A vacationing woman meets her ideal man, leading to a swift marriage. Back at home, however, their idyllic life is upset when they discover their neighbors could be assassins who have been contracted to kill the couple.
More than a dozen Angelenos navigate Valentine's Day from early morning until midnight. Three couples awake together, but each relationship will sputter; are any worth saving? A grade-school boy wants flowers for his first true love; two high school seniors plan first-time sex at noon; a TV sports reporter gets the assignment to find romance in LA; a star quarterback contemplates his future; two strangers meet on a plane; grandparents, together for years, face a crisis; and, an "I Hate Valentine's Day" dinner beckons the lonely and the lied to.

If you loved 'Love Actually' do NOT see Valentine's Day
All star cast, great premise and timely release unfortunately do not
make up for poor script, tacky comedy and a general go nowhere film.
Basically a Hollywood rip off of something that the UK has already done

well spent. Don't waste your money - $12 will buy cheap roses from the
petrol station and will probably be a more memorable gift to your
