Reviews Take A Dive For Zac Efron's 'The Lucky One'
"If you've ever liked a Nicholas Sparks movie, you're likely to enjoy this one," says Roger Ebert in a wearied report that questions whether or not this particular work of fiction should ever have been made into a film. Todd MCCarthy of Hollywood Reporter throws his own hat into the ring, saying that The Lucky One, which also stars relative newcomer Taylor Schilling, has "no dramatic or visual scheme here, just random camera angles tossed and mixed."
In terms of the acting, Time Magazine's Mary F Pois reckons that Efron "acquits himself reasonably well," though Chuck Wilson, writing for Village Voice slams Zac and Taylor for the lack of on screen chemistry, saying "No amount of neck nuzzling or back arching can make us believe there's real heat rising between these two."
