'The Lucky One' Review

The Lucky One will be as good or bad as you're expecting it's going to be. At this stage of the game, being annoyed by the Nicholas Sparks romantic-drama machine is just silly: Filmmakers adapt his books because they know the movies will hit a target audience, and who cares what anybody outside of that niche thinks of them? Still, it's a sign of how unaffected I was by The Lucky One that I mostly just wanted to spend more time with the Blythe Danner character; she sure seemed more fun than the central couple. My review is up at Screen International.
