It's a very glib, shallow movie, but it keeps you moving around enough that you could actually have a good time.
February 16, 2010
It's got a cold, shiny cash register right where its heart should be.
February 16, 2010
A brutal St Valentine's Day massacre of comedy, of love, of believable human emotion.
February 16, 2010
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.
February 16, 2010
The film is described as "a day in the life of love" and presents us with a group of beautiful Angelinos striving to justify a screenplay that gives them nothing coherent to do.
February 12, 2010
The film may be set in L.A., but no scene lasts longer than a New York minute.
February 12, 2010
Every skit is lame, every line of dialogue is stale, every joke falls flat, and every performance has been phoned in between text messages to agents blinking, ''SOS!''
February 12, 2010
Valentine's Day is a passing nod to love, like a box of chocolates or flowers that soon wilt. It's star-studded amiable fluff with no real value, but it's kind of a tickle if you're in the mood.
February 12, 2010
Charmingly cast and phenomenally so-so.
February 12, 2010
More than a dozen familiar faces are wasted in this trite, groan-inducing mediocrity.
February 12, 2010
This feels less like a movie and more like a strategically programmed effort to turn as many demographic groups as possible into mooshy, gooshy, candy-heart-munching morons.
February 12, 2010
Less funny or romantic than your average colonoscopy, this cringe-inducing bore provides dubious employment for four Oscar winners, two nominees and a raft of TV performers such as George Lopez, all of whom have been seen to better advantage elsewhere.
February 12, 2010
The running time is 125 minutes, a lot for a romantic comedy, but the minutes fly by.
February 12, 2010
Like a tiny car that putters into the centre ring at the circus and starts disgorging clown after clown, Valentine's Day has crammed 19 stars into one vehicle. The difference? Clowns are entertaining.
February 12, 2010
High art? Maybe not. But Valentine's Day certainly goes down easy.
February 12, 2010
Bombarded by clich, you wilt in your seat like a discarded rose.
February 12, 2010
Sugary, sappy and totally predictable. It's also what a whole lot of women are likely to want.
February 12, 2010
Valentine's Day is clearly trying to play us for a rube, taking advantage of our kind hearts, but we won't get fooled again, will we?
February 12, 2010
The film's main problems are script-related.
