It's a very glib, shallow movie, but it keeps you moving around enough that you could actually have a good time.

Valentine's Day is a passing nod to love, like a box of chocolates or flowers that soon wilt. It's star-studded amiable fluff with no real value, but it's kind of a tickle if you're in the mood.

Works where so many romantic comedies in general fail because it doesn't offer some idealized look at love, but shows the power of it - warts and all - from a variety of perspectives.

It's not even worth it for the star worship. Go watch My Bloody Valentine instead.

If you mainly watch movies in order to see actors you like alentine's Day is a bargain at twice the price. The minute per movie star average is off the chart here. If you watch movies for any other reason, there's no reason to see this.

A melange of stories, some that work, some that don't. Entertaining for what it is, but for little more.

Valentine's Day fulfils its purpose. It is a sweet film, suitably gooey in the ways of love, with a constant head shot of who's who celebrity actors.

I was most interested in Taylor Swift. You can tell the girl can act, given half a chance--which she doesn't quite get here.

With so many stars and so many subplots jammed into two hours, the film has all the emotional depth of an episode of "The Love Boat."

The overstuffed, uninspiring results would definitely be enough to put an end to this curious sub-genre.

No doubt the filmmaker's intentions were to serve up a tasty sampler platter while understanding that the cinematic equivalent of candy hearts could never make for a fully satisfying main course

There are a lot of actors in Garry Marshall's Valentine's Day. Too many to reasonably fit on the poster. And too many, frankly, to fit in the film.

Audience Reviews for Valentine's Day

LOLZ! Got this movie download free for joining some movie download service. Even though it was free, I still feel I was ripped off. It would be a perfect Valentine's Day movie if vomiting in your mouth a little bit counted as a "kiss". Cummon, Gary Marshall. Enough with the dreck!

"Valentine's Day is a movie I actually enjoyed. I thought it was funny. Well mainly Anne Hathaway. She steals the show. Her accents and the things she says. It's really funny. The story lines are predictable with the exception of a couple that really surprised me. The older actors stand out more and do a better job in this film then the younger one's. But I do like how they tell the stories of love from grade school to old school. Most of the stories were good, but a few of them were just boring and not needed. But with so much going on the director does a good job at threading the stories together. They are all linked together in one way or another. Ended up being a pretty cute funny movie. It is worth a watch."

Valentines Day is like the new "We Are The World 25" music video: Stupid, pointless and full of untalented celebrities.

I like movies where storylines intertwine with one another, and Valentine's Day certainly has that - perhaps twenty A and B list actors figuring out their love lives on Valentine's Day. It is somewhat like "Love Actually", but never quite claws its way up to the point where you think the characters care about each other.
