I Hate Valentines

You would be mistaken in thinking that this is an official sequel to My Big Fat Greek Wedding as "I Hate Valentines" stars both lead actors from this movie, Mia Vardalos and John Corbett. As with the previous film, Vardalos is also responsible for the script, however this time she takes on the role of director as well.

The story revolves around Genevieve, the owner of a flower shop in Brooklyn New York and is supported by her two workers (Stephen Guarino and Amir Arison) who also happen to be gay, obviously thrown in for a few laughs. As the rush of Valentine's Day is about to begin, we learn that Genevieve has problems in keeping relationships and when a former lawyer called Greg (John Corbett) purchases a restaurant across the road from her, the romantic movie formula starts.

As Greg confides with Genevieve about his turbulent relationship with a flight attendant, eventually they fall for each other and of course the conflict begins as does the resolution. The main problem with I Hate Valentines is that the characters are extremely clichéd and contrived at times, especially by her supporting characters and even though you'll get a few laughs along the way, the movie will eventually become a forgettable experience. This is not to say it's a bad movie, just nothing remarkable or memorable.

On DVD, I Hate Valentines features some sharp images and good use of the Dolby Digital and although at times it looks like a TV series, the quality is quite acceptable. At the end of the day, I Hate Valentines is a predictable and very clichéd romantic comedy that unfortunately fails to deliver where My Big Fat Greek Wedding did.
