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. Can Cupid finish his work by midnight?
While I was certainly conned into watching this through a woman, it was released in 2010, I went in with the review in mind and watched it through. This is definitely your standard romantic comedy. The cast is well known throughout and in my opinion it was somewhat a waste of talent. There were certainly some laughs to be had throughout but there was nothing that made it rise above the rest. Just another romantic comedy men are suffered to sit through. It wasn't unwatchable by any means, just glad I didn't have to pay to see it in theaters. If you're being pestered to find a movie for the lady friend, it will work, but I'm sure there are better options out there.
