After watching the new “Love Happens” international movie trailer, I feel like I have seen the whole movie.
I like watching Jennifer Aniston films, but the movie looks like just another cliche — man can’t move forward from the death of his wife … beautiful 30-something woman has given up on men … the two find each other despite obstacles and their baggage … they fall in love … they break up … they get back together in the end. Oh, and of course, each has a less attractive best friend telling them what to do and acting as a sounding board.
Maybe the movie will surprise me if I see it. And I like Aniston and Aaron Eckhart, so I’ll probably rent it. But I doubt I’ll pay $9 to see it in the theater.
“Love Happens” is scheduled to hit theaters Sept. 18.
