I finally took the plunge today and went to go see Valentine's Day. As a self professed Valentine's Day "hater" naturally I thought this movie would be nothing less than... well... crap (for lack of a better word). So what was my official review of this movie? Let me ask you a few questions... Did you like Love, Actually? Does the star power in this movie entice you? Are you ok with predictable story line? If you answered yes to this questions then stop reading this, head out and go see Valentine's Day! I mean, right now.
You're probably thinking "wait, she sounds like a love cynic!" I promise you this is not the case! I just don't see why we need to put pressure on all the guys out there to out do each other with gifts one day a year... I much prefer gifts for no reason when you just feel like giving someone you love a gift. So there... See, I'm not a cynic! And for the record I actually did like Love, Actually. I thought it was a really good and original movie... The originality stops when someone decided to remake it as a Valentine's Movie. Star Power... boy was there some star power in this movie! So much so that its rumored they had to list the credits alphabetically so no one would get angry! The acting was pretty decent from those that you'd expect to be good. Aston Kutcher = AMAZING, Julia Roberts was lovely as always, Bradley Cooper is always my favorite, Eric Dane and Patrick Dempsey (fellow Grey Anatomy cast mates) delivered as they do every week, and the list just keeps on going! So with all this star power you'd think they would step up the script a bit... ummm no apparently not!
Overall it was entertaining for 2 hours and gave everyone wondering what to do with their sweetie on Valentine's Day a romantic comedy to go see. I was hoping it would be more but at least it kept my attention. With all of the good movies out right now, I say... wait and rent it.
Review: 3 out of 5 Stars...
