Garry Marshall directs this movie based on a story by Katherine Fugate. The story takes places in a day – Valentine’s day – and it tells the story of many couples spanning age groups, providing different perspectives of love. The best part of the movie is how all these characters are connected together. Given the multiple characters, it is not easy to connect them all. But, the movie does not uplift itself to become an exceptional love story at any time. But it provides an interesting watch at places.
Anne Hathaway is exceptional as Liz. It is Liz’s and Jason’s love story that make you laugh and think at the end. Julia Roberts provides warmth to the character and also the movie. The rest of the performances have nothing to talk about.
It is not a bad movie. Perfect for a quiet evening where you have nothing else to do.
