Review

'Valentine's Day' might boast the most shirtless dudes we've seen in a movie since '300'.Ironically, the often bare-chested 'Twilight' star Taylor Lautner isn't one of them.

The star-studded, plainly named film begs for puns. Should we expect a 'Flag Day' sequel? But then again, this is a year that will see a movie simply called and simply about 'Babies'. Moviegoers comfortable with ignoring the calculated ploy of 'Valentine's Day' will likely enjoy its easy predictability and general cheerfulness.

Set in Los Angeles, the film begins with the baritone voice of a "DJ Romeo Midnight" announcing that in honor of Valentine's Day, he's going to play "the songs you love and the songs you love to love to."
