"Love Happens" [C+]

An odd love story that doesn't know if it's tragic or comic and never seems to generate heat or sparks. It would have helped if there were better chemistry between the two actors. Burke (Aaron Eckhart) is too obviously damaged goods, but we don't get any real clues about exactly why until the big reveal at the end. Oops. Eloise (Jennifer Aniston) is also damaged goods, whose chief talent, besides arranging flowers, is to act more interested in this odd man than she really is. Really just an average story [C], but gets an extra point for showing off Seattle (with the usual caveats about unrealistic geography).
