THE LUCKY ONE IS DEFINITELY NOT THE TITLE FOR NICHOLAS SPARKS OR ZAC EFRON. UNTIL THIS POINT, IT WAS TO BE EXPECTED THAT SCOTT HICKS AS DIRECTOR MIGHT NEVER CATCH THE RAZZIES' ATTENTION. THEN THIS CAME OUT THE SAME WEEKEND AS DARLING COMPANION (AND IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THE THREE STOOGES AND LOCKOUT). IN FACT, THIS IS THE WORST-REVIEWED WIDE RELEASE FOR ALL of APRIL 2012!

IN THIS FILM, ZAC EFRON IS A SOLDIER RETURNING HOME TO COLORADO FROM HIS 3RD TOUR OF DUTY IN IRAQ. THE ONLY THING THAT KEPT HIM ALIVE IS A LUCKY CHARM IN THE FORM OF A PHOTO OF A COMPLETE STRANGER. SHE TURNS OUT TO BE A WORKER IN A FAMILY-OWNED KENNEL BUSINESS IN A SMALL LOUISIANA TOWN, AND HE TRAVELS THERE. FIRST, SHE DISTRUSTS HIM, THEN THEY FALL IN LOVE, THEN HER JEALOUS EX-HUSBAND ENDEAVORS TO BREAK THEM UP!

BETWEEN NICHOLAS SPARKS' THE LAST SONG, AND ZAC EFRON'S CHARLIE ST. CLOUD, I THINK THIS HAS an ADEQUATE RAZZIE PEDIGREE, AND A LOT OF US WOULD LOVE TO SEE THE RAZZIES PULL OUT ALL THE STOPS AND GO AFTER ALL NICHOLAS SPARKS FILMS!

BUT DON'T LET ME SPEAK FOR YOU. HERE'S YOUR CHANCE TO JINX THE LUCKY ONE!




A SMALL-TOWN LOUISIANA FAMILY-OWNED 
KENNEL? REALLY? THAT'S NOT WHAT I'D 
CALL LUCKY...THAT'S JUST PLAIN CURSED!

R.T. (20%): "While it provides the requisite amount of escapist melodrama, the film ultimately relies on too many schmaltzy clichés to appeal to anyone not already familiar with the Nicholas Sparks formula".

Roger Ebert gave it 2.5/4.

Too many sappy Nicholas Sparks movies get made. And Efron did this right after that horrible New Year's Eve.

I just saw it. It currently ranks #41 in my all time worst list (there are 53 titles so far).

For your consideration: Worst Actor (Zac Efron (not for THE LORAX)), Actress (Taylor Schilling), Screen Couple, Remake or Sequel, and, Picture. Maybe Worst Director as well.

Will Fetters should be considered for Worst Screenplay. The screenplay is dull. There's nothing to engage the audience. To stay fully awake while watching this movie you need to drink some coffee.


Directed by Michael Bay and M. Night Shyamalan comes...a movie guaranteed to win Razzies!

Oh yeah, Zac Efron and Taylor Schilling should also be considered for Worst Screen Couple. The main reason is that Efron's youthfulness makes Schilling look like a predatory baby-sitter or teacher.

Aside from some changes that only fans call "huge" but actually don't matter, the script is the same as the book.

And they're almost the same age!
LOL
Seriously, though. I think the award should be more about the lack of chemistry (which is the case here).
