You know you’re in romantic comedy trouble when the two hottest guys in the movie are (*spoiler-alert*) secretly gay and the most mature feelings of love belong to a ten year old. One Word Movie Review: DESPERATE Valentine’s Day is a love bouquet of pretty Hollywood stars artfully arranged by a veteran Hollywood director to deliver a box office hit. Yes, flowers are the core of this film which takes place during the busiest day of artificially-sweetened affection of the year: Valentine’s Day. More flowers and phone sex minutes are bought on this day than any other. Now we can add movie tickets as well, by innocent optimists lured into theaters by the slick trailers and TV ads featuring beautiful people in love.
