The movie that contained Taylor's acting debut, Valentine's Day, just came out on Friday, but it seems like no one really liked it. I haven't watched the movie myself, but I'm planning to watch it sometime this week. For now, all we have are the reviews.
The majority of the movie reviewers have the same opinion about it: too many actors, too little fun. Valentine's day was crouded with famous faces, including Jessica Alba, Kathy Bates, Jessica Biel, Bradley Cooper, Patrick Dempsey, Jamie Foxx, Jeniffer Garner, Anne Hathaway, Ashton Kutcher, Queen Latifah, Taylor Lautner, and of course, Taylor Swift. Still, many people say this movie was terrible. It didn't make anyone laugh, it was way too predictable, and it just didn't have any point to it.
According to News Blaze, "this relatively-dreadful endeavor fails miserably in its attempt to generate the same sort of magic." USA Today said "Valentine's Day has all the awkward tedium of a bad first date, without the promise or excitement of a good one."
Mostly everything these people had to say was that this movie was a vague attemp of Love Actually , but failed.
Still, there are some reviewers who say it's good, and the majority of teenagers, which where who the movie was aimed for, say they liked it. Seems like most teens don't care if the movie does or doesn't have a point, as long as they get to see their favorite stars. Also, the movie sold a lot in its first weekend.
As said by Reuters, "...[Valentine's Day] wooed moviegoers to the tune of $52.4 million by Sunday on a long holiday weekend in the United States." And "is expected to claim the weekend's box-office crown with $45 million or more in domestic receipts."
If it was that bad, then why did so many people turn out to see it?? Well, I guess I'll have to go watch it and find out.
