I expected a lot more - too slow paced...

BORING. AN UNBELIEVABLE TALE OF A BUNCH OF WUSSES. GRIEF IS PAINFUL BUT THIS IS JUST BS.

If you've seen the trailer, you've seen the movie. Still trying to figure out why I finished watching this one. I suppose I was sort of interested in how it would all play out. Unrealistic & unbelievable. Best part was the bird. Suggest borrowing this movie and going through scene selection - choose the one with the thumbnail of Eckhart and a white bird (he calls it a "parrot" but it's not a true parrot, it's a cockatoo) in dark surroundings. Watch that, and you'll have seen the only worthwhile part. Dang, now I want a cockatoo. Thanks a lot, Love Happens.

I really enjoyed this movie. It is about relationship building with snags and false starts. If you are looking for fast paced action, this is not your movie. Relationship building just doesn't work that way. The characters are quite believable.

Hmmm. A bit slow but it's alright. Not usually a fan of Aniston but she was quite good...it did not appear she was acting or stretching herself in this role. The one to watch was definately Eckhart as the super-sensative man who comes to terms with a serious personal issue while faking being perfectly adjusted and OK. Date movie? Only if your guy can handle watching another fella cry.

As a romance story this movie misses the mark. Burke Ryan is an author and self-help guru who helps people deal with the loss of a loved one. Burke takes his book tour to Seattle, hometown of his dead ex-wife. There Burke meets Eloise, a florist and possible love interest. In the meantime, some of Burke's secrets are revealed. It's possible love happens, but these main characters are not particularly sympathetic.

Good - Love Happens (2009) 109 min. Aaron Ekhart plays a motivational speaker on tour after writing a book about going forward after the loss of a loved one. But how could he help others when he hasn’t helped himself. The lovely Jennifer Aniston plays his love interest. She’s absolutely radiant on film; a real movie star whose a master at facial expressions.

A really sweet, cute film with some funny and touching moments. However the story line wasn't overly original or surprising. It didn't wow me.
