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

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.

None of these famous faces puts more than the minimum required effort into the intersecting love stories.

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.

It's an American Love Actually without the warmth that writer-director Richard Curtis stuffs into his all-star confections, without the wit, without much love, actually.

Bombarded by cliché, you wilt in your seat like a discarded rose.

This has not a single ounce of the charm that you might find in LOVE, ACTUALLY or a number of other films revolving around romance. It's just plain bad.

Packed to the rafters with star talent and greeting card sentiments, this is best appreciated by women who cry at TV commercials.

Some of the plot strands are hopelessly contrived and characters could have been cut entirely.

With a cast that reads like the Vogue Oscar party guest list, Valentine's Day should have been can't-miss cinema instead of standard Hollywood schmaltz.

Valentine's Day is so desperate to keep all the characters alive, it's like those Russian jugglers who run around, trying to keep all their plates spinning on poles.

Charmingly cast and phenomenally so-so.

I had always thought of Love Actually, this movie's obvious antecedent, as a pleasant diversion, but next to Valentine's Day, it's a cerebral epic on par with Robert Altman's Nashville.

Is Valentine's Day good? Not really, though plenty of the actors are.

This star-studded effort has all the romantic sincerity of an emailed Valentine with an off-the-shelf message.

The set pieces, most often provided by rather hammy and two-dimensional, if not straight-down offensive, 'foreigners' were like something from low-budget Malyalam comedies.
Simon Foster

It shares much in common with producer Irwin Allen's disaster pics of the 1970s (The Swarm; Beyond The Poseidon Adventure), which also featured a lot of stars in really bad films.

How can a movie starring everyone offer so little? Valentine's Day is one of the most charmless, unromantic, unfunny romantic comedies in years.

The movie isn't awful, and nor is it an award winner, unless you count Swift's frontrunner status to add a worst supporting actress Razzie to her shelf full of Grammys.
