The sweet but not too syrupy romance of "The Lucky One,"starring a buffed Zac Efron and a blond Taylor Schilling, is about love emerging from the war-ravaged rubble of a young soldier's heart and the unlikely things that save him. Directed by Scott Hicks ("Shine"), with Will Fetters adapting the Nicholas Sparks novel, this is the latest and the best Sparks-inspired film to come along since "The Notebook" won over hearts, if not minds, in 2004. The Sparks-styled romance has almost become its own movie genre - predictable, pure of heart, sentimental and never straying from the boy-meets-girl basics, or the surface, for that matter - and in that "The Lucky One" delivers.

John Grisham is to literature what Cheerios are to a rushed breakfast, something you buy in bulk and consume without too much thought. Honestly, I'm relieved when a new Grisham book doesn't weigh more than I do. Yet his newest work, "Calico Joe," is as slender as a Dodgers shortstop. Coming in at under 200 pages, it is a breezy little baseball novel that will probably appeal to many men the way Nicholas Sparks' stories appeal to that other sex. Strangely, considering the subject matter, it is amazingly unevocative of the game itself.

Police say a Buffalo-area tow truck driver was juggling two cellphones -- texting on one and talking on another -- when he slammed into a car and crashed into a swimming pool in Lockport, N.Y. Niagara County sheriff's deputies say Nicholas Sparks, 25, of Burt admitted he was texting and talking when his flatbed truck hit a car Wednesday morning. The truck then crashed through a fence and sideswiped a house before rolling into the pool. The car's driver was hospitalized and in good condition.
