Storyline

Valentine's Day tells the story of Ben Valentine (Rhys Muldoon) who drifts into the small Victorian country town of Rushworth. He quickly finds himself in trouble with the law. As a famous Aussie Rules footballer fallen on hard times, he is given 200 hours of community service coaching the town's "no-hoper" football team. But is he in fact who he seems to be? Teetering on the brink of demise, The Mighty Bears (aka The Growlers) need to win three out of the four next games or they will be forced to merge with their arch rivals, Lucan. Worse still, the town's beloved pie factory, Dicks, which was recently bequeathed to the Bears, will have to be sold. For the proud, close-knit community the future is looking bleak. Embraced heart and soul by the townsfolk, this one-time drifter learns how to live and hope again - as does the town. Valentine's Day is a feel good film to make us all believe it's possible to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.

A gem of a Movie!
22 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

Every so often (but not often enough these days) a movie comes along which leaves an indelible print, not only in your mind but also in your heart and Valentine's Days is one of those movies.

I am not going to give anything away as knowing little about this film, before viewing it, was a definite plus. If you really want to know about it then read the plot synopsis.

My idea of a great movie is one that makes you feel. Valentine's Day made me laugh, cheer, cry and ultimately melted my heart. It makes you wish you lived in a small country town that has a great sense of community and team spirit.

Some say it is predictable and yes it may very well be but you know, who cares. You find yourself totally involved with these wonderful characters and it makes you wish that your only worry in life was whether you were going to win your next football game (although some may say thats its not THAT simple to win a footy game!).

In summary, please watch this movie and let it remind you of the important things in life - friends, family, community, love (pick whatever order you like as we all have differing priorities) but best of all, find that feeling inside you that you may of lost along life's way - heart.
