'The Lucky One' follows tired template

by Special to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette | April 19, 2012 at 11:01 a.m.

If you’ve seen one movie based on a Nicholas Sparks novel (his books include A Walk to Remember, The Notebook and The Last Song), you’ve already seen The Lucky One.

And chances are excellent you’ve also seen his oft-told story delivered better, so writes our review in tomorrow’s MovieStyle.

As in all Sparks’ tales, a troubled loner will find love and a spiritual awakening, and at least one person will die a painful, horrific death.

It’s as if he’s competing with Stephen King to see who can leave a bigger body count. For our review of The Lucky One and six other movies opening in central Arkansas this weekend, see Friday’s MovieStyle in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.

Thank you for coming to the website of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. We're working to keep you informed with the latest breaking news.
