Story


Romantic drama. 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.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..there's nothing wrong with a three-hankie romantic weeper, but The Lucky One doesn't even manage to elicit a token tear - except perhaps one of boredom..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]
“..onscreen chemistry between actors is a mysterious thing-100 years into cinema, it remains the one story element that Hollywood can't fake..”
by Chuck Wilson [Village Voice]
“..the movie isn't without its small pleasures, but its adamance as a rule-abiding, sales-rack swooner leaves no room for notability..”
by R. Kurt Osenlund [Slant Magazine]
