Happy Valentine’s Day from Alcohollywood! ‘Tis the season for love, and in the 21st century, that also means shitty romantic comedies. While we’ve covered some stinkers in the past, none come off as more of a blatant product driven by daytime talk shows and the cult of celebrity than 2010’s Garry Marshall fluff Valentine’s Day!
This film is a blend of Love, Actually, Magnolia and Eat Pray Love, in that it’s a mixture of small, intertwined stories about love experienced by Rich, Beautiful White People. Along with guest panelist Julia, we’ve got a lot to say about the film – but be sure to have your custom drink and rules handy at the same time!
