Love Happens

Sometimes when you least expect it...


Love Happens
A motiviational speaker and grief counsellor has never quite gotten over the death of his wife a few years ago. Now he's headed back to her home town, and not really happy with the idea. His manager encourages him to try new things, so he hires a florist to take care of the flowers for his shows... and one thing leads to another. She soon realises his problem and sets about rescuing him... which may or may not be exactly what he needs. The critics were generally underwhelmed.

eye Weekly
Jeff Cottrill quote iconLove Happens is a romantic comedy without much romance or comedy. Even the title is misleading.

ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconViewer reaction might vary greatly, with dyed-in-the-wool cynics likely loathing it with every bone in their bodies, while diehard romantics might be able to overlook some or maybe even all of those issues.
