....snore.....OH! "Love Happens"....snore....


Every time the commercial for this piece of crap movie, with Chiniston invades my precious sanctuary of a bedroom, I scream. Holy shit. Can anyone please write a screenplay that isn't ordinary and a big fat cliche`?

If you have the stamina (I didn't), here's the synopsis for this bit of maudlin treacle: 

via IMDB:

"Aaron Eckhart and Jennifer Aniston star in the romantic drama Love Happens. When a self-help author arrives in Seattle to teach a sold-out seminar, he unexpectedly meets the one person who might finally be able to help him help himself. Dr. Burke Ryan (Eckhart) is on the precipice of a major multimedia deal, but the therapist who asks his patients to openly confront their pain is secretly unable to take his own advice. Eloise Chandler (CHANDLER?? GET IT?? FRIENDS? CHANDLER??? Oh, Jesus.)  (Aniston) has sworn off men and decided to focus on her floral business. However, when she meets Burke at the hotel where hes speaking, there is an instant attraction. But will two people who have met the right person at exactly the wrong time be able to give love another chance? As each struggles with the hurt of love and loss, they realize that in order to move forward, they need to let go of the past. And if they can, theyll find that, sometimes, love happens when you least expect it."

I guess if screenwriters didn't pump out this kind of gaggy sweet fluff, that woman who can't keep a boyfriend wouldn't have any work at all.
