I saw Valentine’s Day and I think it’s slightly better than New York, I Love You!
It’s another anthology of love stories, people connected in one way or another – friends, colleagues, lovers, strangers etc. Except that this movie happens all in a day – Valentine’s Day. There are many familiar faces – Julia Roberts, Jennifer Garner, Ashton Kutcher, Jessica Biel, Anne Hathaway, Bradley Cooper, Patrick Dempsey, Eric Dane, Taylor Swift, Taylor Lautner, Jessica Alba, etc. Only thing is happy beginnings didn’t turn out to be happy endings, while not-so-happy beginnings turn out happier.
There is the mini-competition between McDreamy (Dempsey) and McSteamy (Dane) – I choose McSteamy cos McDreamy still plays a boring doctor who does the worst thing ever! There’s the bimbotic Taylor Swift who dots every sentences with “like…” and dances like a crazy girl. The story revolving around the other teenage couple – Emma Roberts and Carter Jenkins – were super funny! They were planning to have sex during lunch and it all goes wrong when Stone’s mother comes back and sees him – almost naked! Anne Hathaway is very interesting with the use of weird accents and the creative use of rubber bands – *snap* while part-timing as a adult phone entertainer. Jennifer Garner totally rocks as a waitress (chopped pig’s testicles, anyone?) and with the baseball bat!
And here’s my favourite quote from the movie/trailer:
Reporter: So, how do you guys feel about each other?
Felicia: Oh my gosh, I totally love him!
Willy: And I’m crazy about her.
Felicia: See, I even wrote his number in my hand.
Reporter: There you have it, young love. Full of promise, full of hope, ignorant of reality.
