I Hate Valentine's Day

Critics Consensus

This boilerplate comedy lacks ingenuity or humor and features mediocre dialogue that sounds less like conversation and more like stand-up shtick.

Movie Info

My Big Fat Greek Wedding co-stars Nia Vardalos and John Corbett re-team for this romantic comedy about a carefree florist who falls for a charming restaurateur. Genevieve (Vardalos) loves romance, though she lives by a strict "five dates" rule. At the end of the fifth date, Genevieve typically calls the relationship off. So far, this method has worked like a charm, but when Genevieve meets Greg (Corbett) everything changes. At the end of their fifth date, Genevieve wants more. If she could only break from tradition long enough to realize she's fallen in love, perhaps she'll find out that some guys are worth keeping around. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for I Hate Valentine's Day

  • May 28, 2010
    Vardalos needs to do a film that has a good screenplay. The film feels like a flat sitcom. On the positive, Vardalos and Corbett shine in the film and have a great on screen chemistry. The film needed a rewrite. I thought this was better than Connie and Carla. However, I thought My Life In Ruins was a little better than this film. Despite all of these misfires, I still believe Vardalos will do a film as good as My Big Fat Greek Wedding. The big question is, when will that happen.

    Nia and john are good together but recreating the sparks of My Big Fat...fails here. It has it's moments.

    Okay but overly silly rom com. For a film with such a short running time it seems to take a long time to get where it's going and the supporting cast of supposedly quirky characters are never fleshed out enough to make them endearing just weird.

    Nia Vardalos is a really great comedic actor, and writer but her re-pairing with John Corbett fails to capture the charm of My Big Fat Greek Wedding. However as long as Nia Vardalos keeps putting out films then I will watch them, becasue they are always a great date movie to watch, and have some good laughs.
