Our Score
A wealth of stars old and new are dovetailed into stories in director Garry Marshall's latest romantic comedy. Like Love Actually, the plot - from a story by Katherine Fugate and the scriptwriters of He's Just Not That into You - looks at love from a number of different angles during a very American Valentine's Day. The movie centres on Reed Bennett (Ashton Kutcher), a florist who, on the busiest day of the year, finds his love life agitated by his fiancée Morley Clarkson (Jessica Alba) and his best friend Julia Fitzpatrick (Jennifer Garner), who's fallen for a married man. Julia Roberts appears, in lock-down mode, as an army captain flying home for one day, while Taylor Swift is ditzy and enchanting in her debut role as the high-school sweetheart of then real-life boyfriend Taylor Lautner. Light, breezy, sentimental and amusing, Valentine's Day is delightful and cringe-making by turns as it sums up the heady pressures and potentially pivotal nature of the event. There'll be a favourite tale for everyone, but it's unlikely that anyone will like them all.

Summary

Anthology of stories charting the romantic complications of various Los Angeles residents. A businessman and a soldier on leave share a flight home, a teacher is smitten with a doctor and an elderly couple comfort their lovesick grandson. Romantic comedy drama, with Ashton Kutcher, Jessica Alba, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Garner and Julia Roberts.
