      Love Happens Reviews

      Prev Next

      Eckhart can't carry the film himself and everyone else involved seems content to settle for mediocrity.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2.0/4.0 | Sep 15, 2020

      Love Happens is limp, ham-fisted and maddeningly obvious.

      Full Review | Original Score: 1/5 | Oct 25, 2019

      You couldn't get two much better-looking leads than Mr. Eckhart and Miss Aniston, and the frequent close-ups certainly make them even more likable.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/4 | Dec 5, 2018

      Too bad the filmmakers didn't realize [its] potential, and instead, decided to ignore the special relationship that these two characters could have had by throwing in a lot of irrelevant and clich├ęd material.

      For as much as this movie tries to wrap itself around an emotionally powerful story, I felt there was a great emptiness inside.

      ...the movie finally packs a surprisingly resonant emotional punch...

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/4 | Jan 14, 2011

      Call it a romantic comedy or romantic drama; you're still not going to giggle, your heart won't be warmed and ultimately, you'll leave unsatisfied.

      Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5 | Aug 12, 2010

      While there is no doubting the appeal of Eckhart and Aniston as a screen couple, their scenes together come over as decidedly slight when compared to the weightier issues raised by the movie as a whole.

      It's awful.

      Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5 | Feb 24, 2010

      This very underwhelming rom-com spends far too much time on the not-so-interesting theories of the hypocritical self-help hero.

      Both stars seem bemused in their parts and it is left to Martin Sheen and a pet parrot to emote. The parrot, in fact, is the best thing here.

      Full Review | Oct 16, 2009

      The film is sentimental and deeply embarrassing... There isn't a laugh or an honest emotion in the whole picture.

      Love Happens is more about catharsis than chemistry. It's not a terrible film, but like skydiving lessons, you'd better know what you're getting into beforehand.

      Full Review | Original Score: B | Oct 11, 2009

      Gooey, banal and manipulative rom-com-dram.

      Full Review | Original Score: D | Oct 10, 2009

      Falls between romance and drama without really satisfying either.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/5 | Oct 9, 2009

      The sorrowing widower is a great subject for film romance; but the point is to let the girl have a proper crack at cheering him up. And, as always with love, a GSOH would help.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/5 | Oct 9, 2009

      As a romance story, Love Happens is nothing special, with the spark between Eckhart and Aniston almost non-existent. But as a drama about grief, it's much more interesting, though the blend of both does not always sit easily.
