About the Movie

Three soldiers -- Colee (McAdams), T.K. (Pena) and Cheaver (Robbins) -- return from the Iraq War, after suffering injuries, and learn that life has moved on without them. They end up on an unexpected road trip across the U.S., with Colee on a mission to bring her boyfriend's guitar back to his family because he saved her life, T.K. seeking confidence to face his wife after a shrapnel injury threatens his sexual function, and middle-aged Cheaver planning to hit the casinos in a desperate effort to pay for his son's college tuition.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: With a smooth, light touch, The Lucky Ones focuses on the idea that the present and the people who factor into it are all we really have. – Laura Kern, New York Times, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: This is not the worst of the Iraq-themed movies of the past few years, and it's possibly the best acted of any of them. But you wish the bonding of these three people wasn't diluted by the trite scenarios and artificial circumstances of their saga. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: [A] far-fetched take on Iraq War homecomings. – David Germain, Associated Press, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: The Lucky Ones has plenty of heart and courage. If it only had a brain ... – Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

It was a sweet sentimental movie. I prob wouldn't watch it again but the charaters were great and the story was solid.


This was a really great movie - I very much enjoyed it! I wish I had bought it instead of renting. Its a low key but really heartwarming and meaningful story and the characters are all interesting and well acted. Its a fantastic road trip / buddy movie. And I LOVE Rachel McAdams!!!
