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.

It's awful.

Not content with being a romcom that's trite and shallow about love, it's gone one step further - it's trite and shallow about death, too.

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.

Falls between romance and drama without really satisfying either.

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.

Everyone is trying to re-invent the rom-com at the moment and the makers of Love Happens are no exceptions. The formula they've come up with is to remove all the comedy, which is a bold choice.

How can we, as a species, tolerate Jennifer Aniston with her blurry expression of emotional bravery?

It's not a comedy. It certainly isn't funny.

What a title. Not that this crybaby romantic drama deserves much better.

Love Happens is watchable if you're sentimentally inclined but its identity crisis is hard to ignore.

I will hold up my hands and admit I find Jen pleasant enough to watch, even at the worst of times. But this film IS the worst of times. And even diehard romance fans will find their patience challenged by the end credits.

Love isn't inspired, it's hammered flat like Khrushchev's shoe.

Is this a movie or a feature-length advertisement for Qwest? We're not just talking one product placement; this brand name is nearly omnipresent.

Hang in there Jen. You can do better.

Other stuff happens too, all of it strained and dull.

The film is part romance, part drama, part Seattle travelogue, with Washington emerging as the only true winner. Along with the benefactors of the movie's copious product placements, that is.
