Valentine’s Day

PhotobucketPhotobucketInconsequential romantic comedy presents interconnected storylines of various Angelenos on Valentine’s Day.  It all goes down pleasantly enough, but there’s nothing revelatory here.  As a matter of fact, it’s rather shallow.  One of those Hollywood products designed to appeal to you if you’re female and between the ages of 13 and 25.  Given its sitcom-like feel, this should play better on TV than it does on the big screen.  However, for undemanding viewers that are looking to watch a schmaltzy romantic comedy with few surprises, this should fit the bill.  Film’s strong suit is its raft of attractive stars: Ashton Kutcher, Topher Grace, Anne Hathaway, Julia Roberts and Bradley Cooper all put in likeable performances.  That just might be enough, but better to simply rent Love Actually on DVD and see a movie like this done right.

    I totally agree, but as far as the attractive cast, you forgot about Eric Dane and whomever that teenage boy was with the tight little body. Emma Roberts(character) you’re a fool!
