For a slight change of pace, I’ll talk about the movie called Valentine’s Day and how it relates to real life. Although Rotten Tomatoes scores it only at 18%, I don’t agree at all. Some of the critics were right on target when they said how gooey it is – like a box of chocolates that you’ve left too long in the back seat of your car. I agree with this statement, but just because you’ve got a gooey box of chocolates doesn’t mean it’s no good. You can make chocolate fondue!
This move is so fluffy and sweet, I suggest it to every woman out there. Especially if you’re lonesome on the day of love. Romance aside, you’ll see when one of the characters throws her yearly “I Hate Valentine’s day Party” and the chaos that ensures from there.
There are many story lines that interconnect touching on the lives of various people, from the almost-in-love to the newly-in-love to the best friend kind of love, it’s all covered in a fun way. The cast is star studded and some are a surprise – like Julia Roberts as a side character on a plane, you’d never expect to see such big names taking such small roles but somehow the producers managed to snag big names for this flick.
It all takes place in Los Angeles in one day with a similar plot to the movie 200 Cigarettes (which is based on New Year’s eve). There is one hot scene of young love between Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner which prove to be the hottest couple and they have magical chemistry which in my opinion is the highlight of the story. It made me feel a tingle inside reminiscing of days of past when I was in that stage of life – ah the good ‘ol days of innocence and purity!
Sappy it is however you’re sure to end with a good feeling and that’s what’s really important. Very funny, very cute and somewhat superficial but isn’t that’s what Valentine’s Day is all about? Download the movie here and get yourself settled with a warm blanket, gooey chocolate bar and enjoy!
