An Open Letter

Dearest Aaron Eckhart,

Oh, darling keeper of the butt chin that I hold dear, I have a request. One small tiny eensy weensy request. STOP WITH THE ROMANTIC COMEDIES. Please. I’m begging you. While I will never give up an opportunity to swoon over you, Romantic Comedies are like the Siberia of movies; there is no return, and there is no salvation. (Paging Matt McConaughey?) I know, I know… When Harry Met Sally and Sleepless in Seattle made it look like a sure thing, but do not let those exceptions fool you!

I know you have good choices inside that gorgeous head of yours! Thank You for Smoking, Conversations with Other Women, and In the Company of Men are a testament to this fact. Look, I’ve seen you through The Core and Paycheck, but this is becoming unforgivable.

Wasn’t No Reservations bad enough?

Fine. You can “find yourself” and “find true love” with Jennifer Aniston this ONE time, but after that, you had better start making wise decisions about your future.

Otherwise we’re breaking up.

I’ll leave you for Eddie Cahill. I mean it this time.

With Love,

    Amen, Liz, amen! Why does Eckhart insist on continuing to make these forgettable, insipid romantic comedies when he can play interesting people like Nick Naylor and Harvey Dent/Two-Face? The butt chin gives his face too much character for dumb leading man status.

    Someday, maybe someday, he’ll learn.

    Is it probable that Love Happens was filmed more than several months to a year ago and was shelved until now?

    I just took a look at his Amazon search results.

    How man of those films had a limited theatrical release vs. going straight to DVD (with or without having premiered at a film festival first)?

    In the Company of Men is such a great film (my first Aaron Eckhart experience).

  3. Heh, I was going to say “you forgot about Harvey Dent”, but I see someone beat me to it. He just looks out of place in the previews with Jennifer Aniston.
