This film is about a female florist who has a rule of only having five dates with a man. She meets a local restaurant owner for her usual five dates, with unexpected results.
"I Hate Valentine's Day" is a sweet romantic comedy. Despite the fact that it follows the usual formulaic plot, it is still a pleasant and joyful film to watch. The leading lady being a florist helps enhance the romantic mood, leaving viewers with room to imagine how romantic she can be. Nia Vardalos is great, as are the supporting cast especially the two male florists. However, I find John Corbett wooden and expressionless. He is not right for the role, or maybe not even right for a romantic comedy. Overall, I think "I Hate Valentine's Day" is a good film to kill time.
