Half an hour into the screening of this tearjerker from Brandon Camp (he was one of the writers of Dragonfly, the 2002 Kevin Costner weepie), three women exited during the scene in which a car swerved to miss a dog, continued straight into a pole, and killed the wife of Dr. Burke Ryan (Aaron Eckhart). Those ladies made the right choice: they were better served going off for cosmos than sitting through the self-help platitudes of the therapist and best-selling author who is — get this — unable to heed his own advice.
Enter Eloise Chandler (Jennifer Aniston), a successful Seattle florist who — damn the luck! — has just sworn off men. But she has a heart of gold to match her green thumb, so when she meets cute with the smiling (but crying-on-the-inside) pseudo Dr. Phil while arranging flowers at the hotel without a fire code where he's coaching a crowd to walk across burning coals, could love happen? Melodrama certainly does.
