The new Jennifer Aniston/Aaron Eckhart romance opening tomorrow is called ... Love Happens. Which would seem to be based on ... you know, the common phrase? "[Blank] Happens"? I'm not saying they're directly attempting to link love and [blank], but it sort of feels that way, doesn't it? Maybe the movie is darker than the trailer makes it appear. If that is indeed the intention, we may be opening up an entire new world of depressing movie titles based on the world's most downbeat platitudes.
