Aptly described as “a celebration of romance,” Valentine’s Day follows the lives of an array of characters throughout one romantic holiday. The star-studded film includes about 19 different actors and actresses. As we follow each character, it is soon apparent that all have some connection to another, and all are touched (in positive or negative ways) by their relationships.
A virtual who-who of romantic comedy, the cast is the highlight of the film, each with their own scene-stealing performance. As almost all romantic comedies are, the plot lines are blatantly predictable. Yet that’s why we watch them – for the happy endings. From young, puppy love to tender, long-lasting love; Valentine’s Day covers it all. There are also plenty of laugh-out-loud moments in this light-hearted feel-good flick. I have to admit that before watching it, I thought that there were going to be too many characters and storylines going on. I didn’t think it was possible to tie them all together. I am happy to be proven wrong. Director Garry Marshall is king of romantic comedy. And his latest is just as fun and full of magic as some of his previous hit films.
Since this is a romantic comedy, I don’t think the Blu-ray edition added much to the film viewing experience. But the Blu-ray combo back does come with loads of extra bonus features.
