Let's see what other critics think.
The AV Club says:
"Haphazardly toss in 15 more subplots, half a dozen wacky canine-reaction shots, a wall-to-wall soundtrack of romantic golden oldies, and an adorable young moppet who just wants to have flowers delivered to the girl of his dreams, and you have a fluffy soufflé of shameless sentiment and sitcom wackiness executed with the kind of flailing desperation that’s generally accompanied by an overactive laugh track. Valentine’s Day looks like Marshall’s director’s magnum opus of pandering schlock."
Richard: "I love canine-reaction shots, where an event is so wacky that even a dog takes notice. And an audience laughs every time that this happens, every single time, as well they should."
As usual, the fanboys at AICN are skeptical of all romantic comedies, and this one in particular:
YackBacker says: "Lady YackYack and I will not be seeing this "film." This weekend, we're gonna bake cupcakes, mess around in bed and watch some DVDs when we tire of our "majestic friction." She wants to see THE FRIENDS OF EDDIE COYLE- she loves 70s cops & robbers movies."
And Tina Turner's Vicodin wonders about the continuing popularity of Julia Roberts: "How this swamp donkey is considered a star these days is a mystery. Strap a feed bag on that hose-hound and put that mutt out to pasture. Damn."
Chip: "Look, with a film like this, the question isn't whether or not it sucks, because we all know it sucks. The question is whether or not it will get me a blowjob afterwards."
Do hipsters celebrate Valentine's Day? Sure, they do, so long as its made clear that they don't really believe in true love and fully understand the inherent artificiality of the "holiday." The best bet for V-Day hipsterism looks to be the TapRoom, which is hosting a "Valentine's Day Makeout/Grind Session with the Jet Set Bachelor / Iggybaby / Juiceboxxx." See the Juiceboxxx album cover below.
Chip: "This guy doesn't look capable of playing anything that would make me want to grind. And how can one grind to hipster music anyway?"
