A complacent, middle-aged ear, nose, and throat doctor attempts to win back his wayward wife with a little help from their college-bound son in this romantic comedy from writer/director Barra Grant (Glory Days, Life of the Party). Dr. Ben Bingham (Richard E. Grant) has everything a man his age could want in life -- a good job, a gorgeous home, and a beautiful wife -- yet, as a result of being so content, he's lost his passion for living. His wife, Amanda (Carrie-Anne Moss), on the other hand, is

Moss brings warmth and dignity to a part that could've easily slid into stereotype, while Camryn Manheim owns her few scenes as Amanda's best friend.

The direction rarely rises above acceptable, but anytime the camera's pointed at Grant, it doesn't matter.

There's a perfectly likable, sitcomish romantic comedy buried somewhere deep inside Barra Grant's indie Love Hurts, but it would have taken some very significant rewrites to unearth it.

A flat-footed sitcom with unconvincing situations and comedy.

...an utterly misbegotten piece of work...

This is not muddy storytelling, just bipolar and unconvincing, as Grant force-feeds us comedy to soften us up for the emotional kill.

It's bloodless material, sluggishly captured by Barra, who's trapped in directorial survival mode, terrified to color outside of the lines.

Audience Reviews for Love Hurts

I thought this movie was rather enjoyable, and sweet. I loved the relationship the son had with his parents. I found that extremely endearing. Nice movie that isn't a blockbuster for most, but for me it was a nice afternoon couch movie...
