Are you celebrating Valentine’s Day today, or are you one of the “I Hate Valentine’s Day” followers?
Here’s a brief film review of a newly released Valentine’s Day comedy, the preview of which I saw last Monday at El Con theater. Check out the website, of this movie which opened two days ago on 2/12/10.
“Valentine Day” stars a number of beautiful, famous actresses– including Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Jennifer Garner, Anne Hathaway, Julia Roberts, and beautiful, famous actors –Bradley Cooper, Eric Dane, Patrick Dempsey, Jamie Foxx, Ashton Kutcher, among others. Wow, that cast alone would make most of us go to the movie.
The plot basically revolves around a Los Angeles florist shop owner/manager who is in love, has a best woman friend, has to help customers send Valentine flowers on probably the busiest day of his job, along with his workers. Most of the twenty characters interact, so it’s a complicated film, but quite funny and definitely a “date flick”.
It’s all about a day in the life of love.
But more importantly, the movie portrays different types of love: high school romances, the dating game at work, romantic love, married love, parental and grandparental love, love for a teacher, gay love, straight love, elderly love.
And there are even scenes of a hilarous “I Hate Valentine’s Day” party, with Jamie Foxx playing the piano.
Enjoy today however you celebrate it. Happy V-Day (or not).
