Curious that we got a featurette (with a partial trailer buried within) for Scott Hicks’ “The Lucky One”, his adaptation of the Nicholas Sparks novel of the same name, before we even got the trailer. Speaking of which, here’s the proper trailer, which is essentially the same trailer in the featurette, though there may or may not be a couple of extra seconds of Taylor Schilling groping Zac Efron’s ass inside his briefs in this one. Don’t hold me to it, though, ladies. And er, some of you guys out there.
U.S. Marine Sergeant Logan Thibault (Zac Efron) returns from his third tour of duty in Iraq, with the one thing he credits with keeping him alive-a photograph he found of a woman he doesn’t even know. Learning her name is Beth (Taylor Schilling) and where she lives, he shows up at her door, and ends up taking a job at her family-run local kennel. Despite her initial mistrust and the complications in her life, a romance develops between them, giving Logan hope that Beth could be much more than his good luck charm.
Starring Zac Efron, Taylor Schilling, Jay R. Ferguson, Blythe Danner, Scott Hicks, Will Feters, Denise DiDovi, and Kevin McCormick.
