Movie Summary

Garry Marshall

Valentine's Day is a romantic comedy from 2010 that was written by Katherine Fugate and directed by Gary Marshall. The film is comprised of many different love stories, all woven together by the romantic holiday and a few of the characters. Florist Reed Bennett (Ashton Kutcher) proposes to his long-term girlfriend Morley (Jessica Alba), only to realize he is in love with his best friend, Julia Fitzpatrick (Jennifer Garner). Julia finds out that her new boyfriend, Dr. Harrison Copeland (Patrick Dempsey) is married, and also fights off the advances of one of her young students, Edison (Bryce Robinson). Edison's babysitter Grace (Emma Roberts) and her boyfriend Alex (Carter Jenkins) learn that they don't have to have sex to be in love while their classmates Felicia (Taylor Swift) and Willy (Taylor Lautner) also swear to wait to have sex. Edison's grandparents, Edgar (Hector Elizondo) and Estelle (Shirley MacLaine) struggle over Estelle's secret affair while new partners Jason (Topher Grace) and Liz (Anne Hathaway) struggle to overcome their differences in their new relationship. Kate Hazeltine (Julia Roberts) befriends Holden Bristow (Bradley Copper) while she is on a flight home to visit her family for the day, and they bond over being away from their loved ones on such a romantic holiday. Sean Jackson (Eric Dane), a professional football player, comes to terms with his love life while his publicist Kara (Jessica Biel) gets closer to a sports reporter (Jamie Foxx). Each of these characters discover the holiday in a new way, and each ends the day with a renewed sense of love and happiness. Anything is possible on Valentine's Day.

    As gooey and lacking in protein as a chocolate holiday bonbon, Valentine's Day plays like a feature-length commercial produced by the Friends of the Valentine Promotional Society.

    This might not be the Titanic of romantic comedies (it's tugboat size), but it's a disaster: cynically made, barely directed, terribly written. But quick: there's still time to esc...
