"Love Happens" Trailer: An Exercise In Harnessing Romantic Drama Into A Concentrated Form

Aaron Eckhart and Jennifer Aniston look to win your heart and open your pursestrings with their new romance, Love Happens:

-Way to spoil what I'm assuming is supposed to be the big reveal at the end. At least they don't give any 
hints as to whether or not these two will end up together, even though they're just perfect for one another. 
Sarcasm aside, it looks pretty good I guess, if you're into that sort of thing. What do you think?


  1. The trailer had me interested and wondering what Eckhart's character was hiding. By telling me what that was in the trailer ruined that.

    That said this movie does look good. It seems to be different from similar movies in this genre, even though I'm sure we know how it ends.

    Eckhart and Aniston look good together. Aniston may have finally picked a good movie to be in and Eckhart just keeps getting better in my eyes.

  2. agreed Kate on all points...this was much better than the very average poster

  3. Looks good.

    I want Jen's shop.

    I don't like Aaron's hair do in this.

    And I hope it's not formulaic, as that at about the three quarter mark they fall apart, there's a motnage of them getting on with their lives, but then miraculously they get it together, he walks back into her life having changed, and all is well with the world again.

    Cynically yours . . .
