The Lucky Ones Trailer

Movie Preview: The Lucky Ones

"Well of course it is — war is messy. It can't be all perfect!"

Despite the use of one of Sarah McLachlan's sappiest tunes and the three-strangers-thrown-together-on-road-trip shtick, The Lucky Ones looks like a really good movie. The movie stars Rachel McAdams, Tim Robbins, and Crash's Michael Peña as Iraq War soldiers who return home and end up on a road trip together. What I already like about this movie is the attempt to tackle — through a quirkier lens than usual — a subject that American moviegoers have been reluctant to see thus far.

I really like the montage of people saying thanks to the three upon learning they're soldiers, and the awkwardness that ensues ("Thank you!" "No...thank you."). It seems to perfectly capture — without use of a heavy hand — how strange it must feel to reintegrate into American society after being away at war. Rachel already seems pitch-perfect in this role, and I have a feeling people will be talking a lot about Peña once The Lucky Ones hits theaters on September 26.

I loved Michael Peña in Crash. His segment was by far my favorite.

Hahaha, I'm with 'ya Francesca and Megatron! I was LOVING the preview until "I Will Remember You" kicked in. And then I threw up just a wee bit. But count me in for the movie!

I am at work right now so I can't watch. But I am intrigued by the plot. "I Will Remember You"? Really?! I totally agree, Francesca Fiore.

Wow, this looks great. I'm always impressed with Rachel McAdams. But yeah, whoever made the choice to put "I Will Remember You" in the preview needs to be looking for another job. This is not 1998.

I love Pena in Crash. The mixture seems a little weird to me, but...I am crying just from the preview. This movie looks great.
