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.
| Original Score: 6.5/10
It tries so hard to capture the magic of films like Love Actually but just stumbles.
| Original Score: 2/5
A collection of intertwined romances with the fleeting "aww" factor of a candy sweetheart.
It's not even worth it for the star worship. Go watch My Bloody Valentine instead.
| Original Score: 0.5/5
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.
| Original Score: 5/10
Despite the best efforts of the players, the script is just flat.
| Original Score: D
the equivalent of taking your hooker to Taco Bell
| Original Score: 0/4
A melange of stories, some that work, some that don't. Entertaining for what it is, but for little more.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
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.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
Watchable enough to make one occasionally forget just how stupid the whole enterprise is.
| Original Score: C-
A bonafide romantic comedy for the OMG generation...
Now, don't get me wrong. Valentine's Day is bad. But it's difficult to hate a Garry Marshall movie. [Blu-ray]
| Original Score: 2/4
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.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
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.
There's so much terminal cuteness in the picture, I wanted to walk away after the first twenty minutes. Nevertheless, I stayed the course.
| Original Score: 4/10
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
| Original Score: B
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.
...a breezy bit of escapist fare that's as watchable as it is romantic.
| Original Score: 3/4
The film goes through frolicky motions
