Valentine’s Day (2010)


Directed by Gary Marshall

Valentine’s Day is a nice movie, I enjoyed the movie so much and out of all the romantic stories that are all intertwined together in this very wonderful love combination, the love stories that got me is the stories that had to do with Cpt. Katherine "Kate" Hazeltine (Julia Roberts) and Edison Hazeltine (Bryce Robinson). Their tale made all the other love stories look so insignificant.
The acting that the two (Julia Roberts and Bryce Robinson) put into the film made it up for the crap that I witnessed from Jessica Alba and Aston Kutcher, as both seemed out of it for me. The funny part is that Bryce Robinson is a child actor, that itself so impressed me I found myself smiling every time he was on the screen.

The movie featured a large ensemble cast that included Jessica Alba, Kathy Bates, Jessica Biel, Bradley Cooper, Eric Dane, Patrick Dempsey, Hector Elizondo, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Garner, Topher Grace, Anne Hathaway, Ashton Kutcher, Queen Latifah, Taylor Lautner, George Lopez, Shirley MacLaine, Emma Roberts, Julia Roberts and Taylor Swift.

The movie is simple and the plot is not overly complex just the element of surprise here and there, and then in some other tales the whole surprise does not exist as the tale looked too familiar to even matter, but all in all I loved many of the tales.

The movie plot focuses on what is happening in the lives of many of the above listed actors on Valentine’s Day, some of them are facing lack of love, others are discovering love and there is some heartbreak.

The movie was received with negative reviews, but in the teen choice award it was voted best romantic film. Also Gary Marshall’s movie was a box office success making over 4 times its $52 million production cost. I really enjoyed this movie and its New Year’s Eve counterpart done in 2011.The whole idea of pulling out the best of a huge ensemble cast is one thing I give credit to the director for, everyone had enough screen time and no one was over used.
Alba on the other hand in the short time she had on the screen seemed like she wanted to be in another movie.

In conclusion, if you are into romantic comedies or a helpless romantic then this is a movie for you, and although the critics say it isn’t good I beg to differ it is that good.
