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 then discovers that it was her brother who had the picture only he doesn't remember him. He sees that her brother's death has a profound effect on her. Eventually they get close which makes her grandmother happy but not her ex who is a deputy sheriff who's always threatening to take their son away from her.

I watched this movie on Memorial Day, and was reminded all over again that freedom isn't free. So if you are a past or present member of any branch of the US Armed Forces, or if your loved one has paid the ultimate sacrifice with their life, fighting for our freedom, please accept my heartfelt thanks.I LOVED this movie. Everyone did an excellent job with their character – especially with Logan. So much feeling and emotion in his expression and actions, even when no words were needed. I felt like I could see into his very soul. I saw a young man who still can hardly grasp the fact that <more>
he has survived 3 tours of war in the middle east, when many of his comrades didn't come home. You can sense the depth of emotion and turmoil, and can easily understand why it was often hard to just find words to express himself. You can see the military training and discipline, the steel resolve to control his reactions, even when harassed by the town bully/ex-husband. There's also loyalty, concern for others, tenderness, selflessness, willingness to work hard – he's the man of every woman's dream! It's easy to see that Beth is a survivor of an extremely abusive marriage. Even though she's now divorced, she's still not free from the abusive and controlling ex-husband. She's very careful in how she responds or endures his abusive threats, in order to keep him from going into a greater rage and I cheered for her when she finally found the courage to speak up and take control of her own destiny. Keith, the ex-husband, is easy to despise, for his hateful, snarly, manipulating character and yet in the end we saw a little glimpse of good in his soul as well a little glimpse of what he might have been if he'd only been willing to humble himself and get help much earlier. I loved the happy ending, I loved the story, and I very much appreciated that the producers kept it clean. I can't wait for the DVD – this is a keeper!!
I would rather take a dump on my face... (by bad_331)
Well, truth be told, i didn't want to see this movie, but my lesbian friends said I could participate in an orgy if I went with them... and well... you know what happens next.So, now to the movie.... it was terrible. The characters, Alley and Noah, we terrible, and the performance by Gerard Butler was terrible. Although, with that being said, I must commend Morgan Freeman on his flawless performance of Alley. I thought it was quite odd that the director would chose to have an old male actor as a younger female character, and whilst this may put some people off... it worked very nicely and <more>
was, at times, erotic.To the story... the story told the tale of Alley meets Noah, and Noah is in the special forces, and has to go away. Alley finds someone else when he is away, and when Noah comes back, he is mega sad. But then he discovers a car that can transform into a robot, and this gives him hope. From then on, he becomes accepted into a league called the Avengers, where he is chosen as the male representative for his district to participate in the annual event called the Hunger Games. From here, he host the biggest party with a lot of drugs and titties before having to attend a schooling year at Hogwarts. Here, he plows the bitches every night, especially Hermione, who has a baby. This baby is called Voldemort, and forms an aliance with a guy named Thor. Ultimately, Noah must make a choice to kill himself to protect the earth from a meteor.THe story is good, a lot of sexcii time, but as for the movie, I would rather take a dump on myself than watch it. Therefore, I rate it 10/10!
This movie got my attention from the start. Actually I thought all the actors did a great job.. Great movie! Zac is an awesome actor and this movie shows that. I loved how it didn't look fake and mashed together but very well made. I also loved the little kid! He was so cute and his little violin! It was great watching how the characters changed through the story and you could see the change happen instead of wondering what just happened to that person?! It was a very cute movie and i would recommend it to anyone per-teen and up. Love to be introduced to new cool places through films. <more>
Spoilers ...Great movie (by terrihatton15-325-372577)
If you read the book you will notice some huge differences, but I was expecting that going in as Hollywood does it to every book adaptation known to man. This movie won't win any Oscars, but it's a sweet romantic movie that will brighten your day and make you feel there are still some good guys left in this world. I thought the performances were great. As the Logan character in the book didn't have much dialogue neither did he in the movie and I thought Zac Efron did amazingly well conveying his emotions through facial and body movements. I will say I think Taylor Schilling lacked <more>
performance wise, but she did gain steam toward the end of the film. I gave this movie a 9/10 because I wanted sappy romance and I got it with some extra steamy Zac Efron.
The mark of a film for me is how I feel when I leave the cinema. Has my expectation, interest, and satisfaction been met? With The Lucky One, the answers are yes, yes and yes. What I will say to prospective viewers, or buyers of the DVD when it comes out is ignore the previous overall rating of this film. Pace perfect, characters well defined, and enough layers revealed though action, amazing light angled cinematography, to grab your breath and mind. Great direction and convincing acting. It's a wonderful story too. And it's the attention to detail that I loved as well. The scene <more>
where Logan gets up to leave the pub, but turns around to down his beer, before leaving. Believable stuff. Top movie. Thoroughly recommend
I normally do not like sappy romantic movies. I typically don't really enjoy Nicholas Sparks movies in particular, with one or two exceptions. Guess I'll have to add another exception now. While there was nothing particularly groundbreaking about this movie, and there were a few clichés I spent the first 10 minutes counting every time a character was portrayed back-lit by the sun. I lost count! , I ended up being surprised with the subtlety of the story- telling. Every time I expected, for instance, the small-town cop, abusive ex to: arrest Logan for a trumped up charge, beat him <more>
when everyone was looking and then deny it, beat up his ex-wife when she defied/challenged him, or any number of movie tropes, the story took a more subtle route. He is portrayed as the "bad guy" so to speak, but not in a one-dimensional manner. And every time I expected the love interests to: rip each other's clothes off at the first opportunity, fall head over heels for each other in a melodramatic, saccharine fashion, and over-explain every scene at every given opportunity, they surprisingly didn't. Instead, the love interests are portrayed as gradually falling for each other over a period of time in a regular, reasonable manner. I especially appreciated that dialogue was used sparingly and everything wasn't talked to death like a lot of movies these days. If you're looking for a witty, fast-paced, sex-filled movie with lots of dialogue and plenty of action, this definitely isn't the movie for you. But I thoroughly enjoyed the refreshing change of pace, the sweet, gentle love story, as well as a surprisingly decent performance by Zac Efron. My main gripe is that there were entirely too many back-lit scenes. I wish I could have the sun following me around all the time, back- lighting my profile. Overall, though, I recommend it. Will probably watch again.
Oh yes, this is a chick-flick. One that is a proper showcase to prove Zac Efron has grown up to be a heck of a hunk! Also, you can never, ever find anything to fault with any performance turned in by Blythe Danner. She has been perfect in any role I've ever seen her in, this one is no exception. I have to say that logic does step in and you want, desperately, to say, "Oh for goodness sake, just do what you came to do!" But if that should have happened, it would have ended up a short movie, indeed. There is enough action, romance, gentle humor, wonderful Louisiana scenery, good <more>
people, bad people, decent story-line, fine acting. it's a pretty good movie. Nothing earth-shattering or Oscar-worthy happens here, perhaps, but it's a film I'd recommend and one I enjoyed watching.
Even though my wife categorized it as a chick flick, as a guy I liked it too. Zac Efron plays a bit of a warrior monk who has returned to civilian life after three tours of Iraq. He is trying to come to terms with his experiences of combat and trying to understand how he made it home alive when others didn't and maybe he shouldn't have. He isn't the clichéd shell shocked/PTSD combat vet, but a good, honest man struggling with his experiences. If you have been to combat in anyway, you empathize with him. Zac Efron plays the role well from the tats to the close quarters combat. <more>
Taylor Schilling, Blythe Danner, and the others are good foils to his journey for understanding. My military audience was very engaged during the movie, especially spoiler follows when Beth tells off her stalker ex-husband. They cheered and clapped for her. This movie won't change your life, but it will help you appreciate it. Take a friend and go see it.
Great Date Movie as Zac Efron is All Growing Up! (by ShelbyTMItchell)

Her name is Beth Taylor Schilling and she is a single mom to a boy named Ben. Whom Ben and Logan take an instant liking to one another.She thinks that he wants to have a job helping out on their farm with the animals. At first it is uneasy as she thinks he is some kind of strange young man. But always in case in film, both of them grow on one another.But his grandma who raised her, played by the underrated but charming Blythe Danner takes an instant liking to the ex-Marine. And is the one that actually hires him.He is confronted with the film's antagonist a deputy sheriff named Keith, who was Beth's husband but has since divorce and is very bitter about it. And Ben's father. Who does not hide his disdain for Logan at all.Logan later finds out that it was Beth's brother Drake, who was killed, that "saved" him. And saved his soul even. But still he can't tell her and tries to hide that fact throughout the movie after he sees Beth and Nana crying over his grave.Really a romantic film and a date movie. As it shows Zac maturing into an adult start. Taylor Schilling who is the female lead has a huge potential in movies as she is a great actress. Blythe Danner steals the scenes that she is in, as always.Won't win any awards but still a great date movie.
