Kate says:2 stars I wouldn’t go so far as to say this is a terrible movie, but it is bland, predictable and cliche.  For being touted as a romantic comedy, it’s certainly lacking in romance and in comedy…so what does that leave, really?”

Richard Roeper  says: 1 1/2 stars “I don’t think “Love Happens” has its heart in the wrong place. I believe that everyone involved thought they were making a sincere, sweet, emotionally moving story. It’s just that every move feels manufactured, and nearly every performance misses the mark, and the tone meanders from maudlin to overly peppy to treacly to sitcomish to just plain sour.”

Reelviews says:1 1/2 stars “Love Happens makes the mistake of trying to soften what should be a frank, difficult movie by grafting on an unearned feel-good ending… Those searching for another Jennifer Aniston rom-com will likely be unsatisfied.”

Eric Snider says: D+ “A bland, sappy melodrama that barely even tries to imitate the way real people think and feel.”

Rotten Tomatoes: 17% Consensus: Love Happens is a dull, chemistry-free affair that under-utilizes its appealing leads.”
