I Hate Valentine's Day
My Big Fat Greek Wedding co-stars Nia Vardalos and John Corbett re-team for this romantic comedy about a carefree florist who falls for a charming restaurateur. Genevieve (Vardalos) loves romance, though she lives by a strict "five dates" rule. At the end of the fifth date, Genevieve typically calls the relationship off. So far, this method has worked like a charm, but when Genevieve meets Greg (Corbett) everything changes. At the end of their fifth date, Genevieve wants more.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's like eating a plain Hershey's bar on that supposedly most romantic day of the year. It may soothe your sweet tooth for a brief bit, but you'll still be longing for Godiva."
‑ Joy Tipping, Dallas Morning News
"Everyone who's ever seen a movie knows where this is headed... but getting there is breezy, fun, and most importantly, well-executed."
‑ Ben Mankiewicz, At the Movies
"This movie is so poorly written, with inexplicable characters making ridiculous choices, and the dialogue is simply cringe-worthy."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"A contrived, juvenile and painfully unfunny romantic comedy."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
"Is it too pat to say I Hate This Movie? That's about the level of creative energy Vardalos applies to a film that manages to be every bit as bad as My Life in Ruins."
‑ Geoff Berkshire, Metromix.com
"A charmless rom-com about an exhaustingly vivacious florist."
‑ Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"An unspeakable nadir in the career of its writer-director-star, My Big Fat Greek Wedding's Nia Vardalos."
‑ Nathan Rabin, AV Club
"A big fat Greek flop!"
‑ Kam Williams, NewsBlaze
"[I] enjoyed the cheap silliness."
‑ Dave White, Movies.com
"By the time the end credits hit, there's joy emerging not from the outcome of the Genevieve/Greg romantic tango, but the feeling of relief to know the film, and Vardalos's insipid direction, has finally come to a close."
‑ Brian Orndorf, BrianOrndorf.com
"I found it to be really one note. This is not authentic modern courtship."
‑ Ben Lyons, At the Movies
"All I Hate Valentine's Day adds up to is an awkward, ritualized date between moviegoer and a still-learning triple hyphenate."
‑ Robert Abele, Chicago Tribune
"Uninspired romcom is no My Big Fat Greek Wedding."
‑ S. Jhoanna Robledo, Common Sense Media
"An indie romantic comedy even worse than most of the bigger-budgeted but almost invariably rotten Hollywood examples of the genre."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
