Valentine's Day Movie Review
Their real-life romance may have fizzled, but Taylor Lautner and Taylor Swift still heat up the screen in the star-studded date movie, Valentine’s Day. Check out Kidzworld’s movie review of this hot holiday flick!
Valentine's Day Movie Rating:
Valentine’s Day follows couples and singles as they find love, heartbreak and everything in between on the most romantic day of the year. The movie opens on Reed (Ashton Kutcher), a flower shop owner who proposes to his girlfriend Morley (Jessica Alba) in the first three minutes of the movie! Reed’s story is tied to many others, including a doctor (Patrick Dempsey) and his girlfriend (Jennifer Garner), a sports reporter (Jamie Foxx) and two high school kids (Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner).
Taylor + Taylor
Taylor Swift makes her acting debut as Felicia, an immature high school girl obsessed with her track star boyfriend. Taylor’s on-screen boyfriend is played by her off-screen ex-boyfriend, Taylor Lautner. And yes, in case you were wondering, there is a steamy on-screen kiss. There’s also a very funny moment when Taylor Lautner’s character, Willy, who’s supposed to be a shy jock, says, “I’m a little uncomfortable about taking my shirt off in public.” This is clearly not the same guy from New Moon.
The Bottom Line
Valentine’s Day is a cute movie, but gets weighed down by too many stories and a long running time—a fluffy date movie shouldn’t be more than 2 hours. The movie feels a lot like Love Actually, but with more star power and less substance. The cast of Valentine’s Day includes dozens of young stars like Anne Hathaway, Emma Roberts, and Jonathan Morgan Heit. Hollywood’s hottest don’t let you down, but Valentine’s Day still leaves that chalky, bad candy taste in your mouth. Oh well, there’s always next year—a sequel is already in the works.
