Too many twisted and depressing sub-plots. These charactors had either no common sense or not an ounce of virtue. I didn't no whether to slap them or pity them. And, how a writer could place them in one big happy family after all this pain is ludicrous. Good acting, but horrible writing.

The movie was okay for the most part. It proves that there are some guys out there that look for love rather than love finding them. It wasn't until his 3rd try that love found him. Some guys are so in love with the idea of being love that they are just clueless!! I know one in real life and he's a dumb as a box of rocks. Morgan Freeman's character is the wisest one of the bunch. At least he had a clue. In the end, it was okay but best if you wait for HBO or DVD. A matinee might be okay but let this movie be the last on your list to want to see. You'll understand why later. CFG

They make this movie look like a comedy, which parts of it are indeed funny, but it is very intense. It is the most I have cried in a movie between the pain and the joy.

Though some might say this movie is "slow," the length and pace are exactly what the story calls for. The characters were very-well developed, and the viewer is treated with a surprise in characterization at the end -- the sage of the movie is one-upped by the innocent. As the title indicates, it provides a broad look at what love can do to people -- it can blind those that wish to be blinded, it can rescue those that need rescuing, and it can breathe life into the emotionally dead. I highly recommend this film for couples both young and old.

The book was an exceptional read and the movie fell far short, missing main points in the story. Morgan Freeman and Greg Kinnear were good. Gratuitous sex scenes. Stay at home, BUT READ THE BOOK!
