The Lucky One Thank You Roundup
For the first time in awhile, I’m on the fence. Usually I’m pretty clear cut whether I like a movie or not. This time, I’m stuck in neutral. It’s nice to see Zac Efron stretch his acting wings and move away from his teen idol beginnings. He does a pretty nice job here. Taylor Shilling and Jay R. Ferguson turn in strong performances and you can never go wrong with Blythe Danner.
On the flip side, how many romances can Nicholas Sparks churn out? Notebook, A Walk to Remember, Dear John, and the list goes on and on. I guess it is all about supply and demand. If readers and moviegoers continue to show up, then wouldn’t you keep producing them if you were him? I can’t really get too upset at him because I would probably do the same. Actually it is amazing to see how many different scenarios and ways he can tell the timeless tale of love. But I find myself questioning how things unfold. “Just tell her! What are you doing? There’s no way this could happen.” With all this internal chatter, perhaps it was a good movie. Like I said earlier, very on the fence. The bottom line, it was a decent movie, but my testosterone begs to differ.
