I don't care much about any of the film adaptions by Nicholas Sparks and "Ther Lucky One" is no exception. Don't get me wrong, I like the plot when a marine in Iraq picked up a picture of a beautiful and escapes being blown to bits, then after he comes home, I tracked down that girl and that where the film goes toitally wrong. The girl in question works at a Kennel when you can hear the barking, even in the house. The film is nothingmore than a soap opera being done by top-notech performers who would rather do something else. I like Taylor Schilling and Blythe Danner in a appealing perforances. But the film ends for me. I know a lot of women will probaby love the movie more than me. I'm just a guy. How should I know about these things? Just lucky I guess.
I like everything about this love story. What's not to like about two attractive people, each with their own struggles, finding each other. The acting, the pacing, and the joy that you have at the end gets a solid "A." It's not realistic, eh. Hmm, we all have an equal chance of sheer wonderful happenstance as well as tragedy. Both happen. Why do people have to be so cynical about something like this film that's warm and happy. I like both characters and felt really good leaving the theater.
