The Feministing Rom Com Review: Valentine’s Day

For the last year, I’ve been watching and reviewing romantic comedies as a part of the Rom Com Review series. I’ve reviewed:

Our Family Wedding, Date Night, Going the Distance, How Do You Know, Just Wright, Killers, Life As We Know It, Morning Glory, She’s Out of My League, The Back-Up Plan and The Bounty Hunter.

That’s eleven rom coms in total.

But I missed one. The year is almost at an end, and some of you might have noticed that I failed to review the biggest rom com of the year. I failed to review Valentine’s Day. It is indeed true that I did not review Valentine’s Day, partly because the Rom Com Review series didn’t start until March.

As it turns out, it was pretty fortunate, though, that I didn’t watch Valentine’s Day until December, because it took nine months of building my strength and stamina and tolerance for rom coms to endure this movie. Had I tried to watch it without the requisite training, I might have been seriously injured. But this week, after almost a year of intensive rom com endurance training, I watched Valentine’s Day. And it was terrible.

So, let me make this review as short as I wish the movie had been. Valentine’s Day is a total freaking train wreck.

And that, to quote a movie that is definitely not a rom com, is all I have to say about that.
