Two movies that premiered Tuesday night both have the word "love" in their titles.And that's pretty much where the similarities end. One is a romantic drama with Jennifer Aniston and Aaron Eckhart. The other is a documentary from filmmaker Michael Moore.

The man behind "Bowling for Columbine," "Fahrenheit 9/11" and "Sicko" is now offering us "Capitalism: A Love Story," a documentary that explores the causes of the global economic meltdown, which Moore has called "the biggest swindle in American history."

Stars walked the red carpet in Beverly Hills to support Moore, someone who's never at a loss for words.

"We have to get the money out of politics. These politicians are paid for by Wall Street, by corporate America," said Moore on the red carpet. "We're never going to get any of the laws passed that we need that benefit working people in this country as long they're on the take to Wall Street. That has got to stop -- number one."

It was a different scene in Westwood for the premiere of "Love Happens."

Aaron Eckhart plays a grief counselor not dealing with his own grief.

"This is a movie for entertainment, but I hope that people who have suffered a loss in their life or who are suffering one now will find this is an empathetic film," said Eckhart at the premiere.

"Love Happens" is a romantic drama. And its leading lady is certainly no stranger to movies about love.

When asked what it is about love that Jen loves so much, she replied, "Love! What is there not to love about love? That's it."

"Love Happens" opens Friday. Moore's documentary hits theaters September 23.
