  • Summary: The movie follows the Sparks formula so precisely, you could write out every detail of the plot just from watching the trailer.

The Lucky One (Combo Pack)

High-Def Digest
28 August 2012
  • Conclusion: I find it hard to believe that people really like these kind of manipulative tales of love. It's like ' Twilight ' without the vampires. It's just so silly. 'The Lucky One' lacks any true conviction. It lacks a humanistic side to the story it's telling. Instead it relies on broadly written stereotypes to drag its narrative across the finish line.

The Lucky One

Cinema Blend
20 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Nicholas Sparks knows exactly who his audience is and, as exclusive as that may be, he knows he can find success writing directly to them. His books aren’t filled with brilliant ideas or commentary, just simple fantasy and romance that people can get lost in and then immediately forget. That said, it would be a surprise if even his most loyal fans could find something to love in the adaptation of his novel The Lucky One .

  • Excerpt: Fate moves in mysterious ways, especially when writers need it to move mysteriously to keep their plots churning along. That’s only a problem when the contrivances start showing. No one likes, say, As You Like It or Oliver Twist because they reflect reality. But when extraordinary coincidences drive a story just because no other elements step up to get the job done, it’s hard not to feel jerked around.

  • Summary: The trouble with destiny is that it leaves no room for surprise; ditto this safe midseason romancer.

Empire Online

  • Conclusion: The Notebook may have had us blubbing but since then Nicholas Sparks adaptions have offered thin pickings for cinemagoers. For all Efron's boyish charms, this one could be the most ordinary of the lot.

Flicks
27 September 2012
  • Summary: Nicholas Sparks' good box-office fortunes may have run out with this heavy-handed (marsh) mallow-drama. The magnificent Message in a Bottle and A Walk to Remember seem like distant memories when confronted with this southern-set slice of syrupy and soapy romance. Essentially a Mills and Boon story (complete with shadowy, soft-focus love scenes), the film feels more like a period drama such is the seeming helplessness of the female lead and the black-hatted nature of the...
