I Hate Valentine’s Day

imagesNia Vardalos, John Corbett, Judah Friedlander

Genevieve owns a florist shop. She is a funny young woman with a lust for romance, but not relationships. Her rule on relationships is that she only dates one person five times. Then she walks away before getting hurt.

She meets Greg and starts the five dates. But along the way she falls in love, so it’s hard to stick to the rules.

This was such a bad film. Vardalos really should have stopped after My Big Fat Greek Wedding (not reviewed here because it’s not a 21st Century rom com). Her storylines are just so obvious and there’s no doubt at all where you’ll be taken – trust me, you are not taken very far. The film journey is all about Genevieve and how loveable she is, and that wears a bit thin after 3 films (also reviewed here is My Life in Ruins).
