Valentine's Day Reviews
02.11.10 by reelz
The last official count put the number of big-name stars in Valentine's Day at 21. Does all this star power add up to anything worth seeing?
"...plays like a feature-length commercial produced by the Friends of the Valentine Promotional Society."
— Todd McCarthy, Variety
"...about as personal and memorable as a seasonal card your significant other snatches up from a local Duane Reade at the last minute, knowing full well that it's the thought that counts."
— Simon Abrams, Slant Magazine
"Valentine's Day is being marketed as a Date Movie. I think it's more of a First-Date Movie. If your date likes it, do not date that person again. And if you like it, there may not be a second date."
— Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"...becomes deadly in its attempt to be a Los Angeles Ensemble Movie, in which divine coincidence rules the day as archetypes from different walks of life (including invariably wise ethnic stereotypes) intersect, and overhead shots of a freeway interchange drive the point home."
— Karina Longworth, Village Voice
"...yet another Hollywood romantic comedy that's all but devoid of romance and laughs."
— Sheri Linden, Hollywood Reporter
