Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's a very glib, shallow movie, but it keeps you moving around enough that you could actually have a good time."
‑ A.O. Scott, At the Movies
"Every skit is lame, every line of dialogue is stale, every joke falls flat, and every performance has been phoned in between text messages to agents blinking, ''SOS!''"
‑ Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"Works where so many romantic comedies in general fail because it doesn't offer some idealized look at love, but shows the power of it - warts and all - from a variety of perspectives."
‑ Jeffrey Lyles, Lyles' Movie Files
"It's not even worth it for the star worship. Go watch My Bloody Valentine instead."
‑ Dave White,
"the equivalent of taking your hooker to Taco Bell"
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"It's got a cold, shiny cash register right where its heart should be."
‑ Cath Clarke, Time Out
"Valentine's Day is a passing nod to love, like a box of chocolates or flowers that soon wilt. It's star-studded amiable fluff with no real value, but it's kind of a tickle if you're in the mood."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"It tries so hard to capture the magic of films like Love Actually but just stumbles."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"If you mainly watch movies in order to see actors you like alentine's Day is a bargain at twice the price. The minute per movie star average is off the chart here. If you watch movies for any other reason, there's no reason to see this."
‑ Joshua Starnes,
"A melange of stories, some that work, some that don't. Entertaining for what it is, but for little more."
‑ Wesley Lovell, Cinema Sight
"The film may be set in L.A., but no scene lasts longer than a New York minute."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"Charmingly cast and phenomenally so-so."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"A collection of intertwined romances with the fleeting "aww" factor of a candy sweetheart."
‑ Sarah Sluis, Film Journal International
"Despite the best efforts of the players, the script is just flat."
‑ Andy Klein, Christian Science Monitor
"Valentine's Day fulfils its purpose. It is a sweet film, suitably gooey in the ways of love, with a constant head shot of who's who celebrity actors."
‑ Matthew Pejkovic, Matt's Movie Reviews
