Think Jennifer Aniston's love life only seems depressing in the tabloids?
Then check out this trailer for Love Happens. How does a film with gorgeous, talented stars like Aniston and Aaron Eckhart come off so sad and dour? Sure, he plays a widower and there are lots of shots of Seattle gloom, but it's not like Angelina Jolie's in it, too.
Despite the downbeat tone, these two have great jobs, awesome hair and appropriately wacky colleagues. So come on, give us a montage of Aniston trying on outfits or Eckhart getting misguided love advice from a kindly neighborhood mensch.
It's called Love Happens, not You'll Both Just Die Anyway So What's the Point?
Maybe the film is better than this makes it look—we do get a shot of a Twilight-looking forest and Eckhart's six-pack—but if it's all handheld cameras and pent-up grief we may let this one pass and just go pick up some magazines at the newsstand instead.
Because we all deserve a little romance.
