Have not seen such a bad movie since Gigli....
16 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Accidental Love is a train wreck of massive proportions, and don't let the movie poster fool you, this is a David O. Russell creation.

You know David O. Russell, the Academy Awards darling responsible for Jennifer Lawrence's prevalence? Well, Accidental Love is so bad he went the pseudonym route because he wants to wipe this project from any association with him.

Accidental Love is about a waitress from a small town in Indiana that gets a nail lodged in her brain and is unable to get it removed because she is without health insurance and doesn't have $150,000 laying around for the surgery. As with many head injuries, this nail causes unpredictable behavior like decreased inhibitions, anger, and speaking in tongues. Obviously not thinking straight, she heads to DC thinking government officials will help. While there she meets a freshman politician and sparks fly.

Typically directors claim lack of creative control and dip out before the film is complete, thereby maintaining their credibility as a director. Unfortunately, David O. Russell was associated with and filmed the totality of the scenes that are edited into this unfortunate endeavor, so this excuse doesn't quite apply. Even if the script went through several re-writes, the plot stayed consistent and the uninspiring and foolish approach is unexplainable. Accidental Love is so atrocious that it seems deliberate, an experiment, if you will.

Accidental Love is the Gigli of 2015 – it is that bad. It is almost like the film is supposed to be a bad dream for all those involved. There is no chemistry, no plausibility, no charm, no perspective. You can't help but cringe for the actors and writers at the dialogue and nonsensical progression of events. In production since 2008, there was absolutely no reason for any of this footage to see the light of day.
