Valentine's Day - The movie

By: Gause Chere


Good ensemble performances with several surprises near the end. Good light entertainment with good performances by Taylor Swift, Jamie Foxx, Jessica Alba, Kathy Bates, Jessica Biel, Eric Dane, Patrick Dempsey, Hector Elizondo, Topher Grace, Anne Hathaway, Ashton Kutcher, Queen Latifah, Taylor Lautner, George Lopez, Shirley Maclaine, Emma Roberts, and Julia Roberts. It follows the life experiences of many Los Angelenos on Valentine's Day with some intimate looks in to some touching events, many intertwined in unexpected ways. You won't be disappointed.

I really loved this movie when I saw it in the theater. And I just continue to love it. All the vignettes and characters are great and engaging. Reed's story [which is one of the main ones] still moves me. A fun watch with few misses [I could have done without the whole Taylor/Taylor storyline, brief as it was. It was annoying and unnecessary in my opinion!] I would highly recommend this movie!

I am not a big movie fan. There are more movies I do not like than like, and you might consider this when judging this review.

This movie is lucky to get any stars. The script and the flow of the movie are too broken up. No charachter is fleshed out and one really doesn't care what happens to any of them. Perhaps the problem is too many stories are being told at the same time. The scriptwriter may consider himself a Tolstoy or Joyce but he isn't.

Perhaps the movie is meant for people who have problems with keeping attention on anything that involves more than a few minutes. If so, the movie works.

Anyone want to buy a bad movie cheap? Let me know. Thank you.

movie has a LOT of people in it. It can be a little confusing because of that, but all in all, I really liked it a lot. Ashton Kutcher, in particular, did a very good job with what he had. Because of the large cast, there were so many storylines floating around it was easy to get lost. Also, there really wasn't much time devoted to most of the stories, which meant you really couldn't get a real grip on them. But, for a couple of hours, you can let go of your life, and try to get caught up in someone else's. Especially on a day for couples, when you are a single.

I really really thought this was going to be a chic flick and picked it up because my wife thought it would be cute. Within about 10 minutes, I was hooked too. With 30 minutes left of the running time, my wife and I were getting concerned that not all the characters would be taken care of. What a great ending. There were surprises and confirmations as this movie and the characters develop. Great couples entertainment and not just a chic flick.
