The Lucky One (2012)
Note another The Notebook
The concept and story I love. But the way the story was told, shot and some of the acting I was not impressed with.
I felt the cinematography was off in that they spent way too much time giving us those "longing" shots of beautiful sunrises or sunsets, all a bit reminiscent of A Walk to Remember. The love scene I didn't feel had as much raw passion as I would expect and the chemistry was very dry. I would add, the interaction between Zac's character and the little kid, was great.
Overall a enjoyable movie but like one of my friends said, "When are they gonna realize The Notebook was the greatest movie ever made, and when will they stop trying to remake it?"

Lessons for life
When I got the invitation to go to this film, I was extremely hesitant and worried as to what I was going to be viewing. Even to go so far as to accept the impending nap I was about to have.
I was sorely mistaken about getting a nap. From the very beginning the story and life lessons presented were gripping. True respect for the dedication, hard work and absolute presence of mind to clear away all the minutiae that many of us get caught up in to focus on the details that are so very important.
I have actually seen action films with more lulls and uninteresting parts then what I watched in this film. It's a great story.
