User reviews on Valentine's Day
This is the second worst movie I have ever seen. It is shallow, inane,
crude, and just plain stupid. And it has such good actors! I'm sure they will regret for the rest of their careers having been in such a
movie. At first, I thought this was a parody on the Hollywood
mentality, but it is actually supposed to be a comedy. I finally couldn't take it anymore and walked out.
TAYLOR LAUGHTNER IS SOOOOOOOOO SEXY YOW HE IS SO HOT I LUV HIM SO MUCH ME AND HIM ARE BFFS ITS AMAZING YOW YOW YOW YOW YOW YOW YOW YOW YOW YOW YOW YOW YOW SEXY SEXY SEXY SEXY SEXY YOW YOW YOW YOW YOW YOW
Funny, funny, funny movie! Great for singles, couples, whoever. The movie has so many stars and storys going on, you don't know who is going to end up with who or where. I am defininately going to see this one again and I would highly recommend it to everyone to see it!
I hate Valentine's Day. The chocolates, the flowers, the horrible jewelry store ads that make every man I know cringe. No holiday is more superficial and full of fake emotion than this one. It's a day that feel completely fabricated, with the express purpose of forcing you to feel a certain way and opening your wallet to steal as much money from you as possible. It's interesting that the movie Valentine's Day feels the exact same way as the holiday it's named after.
Strangely enough, this movie reminded me of a film that is almost its antithesis: Robert Altman's Short Cuts. Both films take large, star-studded casts and follow their characters through interwoven stories with Los Angeles as their backdrop. This, however, is where the similarities end. While I was not a huge fan of Altman's film, it also wasn't the gimmick that Valentine's Day is. The over three hour running time of Short Cuts allowed the director to give the audience the space to get to know the characters and to get into the drama of their situations. Valentine's Day is just under two hours, and with a cast even larger than Short Cuts, there's even less time to become connected to the characters and stories.
This doesn't even matter, as director Garry Marshall and writer Katherine Fugate aren't really interested in making a movie that has drama or tensions (or comedy for that matter). They rely on stupid gags, sub-Hallmark ruminations on love, and stargazing to get them by. "Hey look, it's Julia Roberts! Oh, now she's gone, and it's Jamie Foxx! Look, that guy from 'That 70s Show'!" It all goes by so quickly that you don't really have the time to stop and think how this is all just a frothy, messy bit of nothing. For me, it's the visual equivalent of a box of See's Candy: I'm not really happy to see it in the first place, but I'll get through that first candy because I have to. By the second piece, I'm just wishing for it all to be over.
I was lucky enough to see 'Valentine's Day' days before its release. It was ridiculously funny with plenty of heart felt "awww" moments. Don't worry guys, this isn't a super mushy chick flick. Kudos to the casting directors for the yummy eye candy. Perfect date movie. An absolute must see!
