Nate got passes for The Lucky One, and of course he wasn't going to go with me, so he got a couple for me and my best friend.
I was SUPER excited. I love everything I've ever read by Nicholas Sparks, and just knew this movie would be amazing from the second I saw the previews.
I was disappointed in myself for not reading the book beforehand though. I always read the book first before seeing the movie, and if I don't.. I won't end up reading the book. :-/
Anyway, the movie was starting at 7:30, and we were leaving as soon as we got off work in order to be there in time to get a good spot in line so that way we could have a good seat in the theatre.
We got there around 6:15, and were way far back in line. I was a little worried that we wouldn't get a seat, but the guy at the ticket check in assured us that the theatre we would be in holds 300 people, and he didn't think that many people were in line already.
Yeah.. that's a lot of people ahead of us.
After we got some popcorn, and waited in line for what felt like forever, it was finally our time to go in the theatre and get a seat in the 2nd row. Hello headache 10 minutes into the movie!
If you're not familiar with The Lucky One, IMDB describes it like this:
A Marine travels to North Carolina after serving three tours in Iraq and searches for the unknown woman he believes was his good luck charm during the war.
Not the most descriptive summary, but it tells you what you need to know.
This movie.. was captivating! Such an amazing love story that pulls at your heart strings. The characters in the book are relatable and lovable. I laughed, cried and felt anger throughout the whole movie.
My best friend did read the book.. and I won't give anything away.. but she said the ending was MUCH different. She told me what happened in the book, and yeah. Totally different ending. Not even close to the movie.
Buuuut, she still enjoyed it and actually said she really liked the way the movie ended as opposed to the book.
If you've read this book, I know you're looking forward to this movie. Even if you haven't read the book, go see the movie. You'll love it. Promise.
Besides, who doesn't appreciate a good love story? :)
