Seersucker Suite Movie Review - Love Happens



AND....HERE WE GO!  Another predictable movie, right?  Love Happens.  So...can YOU guess what's going to happen?  Yea, yea...

BUT...this one was different.  Predictable?  Yes.  Meaningful?  Surprisingly yes.  I mean that.  Maybe it's because I've suffered loss in my life that I've never dealt with.  I've adopted the A-OKAY front, while flashing a smile.  Maybe I could relate so well to the main character in this movie because it became painfully clear that the saying:

What doesn't kill us makes us stronger!

....doesn't really help at all.  And maybe isn't even true?  I'm not sure.  I just know that this movie got to me.  Not the love story part.  That was sleepy.  The internal struggle of the main character, and his inability to accept a loss so great he couldn't process it.  That's what got to me.  The fact that one can go on day after day without anyone knowing what is really going on inside.  And I'm not just speaking of myself.  I'm speaking of others I know.  Others who have such internal angst that I've glimpsed on occasion.  And it has scared the hell out of me.  To know what resides inside of them.  And to know that people can hide such pain and suffering so well. 

So, now that I've completely freaked you out I'm going to also tell you that if you aren't looking for anything so terribly deep in this movie you probably won't find it.  You may very well watch it on a date night and giggle and smile, or even yawn.  And that's okay.  It just mean something more to me, and for that reason I award Love Happens:

TWO SEERSUCKER SUITS!  I definitely think it's worth renting, but I'm not 100% sure I would recommend putting it at the TOP of your list :)

I didn't like this movie at all. I know I'm a little critical because it's based in Seattle and I kept saying, "That's not where__ is" or "___ and ____ aren't that close to eachother," and the love story was yawn-inducing. The internal angst of what's his name was definitely the most powerful part of the movie but I just expected more.

I'll skip the $40 trip to the movies, then and wait for $1 Redbox rental

I fell asleep at this one and woke up at random places and had no idea what was going on. Totally missed the significance of the bird. Oh well. Aaron Eckhart is pretty handsome, and I have a girlcrush on Jennifer Aniston. And I'd like someone to take me to a concert in a cherry picker.

I haven't watched this yet but would like to check it out. Thanks for introducing the Leap Year which I watched it 2 days ago. As you said, it's a predictable story but it's kind of a sweet movie with beautiful scenery. I may want to visit Ireland one day.

I actually wrote my love list out when watching this movie.

I loved your take on this movie. I still have yet to see it...and will look for that inner meaning you found it it. That says a lot. I can totally relate.
I hope you are doing well! Take care..

I'm amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that's both
equally educative and amusing, and without
a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I found this in my search for something relating to this.

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something which I think I would
never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me.
I'm looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
