Family Movie Review: The Lucky One (PG-13)

TheLuckyOne ChesapeakeFamilyMovieReviewKernel Rating (out of 5): whole-popcorn-kernalwhole-popcorn-kernalwhole-popcorn-kernal

MPAA Rating: PG-13       Length: 101 minutes

Age Appropriate for: 14+. Cursing, war violence, and lots of sensual stuff, including a few sex scenes. With those you get implied female nudity, main actor Zac Efron only in his underwear, and a steamy shower dalliance. Young teens should probably be accompanied by parents.

Nicholas Sparks spoke to Chesapeake Family about the different kinds of love present in his latest novel-to-film adaptation, ‘The Lucky One,’ and the movie certainly delves into honor and duty. But while Zac Efron smolders, leaving his cutesy ‘High School Musical’ roots behind, the rest of the film fizzles.

Zac Efron needs to dance more. Since starring in Disney’s “High School Musical” franchise, he barely whipped out his moves in “Charlie St. Cloud,” and of course his voice-acting in the animated “The Lorax” didn’t provide him any opportunities to shake his groove thang. And in “The Lucky One,” Efron dances once, maybe twice? It’s a travesty.
