The Lucky One {Giveaway CLOSED}

GIVEAWAY CLOSED
Winners are: Melanie & Aimee
 
I have to admit, I never saw the appeal of Zac Efron. It could be because I’m almost old enough to be his mother. I did say almost.

Or maybe it was his hair. I hate that messy hair style which boys wear. It requires a lot of effort to maintain that look – the “just got out of bed” look. As he’s matured, so has his hair style. Just Google Mr Efron and you’ll see what I mean.

Enough about hair…

About a year ago, I went on a bit of a book buying spree. Book Depository had discount codes and I went a little crazy. I ended up purchasing (among other things) a heap of Nicholas Sparks novels. I didn’t know too much about Nicholas Sparks, other than the fact that he wrote “The Notebook”.

Nicholas Sparks writes lovely, romantic, mushy books which I adore. I read “The Lucky One” and absolutely loved it.

The Lucky One (the film) is true to the book (though obviously, like most films, not as detailed). It is a good one to have your girlfriends around for a chick flick night, with a bottle of wine and chocolate ice cream.

Zac Efron and Taylor Schilling star in this powerful romantic journey. After three tours of duty in Iraq, U.S. Marine Sergeant Logan Thibault goes in search of the unknown woman whose photo he believes was his good-luck charm during the war.

The Lucky One is stirring, heart felt and deeply moving… and watching the more mature Zac Efron star in this role, isn’t bad either.

  1. Zac is a definite YAY for me; I LOVE him!! The reason why he is a YAY for me is because he is very beautiful and he can dance!! I love a man who knows how to dance!

  2. I enjoyed watching Zac in the High School Musical movies with my boys. I haven't seen him (I don't think) in any other movie. So I'll say Yay. I haven't heard of this new movie. Sounds interesting.

  5. Zac Efron is Yay for me now. When I first saw him I wasn't a fan, but I think he has become a bit of a 'man' rather than a 'boy' and that's what has changed my mind! The main reason I like him would be his looks, of course lol!

  8. Think it has to be a yay, although it was my daughter who introduced me to him a few years ago - she's only 9 now, lol! She didn't think he was cute, she loves Selena Gomez instead (far too young to be liking boys anyway!)

  10. There is no denying that he has talent.

    Maybe he is a quite achiever when it comes to philanthropy?

    Fence-sitting pending further information.

  21. Definitely a YAY now, in High School Musical he was too young to be a YAY but now he's a bit older and can carry the unshaven look, he's a hottie! Gorgeous eyes and not a bad actor.
