becomes an integral part not only of the business but in the Green’s family life, especially as a male role model for Ben. Logan and Beth having a happily ever after is threatened by the truth of why Logan came to Hamden, and by Beth’s ex-husband, Deputy Sheriff Keith Clayton, who still treats Beth like his possession, and who uses his position as law enforcement and the family name – his father being a judge who is running for Hamden mayor – to get what he wants, which includes threats of suing for full custody of Ben.
