Critic Reviews of "The Lucky One"Time OutMay 01, 2012
Even taken as simple schmaltz, 'The Lucky One' lacks the romantic impact of the adaptation of Sparks's 'The Notebook' or even the Channing Tatum-starrer 'Dear John'.Chicago ReaderApril 20, 2012
As long as Efron's shirt comes off, he could play an accountant and no one in the target audience would care.Richard Roeper.comApril 20, 2012
Well-acted schmaltz with some gaping plot holes.Newark Star-LedgerApril 20, 2012
There's not much to the movie besides handsome sets, sun-dappled photography and a plot as predictable as the verse in a Hallmark card.New York Daily NewsApril 20, 2012
[Hicks] hits the beats - lonely woman, hunky stranger - without bothering to develop even the slightest depth.NewsdayApril 20, 2012
The overheated eroticism could have at least made for a camp classic, but the film's chilling narcissism ultimately makes for a pleasureless fantasy.The Patriot LedgerJune 02, 2013
How bad is this Zac attack? Well, let's just say I'm convinced director Scott Hicks opted to render his buff-and-scruffy star the strong, silent type just to keep Efron from opening his mouth.FILMINK (Australia)October 24, 2012
Falling victim to his source material, Hicks fails to invest it with any sort of edge, rendering the cinematic version as mawkish and saccharine as Sparks' bloated prose.What CultureOctober 04, 2012
Even within the company of recent Sparks releases like this year's 'The Vow', 'The Lucky One' comes across as a two-dimensional cartoon masquerading as heartfelt human interaction.We Got This CoveredSeptember 15, 2012
A pretty to look at but emotionally void film that does no favours for its otherwise lovely lead actors.Movie MetropolisAugust 24, 2012
The movie follows the Sparks formula so precisely, you could write out every detail of the plot just from watching the trailer.3AWJune 30, 2012
If you're after a high-quality weepie, this superbly crafted romantic melodrama from director Scott Hicks (Shine; The Boys Are Back) and novelist Nicholas Sparks (The Notebook; Dear John) will drain your tear ducts.
