Valentine's Day, Review

We are on the Valentine's Day. Three couples awake together, but each relationship will sputter; are any worth saving? A grade-school boy wants flowers for his first love; two high school seniors plan first-time sex at noon; a TV sports reporter gets the assignment to find romance in L.A.; a star quarterback contemplanes his future; two strangers meet on a plane; grandparents, together for years, face a crisis; and, an "I Hate Valentine's Day" dinner beckons the lonely and the lied to. Can Cupid finish his work by midnight?

I am not one of those girls who get depressed on this day, but watching the trailer I wanted to see the movie just because of all those actors co-operating on a project.

The story is complicated. It shows diffirent people and the way they spend the Valentine's Day. Some of them are happy, some depressed, other find truths that didn't wanted to, others reveille secrets that can't keep for themselves any more. The characters are familiar to each other. All of them are combined in ways that makes you think, you are living in a small world. I can't tell anything about the acting part, because the actors have small roles that don't need much effort. They keep it simple and you can easily notice, similarities with the roles that they have on TV or other movies.

I know that it doesn't tell you much. And I know that is out of time, but I believe that this is a nice movie for people to see, and maybe take ideas for the next Valentine's Day. Single or not this is a day of celebration. The truth is that I consider the day as a day of love and caring. And you don't have to think about all those lovers on the streets. The message I want to pass is that you should show your feelings more to the people that you love and care about.

Last thing. If you haven't seen the movie, because you didn't like the plot, re-consider it. For the girls we have: Brandley Cooper, Eric Dane, Patrick Dempsey, Jamie Foxx, Ashton Kutcher, Taylor Lautner. And for the guys: Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Jennifer Garner, Anne Hathaway, Julia Roberts. Or the opposite. I know, I'm a little bit of shallow, but I really wanted to see the film for all of the above, plus their co-operation.


  1. Hmmm, have still not seen it but might do it one day :) Thanks for the review ;)

  2. You're welcome, Lisa. See it and tell me your opinion....

  3. i've seen the movie and i think it's a simple movie, it's fun to watch, not that complicated, it doesn't give you food for thought but it's sweet and funny. About the acting part i wasn't impressed, i don't think Ashton Kutcher and Jessica Alba are great actors they keept it simple as you said. i liked Anne Hathaway even though her role was a litle bit far fetched. i think you sould see the movie if you want to have fun and relax !!

  4. You don't get confused or something like that from the story, it's just that there are not lead actors, so it was a little difficult to describe.
    I want to believe that every movie gives you food for thought. I wrote part of my opinion in the review too.


There is lot of spam lately at the posts, so for a while i will put up the comment moderation. Sorry for that, i really don't like it but i thought it might stop the spamming. It will be down soon enough! Thanks a lot :)
