Jennifer Aniston and Aaron Eckhart are both singulars in real life, but fall short of our ‘sexy, savvy, single’ motto in this new movie from Brandon Camp.
I’ll admit I was mildly excited about seeing Aaron Eckhart on the big screen once again.
The film failed to pull at my heartstrings, mostly because of my frustration with the strained script and predictable plot.The movie purposefully reveals only small insights into Eloise’s character, attempting to show that she’s the elusive type.The attempt to create a sense of indefinable mystery about Eloise fails – succeeding only in producing an underdeveloped, contradictory character.I don't expect this to be one of the best romances of this decade, but there's something about the painfully sad look on Eckhart's face and the shyness of Aniston's character that got me. This obviously isn't for everyone, but I'm looking forward to it.
Eckhart struggles in a role he shouldn’t have taken in the first place.
