Zac Efron stars with Taylor Schilling and Blythe Danner in the romantic drama "The Lucky One," directed by Academy Award®-nominated writer/director Scott Hicks ("Shine"), based on Nicholas Sparks' bestseller The Lucky One. 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. Discovering 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.

Rented the movie about two days ago for $.99 and it was probably the best Well spent $.99 I decided to have breakfast at McDonald’s and finish the movie here. I wish someone would’ve told me that the ending was going to be so heartbreaking I would’ve gone to my car and started crying they’re not in the middle of McDonald’s and having people look at me crazy but great movie!
This is a very predictable storyline but I still laughed it! It was romantic and heartwarming.
This movie is great!!
ZAC GIVES A GREAT PERFORMANCE! A mature and one that fans have been waiting for from him! Very great romance story!
The movie was good
Great plot. Refreshing love story. Good acting. Great ending. Very entertaining
The main girl in the movie did not know how to act and I don't think she was suitable for her role every thing she did was so fake... the story itself was so boring and nonsense
This movie is great, and fun. I love this movie a lot. I love all of the characters in this movie. I love Zac Efron in this movie. I love Zac Efron as a actor. Zac Efron is one of my all time favorite actors ever. Zac Efron is really cute. It is one of my favorite movies ever.
I watched this movie solely because i wanted to see Zac in it. I cried so much in this movie every time i watch it. So if your looking for a good cry i would say check it out. Also to all you HSM fans he just gets hotter, so that's a plus!
This is my favorite movie ever. I saw it first at my friends house and ever since I have loved "the lucky one"
This movie was grate i just loved it !!!:)
Left way to much out of the book ! Made the movie every choppy !
Worthed the rent! :)
My hubby had this in mind for us to watch tonight although seeing the trailer, i wasn't interested. The film was too slow, there were too many love scenes and Zac Efron's acting was terrible. Even in different situations, he had the same facial expression. My hubby said the guy who played Keith did his part well. I wasn't a fan of this movie but hubby said it was alright
You need to watch this film a few times to appreciate it. Is it action packed with explosive scenes, stunning effects ..... No! If you want that get the next Transformers movie. This is a beautifully cast, awesomely directed film that truly weaves scenes in only the way a master director can, rather than the block, no link, scene making of many modern movies. A beautiful, beautiful movie that offers more nuances every time you watch.
Just ok. Not great not horrible
I was disappointed in this movie. While I liked Zac Efron as the wandering soldier I felt like I couldn't connect to the two lead characters. The story also felt like it was missing parts and did not seem to have a good flow. This one is forgettable.
It's not bad but it's not great either! It's a bit on the boring side.
This was the worst movie I have seen. The show moved so quickly in the beginning I thought it would be over in fourth five minutes but it painfully dragged on. It was a Hugh disappoint the characters were not true to the book nor was the story itself. This was the first time i actually fast forwarded a new movie,Thankfully I only rented it
Surprisingly watchable… I played it twice, and the second I enjoyed more than the first viewing. She is so stunningly attractive and he is so handsome, it's a gradual beautiful romance, pretty good movie
I haven't actually purchased it or rented it from Apple but I watched it at a cinema and I absolutley loved it! It is probably the best film I have ever watched! It is a bit confusing at the start but I hadn't heard of itso I didnt knowthe storyline, and itall made sense near the end. I would highly reccomend this film to anybody and have atleast one box of tissues by your side:)
Absolutely amazing, such a good film <3
Amazing film! A must see, love Zac Efron in this
ok, so i never review on here, but i just felt i had to. I love a good chick flick romance, and I like zac effron, however this film had one of the most contrived plots. Also zac just didnt convince in his role as a marine at all. This film is no Notebook. It doesnt have the same heart or spirit. Zac is pretty in this film though. ;) however the film is mediocre at best.
haven't seen a film as good as this in a long time!
Dreadful acting- predictable storyline. Fell asleep and was disappointed it was still running when I woke up.
Great film, strongly recommend
I rented this film out because of the high star rating - but I think it must be based on 'Zac Efron' fans.
As romantic films go, this one is passable, but it could've been and should've been so much more! Nicholas Sparks wrote a story that has not been done justice in my opinion -too many key elements that made the book so special are just glossed over with a pretty smile and a slow mo camera. For me the biggest let-down was the almost total failure to capture the relationship of Zeus (the dog) with Logan and (later) Beth's son. The most heart felt moments of this story lacked any real conviction for me. Zac Efron fans i'm sure won't mind too much about a stupid dog, but I did :)
The best film yet <3
