4.0 out of 5 stars carefully made film and well acted July 1 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
When i watch a film and listen to commentary(which only dvd has made available) i hear so much valuable info which previous moviegoers and film fans,even us who know the medium from the 1930's,and right off the bat the many voices behind the film,a film which deserves to be at Sundance,describe it as an independ film,not really tied to a studio which would have trouble with a film like this,especially with popular stars which heightens there attention in divergent directions. The beauty of the independent film,and for artistically inclined filmmakers that we have here,that is an important fact. They usually mull over the ideas,produce a script,think about it,and the whole process can take years,and much of it unpaid work. Jennifer aniston is the star of the piece,but she really is not the primary focus of the film,which the commentators say is the male character, their 'hero' of the piece. Although there are female characters,one a victim,but the male character they mention as being particularly absorbing and worthy of mention,not even the aniston character. It is not always good that producers say they have a hero,since then someone is centered out,and relations do not really develop between characters,but only the hero the good one,and the people of lesser value and virtue he must contend with,which is everyone else. But that's the story he has to tell. There are visual images of lampposts and tall buildings...greek theater,bars,these are physical symbols,symbols of parrots,and many symbols of dogs,bitches,and a large dog which kills the male character,a smart psychanalytically trained persona of good precise language,carefully structured,in a freak accident. To understand the accident is to understand the film. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Death, where is thy sting.... Feb. 4 2010
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
It is not often that 'popular romance comedies' have the courage to tackle issues like death and grieving and make the story work, but such is the case with LOVE HAPPENS, a good little film written (with Mike Thompson) and directed by Brandon Camp. And it helps to have a solid cast of popular and well-schooled actors to pull off a subject that might make a few people uneasy.

Dr. Burke (Aaron Eckhart) is a seminar man who runs a business with his colleague Lane (Dan Fogler) based on helping people cope with grief - a group called 'A-Okay'. Burke is a popular guru, more so because of his reason for ministering to grievers: his beloved wife died three years ago in a car accident so Burke can speak about grief from experience. But it seems he is running away from something, too. Most of his followers don't notice, but one man Walter (John Carroll Lynch) is a particularly needy client and seems to pick up on something missing in Burke's seminars. Burke is currently in Seattle (his deceased wife's home) with his manager Lane (who is cooking up all manner of marketing tools and opportunities for the A-Okay team). Burke happens to literally bump into Eloise (Jennifer Aniston) who owns a flower business catering to the hotel in which the seminar is being staged. Eloise seems addicted to losers, and is freshly apart from her latest affair: she is comforted and supported by her sole employee, the somewhat dingy Marty (Judy Greer in a terrific cameo), who encourages Eloise to look for some stability in her next mate.

Burke is attracted to Eloise but is so out of practice in the dating game that he comes across as vulnerable - a trait that makes Eloise wary at first and attracted later. The odd things the two do in the mating dance finally result in the uncovering of the secret problems Burke carries. Refreshingly enough the film does not sell out with a happy-wappy ending, just a few thoughts that are particularly tender.

Eckhart and Aniston are a terrific team on the screen: both are lovable without resorting to being sappy and repetitive. Fogler and Greer are excellent as are such fine actors as Martin Sheen and Frances Conroy in memorable cameos. There is a lot to like in this film that makes it a step above the usual 'chick flicks' that were more popular in theaters. Perhaps audiences, sadly, have difficulty hearing about grieving, but death, as well as Love, happens! Grady Harp, February 10

4.0 out of 5 stars Just in time for Valentines Day, a REAL romance. Feb. 10 2010
By Tim Lasiuta - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
"Love Happens" is the perfect name for this true turn of heart film.

Jennifer Aniston and Aaron Eckhart star as florist (Eloise Chandler) and self help guru (Dr Burke Ryan) as they slowly run through each others' emotional defensive shields. Dr Ryan, is a successful self help speaker who helps people deal with grief and loss, but cannot deal with his own issues. Eloise Chandler is a florist with several 'lost' relationships. Through the film both main characters dodge what is happening, and when they least expect it, love truly happens.

So much for the summary.

Unlike man films with truly predictable outcomes and even dialogue, Love Happens, falls just outside the envelope. It is not predictable, but more believable as far as scripting goes. Not sappy, but sappy enough for the lover of chick flicks, it strikes the right chord.

Both Aniston and Eckhart are believable in their roles. Their onscreen chemistry is remarkable and renders this film one of the best in current memory.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful Dec 23 2010
By Stephanie Courtemanche - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I found this movie to be extremely helpful in the time I needed support the most. My little brother died obout a month ago. When I came home from the funeral this movie was in my mailbox from Netflix. I didn't even realize it was partly about letting go and taking the time needed to mourn the loss of our loved ones. I'm so thankful for watching this movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Knock Me Over With A Feather! Feb. 23 2011
By D. Mikels - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I thoroughly dislike chick flicks, and rom-coms are just flat out annoying. So why do I like LOVE HAPPENS? Believe me, I gave this film every chance to bug me to the point I would stop watching, but it never happened. So again, why? I'll try to hack out a soppy answer.

Chemistry. There is a legitimate chemistry between LOVE HAPPENS stars Jennifer Aniston and Aaron Eckhart; they're not cookie cutter one-dimensionals that populate so many other films of this genre--these characters are believable, interact believably, and harbor true anguish and pain. Eckhart, playing self-help guru Burke (who has penned a bestseller about how to deal with pain and loss), by fate meets Eloise (Aniston), who is the florist for the Seattle hotel where Burke is conducting a seminar. Even though Burke is helping others cope with their grief, it becomes more and more obvious he's bottling up some pain of his own. (His wife having died in an auto accident some years before.) Meanwhile Eloise has been in one disastrous relationship after another, but she has a heart of gold and is willing to help Burke--if Burke will first help himself. All of this rushes headlong to a climactic scene featuring an interaction between Burke and his former father-in-law (Martin Sheen is very special); this scene was so compelling and poignant and tender I had to keep reminding myself I normally don't like movies like this.

Sure, much of the film is sappy and contrived, and Eloise's habit of leaving obscure words behind paintings at the hotel struck me as more than annoying, but overall I very much enjoyed LOVE HAPPENS. Dan Fogler and John Carroll Lynch stand out amidst a solid supporting cast. There's pain, there's humor, there's romance, there's anguish--in short, there's life. Why? Because LOVE HAPPENS.

1.0 out of 5 stars Should Have Been Called, 'This Seminar Is Taking Way Too Long' Aug. 9 2010
By Trevor D. Hoier - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This movie reminds me a lot of other films in the same genre. It resembles a trainwreck.

The saddest thing about the whole pie is that it took two knuckleheads to actually write it.

By the end, I didn't really realize that love happened, I just kept thinking that it was a really long seminar in Seattle and that nothing was resolved at all...and what kind of seminar is this, anyway? I couldn't tell if he was a motivational speaker, a grief counselor or a lying hypocrite. Maybe the answer is All of the Above.

Aaron Eckhart plays a motivational counseling hypocrite who has lost his wife in a devastating car accident. Don't worry if you miss the flashback the first time because it's rehashed at least eight more times throughout this masterpiece. They just speed up the film rate (aka slow motion) of the dog on the rainy road for maximum impact...but it honestly just makes you laugh the more they show it.

Anyway, Aaron sees a pretty flower girl who sure lounges around this hotel lobby an awful lot. It seems like she should be in housekeeping as opposed to a florist. Her name is Jennifer Anniston. He asks her out and they fumble their way through scenes for about an hour + where nothing really happens and neither character is remotely interesting.

A bad sign for a romantic comedy is when neither character has any redeeming quality. Eckhart sits around, drinks vodka and feels sorry for himself regarding the loss of his wife....yet he runs a seminar on trying to help people how to cope with a loss. There's a bumbling character that wants to quit the seminar, who lost his son, and the filmmakers stumble their way trying to make this some sort of subplot...thankfully, all Aaron has to do is to take him to the Home Depot and give him a shopping cart. Huh?

This movie almost lost me at the very beginning when there is a montage of artsy compositions of lemons being cut up into wedges. The scene ends where they say something along the lines of, '...you have to make lemonade." The camera pans to the right and there's a bottle of Grey Goose. Whah?

It definitely lost me about four minutes later when we are introduced to who Eckhart is as he gives an introductory speech at his seminar where you're just scratching your head thinking, what the hell was that and what sense did any of it make? "He wins the National Championship Game, goes home, and shoots himself in the face. OK, we're gonna have a great week, I'll see you all very soon!!"

What is Martin Sheen so ticked off about? He hates the bird, he runs to the closing ceremony to yell at his son in law about the bird, he makes up with him, he...what the hell is going on? And who cast Eckhart's sidekick who has a perm mullet and just seems completely out of place the entire time? I do think the best part of the movie is the dramatic confession by Eckhart at the end and they show mulletman in tears. My wife and I were both cracking up.

Here's a little word that I would like to write behind a painting in the hotel lobby that epitomizes everything about this production: "redoubtable"
