Factual errors:
There's an establishing shot of the Manhattan skyline showing the Empire State Building lit up in blue and green. Any New Yorker knows that around Valentines Day, the Empire State Building would be lit up all red.

User Review

What a disappointment!

Rating: 4/10

Genevieve is a woman that loves flowers and has a Flower shop. She
loves Valetine's day because it is the day that she receives more money
selling her flowers, but deep inside, she hates relationships. Love is
a game for her, and she never has more then five dates with any guy,
until she meets Greg, a handsome guy who buys a bar in the same street
she has her Flower shop. They both are going to start dating and
getting involved more then Genevieve would imagine. Are those rules
that she usually uses going to be applied one more time?

I went to watch ''I Hate Valentine's Day'' with my cousin in the movie
theaters and what a huge disappointment it was!

I liked so much ''My Big Fat Greek Wedding'', that when I saw that Nia
Vardalos and John Corbett were going to do another romantic comedy
together, I didn't think twice before going to watch this incredible
couple again on screen.

But it was an error! The movie is boring, Nia's character is annoying (
I hated to see her forced smile all the time!) and the jokes are lame.

Don't spend your money with this movie, because it doesn't worth it.
