February 28, 2007
The contradictory sexual politics in this lightweight slasher suggest that at some point it was meant to satirize the traditional mores of the self-satisfied female characters.
April 25, 2003
In the new teen slasher flick Valentine, a public-school nerd, now grown up, seeks to systematically murder all the girls who wouldn't dance with him at the Grade 6 Valentine's dance. Or maybe that's not what happens. It ís hard to tell.

A cheesy horror flick that doesn't take itself too seriously.
February 13, 2001
I had fun anyway.
February 7, 2001
Valentine isn't scary, but it is unsettling; not ultimately satisfying, but arresting in the moment.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
February 5, 2001
Looking good but lacking much in the way of personality or gray matter.
February 5, 2001
Succeeds on its own modest terms, and the plot doesn't fall apart under credit-roll pondering.
February 5, 2001
The eeriest moment was easily the movie's last, after the nonsensically contrived climax provided a classic interactive moment. 'Sequel!' the audience moaned.
February 5, 2001
When it's hard to hear the dialogue because the audience is laughing, it's clear that Valentine doesn't even succeed on its own limited terms.

February 5, 2001
A smart, stylish horror picture that offers a fresh twist on the ever-reliable revenge theme and affords a raft of talented young actors solid roles that show them to advantage.

February 5, 2001
Not only is it deadly dull, but the killer actually courts the audience's sympathy.

February 5, 2001
The standard stalker stuff that Scream satirized.
February 5, 2001
Playing it straight with material this ridiculous is an exercise in self-defeat.
February 2, 2001
The killings themselves mostly lack imagination.
February 2, 2001
Doesn't contain a single scary or imaginative moment.

February 2, 2001
There's no tension and no mystery.
February 2, 2001
Blanks ... directs in almost entirely suspense-free fashion.
February 2, 2001
Even by the thoroughly undemanding standards of its burned-out genre, Valentine is vacuous, tedious, and perfunctory.

February 2, 2001
Simply mines the same tired, predictable slasher-movie vein.
February 2, 2001
Valentine isn't nearly as horrible as the ads would suggest. That's not to say the movie's good, either.
February 2, 2001
Credibility and intelligence are pretty thoroughly battered.
