Consensus: This boilerplate comedy lacks ingenuity or humor and features mediocre dialogue that sounds less like conversation and more like stand-up shtick.

It's like eating a plain Hershey's bar on that supposedly most romantic day of the year. It may soothe your sweet tooth for a brief bit, but you'll still be longing for Godiva.

Everyone who's ever seen a movie knows where this is headed... but getting there is breezy, fun, and most importantly, well-executed.

Kevin Carr

This movie is so poorly written, with inexplicable characters making ridiculous choices, and the dialogue is simply cringe-worthy.

An unspeakable nadir in the career of its writer-director-star, My Big Fat Greek Wedding's Nia Vardalos.

All I Hate Valentine's Day adds up to is an awkward, ritualized date between moviegoer and a still-learning triple hyphenate.

Uninspired romcom is no My Big Fat Greek Wedding.

Okay but overly silly rom com. For a film with such a short running time it seems to take a long time to get where it's going and the supporting cast of… More

The most positive thing I can say is that Nia Vardalos is so psychotically smiley, (and, as someone else has noted in their review - corny. Yes, that's… More
