Movie pick: The Face of Love (PG)

Movie pick: The Face of Love (PG)

Oh, brother.

Last week we reviewed Jake Gyllenhaal's doppelganger movie Enemy, and this week it's Ed Harris' turn.

Annette Bening plays a nice old lady whose husband (Harris) drowns in the ocean.

Cut to several years later, and she meets a guy who looks exactly like her husband (also played by Harris).

That's it.

There are a lot of different ways they could have gone with a story like this, but basically nothing happens.

Bening and Harris hang out and fall in love.

The guy she keeps in her friendzone (Robin Williams) gets his feelings hurt.

Her daughter freaks out.

It's incredibly unimaginative.

They should have watched The Vampire Diaries for more and better doppelganger ideas!
