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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Anyone who enjoyed My Big Fat Greek Wedding will enjoy I Hate Valentine's Day. It is another Nia Vardalos movie and she is a
hopelessly romantic floral shop owner who believes that all relationships end after 5 dates. Then she meets a man and the relationship
progresses past that and she doesn't know what to do. It's a comedy of errors and is cute and funny. Obviously not Oscar material,
but good for a laugh and a good chick flick!

I actually give this movie 3 1/2 stars. I liked it enough to watch it twice as it appeared on a pay cable channel. I can relate to some of the points mentioned here but won't go into it because there is a lot worse out there in terms of romantic comedy and comedy in general.

First the good: Nia Vardalos is just plain cute!!!!! Sorry but that's how I feel. It breaks my heart to know that she's married.......oh well.

Her movies are formulaic and predictable but as a rule; romantic comedies usually are and that didn't go unnoticed by other reviewers here.

BUT...I would rather watch her predictable and formulaic movies that watch the garbage that Tyler Perry puts out. I'm sure I'll get some flack for that but his stuff affects me the same way several of the negative reviews of Nia Vardalos movies affect them.

Then there is the master of the format.......Neil Simon. If you've seen one of his movies; you've seen them all. They range from good to great but the formula becomes tired and so if I see another Neil Simon movie again; it'll be too soon.

Nia Vardalos is a gem of an actress with a real gift for making people like her on-screen characters. Every time I seen her in a movie I feel like I'm visiting an old friend. This movie, while filled with comedy, deals with a fairly serious issue, a woman that refuses to go on more than five dates with the same person because she fears being exposed to the possibility of being emotionally hurt. In a way, it is a character study of a woman that is learning to love, even though it's a frightening prospect for her. Entertaining and funny with a serious undercurrent.
