Goofs

On the bridge when Alphonso is fishing and talking to Reed, the camera goes back and forth to both sides of Alphonso. Alphonso is holding the fishing pole different each time, on one side he is holding the handle and the fishing line and the other he is holding the handle and the pole, not the line. Also, importantly, he is using a bait-casting reel and the proper way to keep the line from unreeling is to place your thumb on the spool. The way he is holding the reel is like that of a spinning reel. See more »

Quotes

Reed Bennett: That's what I'm doing here. Because apparently everyone and their mother felt that way but nobody had the guts to tell me. And now, I'm left with some stupid ring and an empty closet and an ache in my gut the size of Texas because nobody told me.

Extremely superficial
17 February 2010 | by (Zurich, Switzerland) – See all my reviews

This is one of the worst films I have ever seen, which is quite an achievement for a film with so many well-known actors.

I think I agree with many people that the film is very boring, too long, too predictable and that the humor is rather flat and not very original.

However, many people seem to think that this is a romantic comedy, and while this is probably really the genre for which this film is classified, there is very little about love and romance in this film. But I disagree. Yes, the characters do have sex quite often and they sometimes flirt, but there are no deep feelings in the film, no love, no romance, everything is very superficial - superficial people, superficial feelings, very superficial stories.

When I watched the film, I even thought that this might be a way in which one could appreciate it: as a kind of horror film about a world without love in which people flirt superficially and have sex, but are completely unable to have deeper feelings for someone. If viewed this way, the film might almost be interesting. But obviously, this would mean interpreting too much into this film. The film is extremely commercial, and a film with the name 'Valentine's Day' that comes out around Valentine's day and has many famous actors in it is bound to have some success, and therefore, more interesting stories and the depiction of expressions of real feelings would be a waste of resources. Sex is obviously easier to depict that deeper feelings, therefore, there is just sex and no love - the makers of this film are very parsimonious.

There is nothing original about this film, and luckily we can be quite sure that it will soon be forgotten.
