Product Description

The romantic duo behind MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING reunites for an all-new love story with a big fat twist! Nia Vardalos stars as Genevieve, an independent single woman who owns a Brooklyn flower shop along with a strict philosophy on dating: Every relationship should last no more than 5 dates so that she never gets dumped or hurt. But when she meets restaurateur-next-door and all-around nice guy Greg (John Corbett of Sex And The City), she still insists that their delicious courtship only continue to its inevitable end. What do you do when the one rule you never break becomes the one thing that could break your heart? Judah Friedlander (30 Rock), Zoe Kazan (Revolutionary Road) and Rachel Dratch (Saturday Night Live) co-star in this hilarious romantic comedy with no strings attached, written and directed by Nia Vardalos.

Format:DVD
In "I Hate Valentine's Day," Genevieve (Nia Vardalos) runs a flower show in Brooklyn, where she dispenses bouquets and advice to the love lorn with joyous abandon. Having been disappointed by the men in her life, from her estranged father to her first boyfriends, Genevieve has developed a iron-clad policy of only going on five dates. She tells all of her gal pals to do the same thing, and glares at them when they are tempted to deviate from her proscribed path, all the while smiling with an intensity that will make your teeth hurt. Genevieve even has a general description for each of the five dates, just so the guy knows how things are supposed to go. Then she meets Greg (John Corbett), who wants to open a tapas bar down the street. Obviously, this is a guy worthy of way more than a mere five dates, but just as obviously it is going to take Genevieve almost the entire movie to reach that conclusion. Part of the problem turns out to be that there is some confusion as to whether their last date was the fourth date or the fifth date. He thinks that it was and dutifully disappears from her life, while she thinks it was not and wonders why he is not calling her for their final date.

The fact of the matter is that she is right about it only being the fourth date, but, more importantly, she is wrong to have her five date plan, a conclusion that you pretty much reach as soon as Genevieve explains it for the first time. But what becomes so disconcerting is that the utter trivilaity of the former is such a stupid impediment to dealing with the stupid rules of the latter.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cute December 24, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This was a cute movie - a slower paced movie, If your looking for just something to watch on a lazy day; this would fit the bill - (almost a hallmark channel sort of feel)
*** Refreshing to not hear the F word every minute.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decide For Yourself June 2, 2010
By M. Gibs
Format:DVD
If you go into this movie with the thought of comparing it to Greek Wedding you'll be disappointed. I watched this on IFC one night after reading who was in it; while the storyline left a little room to be desired I gave it a try because I like the players. I thought it was neat that they were teaming up again. It didn't bore me and I watched the entire thing. There aren't many movies-especially romantic comedies-that are not predictable. This one in my opinion was predictable. For the most part with predicatable movies it is how they tell the story and reach that predictability which would determine the level of awfulness or how cheesy the movie will be. I thought the delivery with this film was fine. Also, the dialog was okay and the humor was subtle but above average. I laughed out loud a few times and I don't always do that even if it is funny. Some of the jokes were corny so you had to laugh because it's almost as if it were corny on purpose.

I like indie movies in general and this one was pretty okay to me. Before buying try renting it or check your local listings. I may buy it one day if the price is right.

3.0 out of 5 stars Predictably Cute December 28, 2011

I enjoyed this movie! It was predictable and a bit drawn out, but very likable. This movie would be perfect for viewing on a lazy, rainy day.

2.0 out of 5 stars A smile is worth a thousand deaths June 11, 2010
Format:DVD
What do you get when you have "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" and strip away the family which adds charm and personality, and then put the entire focus on just the two leads? An unfunny, insipid, character-less piece of affectionate schlock, aka "I Hate Valentine's Day". I rather see that N'Sync fellow make another dirty Greek joke.

Part of what makes this movie unfunny is the abundance of awkward silences. An awkward silence joke usually works when a character is outrageously goofy to begin with and the line is so panned out that the crowd's silence is actually funny; even dry, uncomfortable silence can be funny. However, when John Corbett's character, Greg, made a comment about 'Get On Tapas' and no one spoke, it's neither goofy nor dry-humor. It's just awkward, and the same joke's been used at least three more times; it wasn't funny the first time around. None of the cast tried to put in the effort to make the witty banter less bland than they already were, and how they deliever them were absolutely cringe-worthy, like how that girl was making a scrapbook for her stalkee of the day. What's really insufferable is the main character, Genevieve (played by director/co-star Nia Vardalos). It's irritating by the way she almost always smiled and has a cheerful outlook, even when she made a cynical comment; she's rather disturbing than wholesome, and come to think of, Nia's like that in all of her films. As for her love interest/trophy guy, Greg, well if you've seen "Greek" and "United States of Tara", you know Corbett is playing the same darn character.

I can enjoy

2.0 out of 5 stars She's no Orson Welles; this is no Citizen Kane February 11, 2010
Format:DVD
You hate Valentine's Day? Well I hate this movie. I'm being generous in awarding this film two stars. Fortunately I was able to watch it in the privacy of my own home and was therefore able to end the pain after forty-five minutes. If someone had forced me to sit through the entire thing, I would have dropped it down to only one star.

Apparently Nia Vardalos wrote the screenplay, directed and starred in this film. I would have to lay much of the blame upon the producer for allowing her to wear so many hats but she was probably the producer as well. To know for sure would require me to actually sit through the opening credits again and I would rather undergo another root canal than have to spend any more time watching this film.

Frankly I've seen examples of better directing on YouTube videos, and most of those films were shot using only one camera. Anyone who attended more than the first week of a high-school film directing class knows that you can't simply alternate chest shots of two speaking actors for several minutes without putting your audience to sleep, and that changing to an occasional over-the-shoulder shot doesn't break the monotony. Maybe Ms. Vardalos missed class the day that they taught something called the "two shot," or maybe she also served as the editor on the film. As I have already mentioned, I'm certainly not going to spend any more time watching the credits to find out.

Of course the problem with directing your own performance is that there is no one who can tell you that your performance might be improved if you would simply vary your facial expression from time to time during the course of the movie. Maybe Ms.

1.0 out of 5 stars stupid premise; ridiculous ending

3.0 out of 5 stars Flimsy premise. Predictable storyline. Mediocre.
Somewhat fun, but plenty of things I could have done without. Weak set-up. Unrealistic. Contrived. Still kind of fun, but not the best romantic comedy by any means.
