Synopsis from DVD Cover:
All those stars, all those laughs! AN all-star cast sparkles in this hilarious and heartwarming romantic comedy from the director of Pretty Woman and The Princess Diaries. Stories crisscross, collide and boomerang in this look at a day in the life of love. There's a proposal. Flowers didn't get sent. A big fat secret that's finally told. The "I'll show up and surprise him" that ended up surprising her. Fights, kisses, wrong turns, right moves and so much more. Whether new to love or through with love, you'll fall in love with this 19-star, funny-side-up celebration of romance.

Quick Review:
This is a movie that's been done before-heck, it's almost a remake of Love Actually, though that one was a lot better. There are just so many "stars" floating around in this lovey-dovey sky, and sometimes you might feel a little like you need a chart to keep track of everything. With at least a dozen plotlines, everybody kind of gets shafted, but oddly enough, it's the stories that get the least play that are actually the most interesting, while the story that's supposedly the foundation is actually kinda blah.

There is, however, no way to accurately sum up everything in a paragraph, so I'll go generic (fitting, in many ways). A bunch of people (Jennifer Garner, Jessica Alba, Bradley Cooper, Patrick Dempsey, Julia Roberts, Taylors Lautner and Swift, Anne Hathaway, and a gaggle more) in Los Angeles, all connected in some way to Reed Bennett (Ashton Kutcher), owner of a flower shop that's experiencing a Valentine's rush, celebrate the ups and downs of the holiday.

The best threads in this convoluted thing are, ironically, the shortest. Cooper and Roberts, airplane seat partners who bond over a long flight, offer the most rewarding payoffs in the end, and Jessica Biel and Jamie Foxx have potential in their snark. The whole Anna Hathaway/ Topher Grace chapter in and of itself isn't all that, but Hathaway is funny, funny, funny and stands out amidst a lot of blandness. The teen Taylors are a strange duo-not sure if they're brilliant performers who totally get the shallow natures of their high schoolers in love or just horrific actors ... perhaps it's best not to know. The real weakness of the film is that Garner and Kutcher are supposed to be these best friends who are actually in love but don't know it yet, and they're actually the tie that binds everyone together, but even though they're both giving their shiny all and are pleasant enough, there's not enough chemistry to warrant their relationship being the great romance. Things feel rushed, which makes sense given that so many A-listers are in need of story resolution, but all it does really is make a film that caters to people with tiny attention spans.

On the DVD, the only Special Features are 14 Deleted Scenes, each with the reasons behind their deletion explained by director Garry Marshall. The Blu-ray has more, like whole Audio Commentary, some Valentine's Day stories from the plethora of stars, a gag reel, a music video-even with all that extra, though, the DVD is just as good.

In Conclusion:
I didn't see this on the chosen day, but if I had, I can imagine it being a decent little date movie. There are enough likable stories and characters to make the cliches and gooshiness palatable-and even occasionally enjoyable.
