what the others say
"In a precision-engineered tear duct botherer such as this Efron's still very much coasting on his heartthrob image."
"The Lucky One doesn't have a genuine emotion in it or a plausible reason to endure it. It's strictly for the sisters of the cult of [Nicholas] Sparks and the men who love them."
"The Notebook may have had us blubbing but since then Nicholas Sparks adaptions have offered thin pickings for cinemagoers. For all Efron's boyish charms, this one could be the most ordinary of the lot."
