The Lucky One @ The Flicks 1 + 2
Logan (Zac Efron) is a marine serving in Iraq. While there, he finds a photo of a girl with “keep safe” written on the back. He is admiring it when his unit is attacked.
He survives and credits the photo for saving him. He tries to find the owner but can’t, assuming he was killed. When he goes back to the States, he finds it difficult to adjust and is still haunted by what happened. Analyzing the photo, he finds in the background a landmark that tells him she is in Louisiana.
He then goes there and finds her. He learns her name is Beth. He tries to tell her what happened but can’t get the words out. She assumes he’s there to apply for the job they advertised looking for someone to help at her family’s business, a dog kennel. He says yes but at first she gets an uneasy feeling from him but her grandmother decides to give him a chance. It isn’t long that he makes a connection with her son…
Whenever there is a new adaptation of a Nicholas Sparks novel released, there’s always a mass amount of haters and so be it because some of them are extremely cheesy and bad, however we think that the hate towards The Lucky One is unwarranted, we personally think it is a very enjoyable romantic drama!
Oh yes, this is a chick-flick. A perfect date-movie too. There is enough action, romance, gentle humor, wonderful Louisiana scenery, good people, bad people, decent story-line, fine acting.… Go see it.
