Review - Love Happens


I wasn't sure of what we were doing that nite...it was either go for karaoke or watch movie...and as for movie, our first choice was 2012. But since 2012 is a lil bit late and it would take about 2 hours 30 mins for the movie, we decided on something else. Love Happens. Jennifer Aniston and Aaron Eckhart.

The movie started with this Burke (Aaron Eckhart) guy going to Seattle to promote his self-helf book about loss...well you see, this guy lost his wife in an accident and decided to make a book about it and it was a best-seller with annoying A-Okay tagline....what da heck....he was a major success over his wife's death...hurmm...that doesn't sound that good...but A-Okay...whatever...

One day he managed to caught Eloise (Jennifer Aniston) red handed while she scribbled something behind the hotel painting....Eloise have this fetish about bombastic words and she wrote it behind the paintings in the hotel whom required her services (no she's not a whore, she's a florist)...okay fyne...and this burke guy was interested to go on a date with her and had Eloise pretending to be deaf in order to avoid him...well of course the guy's ego was bruised and he went on and gave her a mouth-thrashing-time....Eloise was mad and she too gave him her own point about the guy's bruised ego...in the male toilet...denggg...

But that was shaked-off rather quickly and they went on another date and they became closer....one of the coolest date ever was the one Eloise took him on a ride with her borrowed-truck and they watched a concert from outside the stadium...i don't know exactly how to interject it into words...but it was so cool...

As cliche as it is, Burke actually was never over his wife's death (aha, giving others advice that even he didn't practice, Hypocrite) and had it all bottled up until one day he finally let it out in his book convention cum workshop...and people were all clapping and his estranged father in law forgiven him for everything and everybody lives happily ever after....and yeah, he did get the girl....finally in the end of the movie...already know that...

Actually the movie was not bad....eventho it is a cliche girl meet boy kinda story...but every love story is like that what...its just how they go on and on that interest us to watch...as for this movie, Jennifer Aniston does make a cool girlfriend...i wouldn't mind dating someone like (even if she doesn't look like Jennifer Aniston at all)....as for the guy, what a weakling...i seriously can't understand why in the love movies in the new millenium, guys are often interpreted as weaklings and the girls are the one who come in to rescue them from the embedded darkness...wadahek....the movie doesn't have enough wow factor...but it does make an easy-watching-time over the weekend...the message was kinda heavy, about dealing with losses...and some people can get a seriously some good pointers out of the movie....the soundtrack was kinda cool....and seriously, Seattle does look like a very exciting place....maybe next destination in mind...sure it is....all in all, Love Happens when you least expected it...and in this movie, the so-called 'self-help' guru just got hitched by a florist...cool huh....

Havent watched this one.. But will :)

I can go crazy if Wan suddenly gone forever.. Even imagining him not being here in this world can make me cry. I guess, it's not easy to move on after losing someone you truly love.. Dalam Winstruck pun pempuan tu siap nak bunuh diri kan..

If I were to lose someone I love, I definitely need someone to show me the light for me to move on with my life..

I can imagine that...Windstruck memang best...tapi itu ler, dalam windstruck tu last skali, My Soul Will Find Yours...cool huh...

but as for this movie...it is kinda okay la...i won't rave about the movie...but it does provide some good points about dealing with death of someone you love...and it does have it's comedic moments...
