Brandon Camp
Released:
2009
Rating:
PG-13
Love Happens a 2009 romantic drama movie, written and directed by Brandon Camp and starring Aaron Eckhart and Jennifer Aniston. In the movie, Burke Ryan (Aaron Eckhart) is a successful author of a self-help book about dealing with the loss of a loved one, which he wrote after his wife died in a car crash. When he visits Seattle, his late wife's hometown, for a workshop, Burke unexpectedly falls for his hotel's florist, Eloise (Jennifer Aniston). But the romance is not destined to be simple and straight forward, as Burke soon realizes that he has not been following his own advice and that he is still very much grieving for his late wife and that he also feels guilt for the death, as he was the driver of the car. Love is a powerful force, however, and together with Eloise and his late wife's father (Martin Sheen), Burke may be able to finally heal. Love Happens is another film in Jennifer Aniston's popular string of feel-good romantic comedies.moreless

Metacritic Score

  • 50

    The New York Times Stephen Holden

    The vital signs in Love Happens, a movie that feels likes a laboriously padded outline, are faint.

  • 50

    Variety Brian Lowry

    Excise the love story, and there's a pretty good movie buried within Love Happens struggling to get out, mostly to little avail.

  • 40

    Los Angeles Times

    That this superficial romance between a successful self-help author and a nurturing florist is also a film about overcoming the tragedy of losing a loved one only makes its cliché...
