Based on an early review for The Lucky One, Amanda Ostuni gives her opinion – Yet despite the redundancies with Sparks’ previous film adaptations, “The Lucky One” has its own flavor, and a delightful one at that. While it has its tear-jerking moments, it also provides the audience with opportunities to laugh, more so than other Sparks stories like “A Walk to Remember” and “The Notebook.” Many of the scenes create an atmosphere of gravity mixed with humor that could bring tears to one viewer’s eyes and a smile to another’s face. As the couple’s romance becomes more intimate and Logan bonds with Beth’s son, Ben, the characters’ interactions show these emotionally complex moments.
