Come on, are we really supposed to believe that, in addition to setting out on a crazy trip to meet some unfamiliar dame from a crusty photograph, The Lucky One's Logan Thibault (Zac Efron) wouldn't at the very least have taken measures to confirm that she was single? And that the photo was even recent?
After all, he was able to stalk down her identity—you'd think that he'd have considered doing a little detective work on Facebook before heading to her place for the real deal. For all he knew, Beth (Taylor Schilling) could've aged 20 years or really let herself go since the photo was taken—or been cozied up with another guy.
Furthermore, Ryan Gosling takes the "If you build it, they will come" mantra to intense new extremes as The Notebook's Noah Calhoun, whose determination to win his girl back from a worthy opponent leads him to build the house of her dreams out of a decrepit old plantation the two spent time in in the past. Believing it will woo her back to him, he nails every detail she'd described to him in previous years, from blue shutters to a wrap-around porch for her to paint. Seeing the place in the paper, Allie Hamilton (Rachel McAdams) is indeed moved and returns to him, kick-starting the relationship all over again.
We wouldn't be so quick to bust out the hammer and nails in real life, though. That's a shit ton of work if your woman decides she doesn't want you back. And then you're just the fool stuck sitting around a house that's destined to remind you of your failed relationship 24/7.
