Mars Movie Reviews – The Lucky One

Movie Info: U.S. Marine Sergeant Logan Thibault (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 (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. — (C) Warner Bros

Mars Review: If you like movie’s that portray, cheesy, perfect romance between perfect and beautiful people, this is for you.  A romantic drama with little conflict aside from an easily swept-aside threat for sole custody and little energy expended by the participants.  Efron the actor is Tom Cruise-like. Beyond the blue eyes and man-scaped stubble, you are left with an actor who simply pauses on screen when he is not speaking.
