Critic Reviews

  1. I wish the movie made emotional sense, because it’s all about getting in touch with whatever’s holding you back, but it doesn’t.
  2. 38
    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.
  3. Structurally, this is as by-the-numbers as rom-coms get, right down to the wacky best friends, played by Judy Greer and Dan Fogler. For a while, it's low-key enough to be tolerable.
  4. Some may wonder why Jennifer Aniston keeps taking projects about single women unlucky in love. But the bigger question in Love Happens is why, with her pick of scripts, she chose one so utterly uninspired.
  5. The dialogue is often grating, and some of the situations are distastefully cute, although John Carroll Lynch (Fargo) has a strong supporting turn as a grief workshop client.
  6. No authentic emotion of any kind happens in this damp, Seattle-based romance, a fizzle for both stars.
  7. 25
    It might sound intriguing to root the saying, "Physician, heal thyself," in the plight of a hypocritical self-help guru, but the romantic drama Love Happens suffers from acute irony deficiency.
  8. 20
    It's a limp romantic drama that occasionally lifts its drowsy head to attempt a wan smile, a picture that starts out being harmlessly dull and ends, somehow, in a place that feels insultingly manipulative.
  9. Love Happens? It depends on your definition of “love.” And “happens.” There isn’t much of either in this predictable, putzy drama.
  10. 12
    Love Happens is a weepie about the grieving process, mainly my own.

    I thought this was a wonderfully insightful movie. It's not the typical romantic movie that it portrays itself to be; so, in that sense, I thought this was a wonderfully insightful movie. It's not the typical romantic movie that it portrays itself to be; so, in that sense, I can understand some people's disappointment. In a very unexpected way, it's a very deep look at a man's struggle with his wife's death and the journey he takes to face the truth. If you're sensitive like myself, you'll enjoy this movie and maybe come out learning a little about yourself. Full Review »

    A tropical bird released into the Pacific Northwest would end up just as dead as this turkey. It started off looking like a thought-provokingA tropical bird released into the Pacific Northwest would end up just as dead as this turkey. It started off looking like a thought-provoking and promising film. Then the writer either got bored or lazy or both, and it all turned to slapstick and kitsch. Full Review »
