I'm not going to say anything at all about the odds of that happening. The odds are overwhelmingly against anything in any movie happening, so I should just shut up and pay attention. This is yet another love story adapted from a Nicholas Sparks novel, and it has been cast with appealing romantic leads, a snaky villain with a drinking problem, a grandmother with infallible instincts and a lot of adorable dogs. It also has leaves bursting into bright autumn colors, and a lake just right for a couple to steal away for a quiet chat on a rowboat.
Nicholas Sparks has a good line in stories like this. They usually involve the triumph of love over adversity, are usually set in beautiful natural settings, usually involve such coincidences as finding a message in a bottle, and usually make me stir restlessly, because such escapism is shameless. Still, credit must be given to a film that delivers the goods, and if you've ever liked a Nicholas Sparks movie, you're likely to enjoy this one. I've seen him in interviews where he's better-looking than some of his leading men and comes across as sincere. I think he really does believe in his stories, and I think readers sense that.
"The Lucky One" is at its heart a romance novel, elevated however by Nicholas Sparks' persuasive storytelling. Readers don't read his books because they're true, but because they ought to be true. You can easily imagine how many ways this story would probably go wrong in real life, but who wants to see a movie where a Marine leans over to pick up a photo and is blown up? And a mom trying to raise her son and feed lots of hungry dogs while her abusive ex-husband gets drunk and hangs around? That kind of stuff is too close to life.

Keith was the ex-husband of Beth and was very controlling towards her. He threatened to take away her son permanently and one time nearly shot and killed Logan while a little bit drunk. He was a mean guy and often treated his son Ben like a servant. He seemed to redeem himself at the end of the movie being nicer and giving up being a cop.

Good Luck Bear is one of the ten original Care Bears who first appeared on American Greetings greeting cards in late 1982. Since then, he has made numerous appearances in various forms of Care Bear media, including movies, TV shows, and books.
He speaks with an Irish accent in both the first two specials, the original DIC series, the 1985 The Care Bears Movie and 2012's Welcome to Care-a-Lot series, most likely to match his personality, but has an American accent in all other appearances.
In DIC's Care Bears television series, Good Luck's only speaking and starring role is in the episode "Lucky Charm", where he and the other bears have to help a girl named Millie, who believes she is jinxed. After giving her a "lucky charm" inside box, he tells her it will improve her luck, but only if she doesn't open it. After her luck begins to improve over time, she is able to do things she couldn't do before, and it is only then that Good Luck tells her she can look inside, and finds only a picture of herself, meaning she had created her own luck the whole time.
Good Luck is one of the main characters in the third Care Bears movie, and travels to Wonderland along with other Care Bears and Care Cousins along with a girl named Alice to help find a missing princess.

The Bears Are Back in Town - The Ultimate Guidebook: One lucky bear! Good Luck Bear is used to winning every game and having everything handed to him. He's just lucky that way. But now that he's in the Silver Lining, his luck has turned for the worse, and he has to rely on his determination and enthusiasm to get him through each difficult task that he faces. Luckily, Good Luck has his friends by his side to help him along the way. When he's not on a mission to help the Whiffles, Good Luck enjoys completing challenging puzzles, performing his rainbow juggling routine, and joking around with his best pal, Funshine.
Logan Lucky fits the summer popcorn movie mold to a tee. Its script, characters and humor are enough to keep you thoroughly engaged for a few hours, but once the credits roll, there is no desire to watch it again.
The Kingsman series has shown that people are still very much interested in spy action adventures. This is what I was saying before - if Tatum is given the proper script, he can really shine in movies that are action-based. He already has the build of an action star - he just needs the perfect movie, and Kingsman: The Golden Circle, could have been that.
Hail, Caesar! had a crazy amount of stars in it, and Channing Tatum was just one of many. The Coen brothers struck gold again with their comedy and created a movie that is quite hard to forget once viewed, and Tatum playing Burt Gurney is one of the best parts.
After his debut in Wes Craven's A Nightmare on Elm Street, Johnny Depp returned to the slasher franchise in 1991's Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare, a.k.a A Nightmare on Elm Street 6. Considering how Johnny Depp's fame and acting accolades had grown significantly since his debut, one could only dream of his return alongside the nightmare demon Freddy Krueger. Not to mention, his character's ultimate death had killed all prospects of his return to the movie series. But apparently, as a favor to director Rachel Talalay, Johnny Depp decided to briefly appear in what seems to be a sequence no less bizarre than a dream. The scene, like most cameos, adds no heft to the movie's overarching premise, but Johnny Depp's little parody of "this is your brain on drugs" commercials is amusing enough to make it memorable.
Terry Gilliam's The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus is not only reminiscent of the auteur's extravagant cinematic vision but also serves as a poignant send-off to Heath Ledger. While preserving the late actor's unfinished role, the movie portrays Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell, and Jude Law as the many incarnations of his character. Honored to represent Heath Ledger with his cameo in The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, Johnny Depp expressed his gratitude by recalling that Ledger (via Digital Spy) "was the only player out there breathing heavy down the back of every established actor's neck with a thundering and ungovernable talent that came up on you quick, hissing rather mischievously with that cheeky grin, 'hey... get on out of my way boys, I'm coming through...'"
Johnny Depp and Peter DeLuise's cameos in 21 Jump Street offer a heavy dose of nostalgia to the ones well versed with the original series. Harping on the movie's comical take on the relatively serious premise of the show, Johnny Depp lampoons his character by obsessing over peanut butter and revealing himself as a law enforcement officer only to be dead moments later. For the '80s kids, this cameo was a well-thought-out callback to the high-octane gun-slinging teenage cop shenanigans of Johnny Depp's Tom Hanson, while for others it served as another wacky depiction of Johnny Depp's acting forte.
Starring Toni Collette of the Hereditary fame, Lucky Them revolves around the day-to-day snags of a struggling music journalist who gets the opportunity to investigate the disappearance of an influential musician named Matthew Smith. Johnny Depp, being quite the famously enigmatic A-lister himself, perfectly captures the essence of Matthew Smith's mysteriousness in his short but significant cameo. Without completely shattering the prism of his star appeal, Johnny Depp somehow grounds his character in Lucky Them's realistic drama. Recalling her experience from the movie's sets (via Vanity Fair), Toni Collette confessed that she was almost shocked at how she and Johnny Depp "completely connected in a very disarming, very real way."
Before the Pirates of the Caribbean star sailed through the torrid currents of his ugly split with Amber Heard, he collaborated with her in The Rum Diary and London Fields. With Amber Heard at its forefront, London Fields adapts an eponymous novel written by Martin Amis that centers on the romantic endeavors of a clairvoyant femme fatale. Despite being an adaptation of one of Amis' best works, the movie was heavily criticized for its convoluted plot and lousy character beats that provoked fans of the book and baffled those unversed with it. However, even with his momentary cameo, Johnny Depp breathes some life into the movie with his unmatched vitality and charm. 2b1af7f3a8
