Valentine's Day (2010)



Critic Consensus: Eager to please and stuffed with stars, Valentine's Day squanders its promise with a frantic, episodic plot and an abundance of rom-com cliches.

Critic Reviews for Valentine's Day

All Critics (186) | Top Critics (41)

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.

Lyles' Movie Files

It tries so hard to capture the magic of films like Love Actually but just stumbles.

7M Pictures

A collection of intertwined romances with the fleeting "aww" factor of a candy sweetheart.

Film Journal International

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

Full Review… | April 4, 2011

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.

Despite the best efforts of the players, the script is just flat.

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.
